As we approach 4th of July weekend there is perhaps no better time than now to start thinking about the future of your young pup!  If you are starting a new prospect this summer, now is the time to give your pup the foundation it needs to be successful in the field.  This starts with confidence around birds and confidence with the shotgun.  The 4th of July can be a dangerous time for the future of a young pup as the loud noises from fireworks and noisy neighbors can frighten a young dog and if not properly protected from these elements could even cause your pup to become gun shy.  So this year make sure to keep your pup in a quiet spot away from the noise, there is a time and place to introduce noise and that is in the bird field.

At Valhalla we offer our Gun Dog School of Excellence class every Saturday morning at 8 am.  This is a great place to get your pup off to the right start!  During class dogs of all ages and experience levels can be properly exposed to birds and live gunfire under the guidance of Valhalla’s professional training staff.  The class will help you and your pup build a solid foundation to be the best you can be in the field.  You will have the opportunity to work your own dog while learning fieldwork fundamentals such as quartering the field, whistle commands and whoa work.  Our Gun Dog School of Excellence is a great place to socialize your dog with other people and other pups while at the same time getting early bird exposure and training development.  Come work dogs with us on Saturday mornings at 8 am, you and your pup will sure be glad you did!
