Gun Dog Training

Beginner Retriever Gun Dog Training – (4 months)

This program includes obedience; beginner level gun dog retriever will also receive intro to birds, water, gunfire, and duck hunting scenarios. At the end of this program your retriever will be running simple retrieves on land and water and returning ducks (and bumpers) to hand.

Advanced Retriever Gun Dog Training – (6 months +)

This program builds onto our beginner retriever program by adding in the ability to run multiple retrieves, extending distances, as well as adding more technical factors. Running blind retrieves, teaching dog to handle via whistle stop and casting/ hand signals will also be developed in this program.

Huge announcement! Origin is thrilled to introduce its newest member: FTW Think Twice Beyond a Shadow of Doubt - “Maple”.
We recently had an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire an accomplished British Field Trial retriever and we jumped on it. Maple has achieve a field trial 1st, 3rd, and two Gun’s Choice Awards which are reserved for the finest gundog in the field.
Yesterday Maple arrived in the US safely. Now, she will continue her training and we are excited for her future. Maple is now the only FTW (British field trial winner) golden residing on the North American Continent.
Buckle up boys and girls.
