Free Dog Training Seminar

Any wing shooting or cast & blast package booked by September 1 qualifies. 

There are few things more enjoyable than upland hunting, unless it’s with your best friend.  Our lives are dedicated to sporting pursuits. Bird dog training falls into this. Be it pointing dogs, flushing dogs, or field trial competitors, as sportsmen we have a fondness for bird dogs. Part of it is watching them to reach their full potential; the other is the connection you share, and their endless desire to please.  Our love of bird dogs has helped shape our lives. We are students of the outdoors and learn new things every day.  Quite often our dogs can teach us something new, if we pay attention.

Brookside Gun Dogs offer a wide variety of training services to help owners have more productive outings with their upland hunting dogs. Our trainers will help teach dog owners how to communicate with your dog creating a more enjoyable experience.  This is great opportunity to gain hands on instruction on how better, to work with your bird dog.

If you don’t have a dog you can work with one of ours.  Improve your hunting skills by broadening your understanding of what is taking place in the field. Learn to read a dog’s tell. During our classes, we hope to help hunters add to their knowledge of bird dogs and have more success in the field.

The relationship between dog and owner is truly special. We hope you will give us the opportunity to help you enrich your relationship with your dog.
