Puppy Development - 2 weeks • $600
This is a great foundation training that will make sure your dog is on the right track for formal training.
Building prey drive on live birds, introduction to the field, and preparation for formal training courses are the main objectives of this development course.
This is more a building on natural ability, no rules, course than a formal training course.
This development course is highly recommended as a prerequisite before the dog enters a formal training course.
It is recommended that dogs will be a minimum of 4 months old.
Older and non-experienced/mature dogs are also welcomed to build prey drive and prepare for the formal training courses.
Dogs that have not had much, if any, bird exposure would greatly benefit before entering the formal training courses.
This course is designed to be built upon the formal training courses without interruption.
If your dog has had no prior field experience on game birds, this course is a prerequisite before the Formal Training course.
Next available classes: September 2022

$160 for a 6-week course that meets once a week for 1 hour.
This 6-week course concentrates on the skills required to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.
The CGC test requires the dogs and their owners to pass a 10 skill test that focuses on good behavior and teamwork.
At the end of this 6-week course, owners are encouraged to take the CGC test evaluation at no extra charge to ensure they are ready to take the actual test.
AKC CGC Testing Fees are waived (AKC Official Title is separate and must be paid to AKC) if this course is completed with Christopher.
AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Test Evaluation • $20:
This evaluation is if you have not completed the CGC Skills Course with Christopher.
This is a mock test to assure that you and your dog are ready for the actual test.
If certain areas need more work, private training sessions can be discussed.
AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Testing Fee • $25:
When you and your dog are fully prepared to take the actual CGC Test.
This testing fee is only the evaluation fee. If you would like the CGC title to be added as a dog's title or a certificate from the AKC, that is a separate fee paid directly to the AKC.
This fee is nonrefundable if you do not pass the test.
Retesting can be scheduled if needed.
