Gun Dog Training

​Kerlin Kanine Training offers a complete training program that is customized for your hunting needs.

Whether you own a Retriever, Pointer, or Flushing breed we can provide a series of training steps and exercises enabling you, the owner, to build a solid foundation of gun dog training.

​If your dog is already on the way to becoming a seasoned bird dog, we’ll aid you in enhancing their skills.  If your dog is just beginning, we will give you the needed steps to start their training.

​To the serious waterfowl/upland game hunter, a trained gun dog is both a necessity and a joy. For most hunters, the bond and companionship of a well-trained bird dog are more important than the hunt itself.

However, the opposite can be said of the ill-trained gun dog.  Nothing will ruin a hunting experience quicker than a dog that does not obey.
