All training and packages from Hodous Hunting Dog
Training includes training for the owner as well. The owner of the dog will be informed on what commands are used with the dog. Owners are welcome to schedule a training session to attend with their dog once the dog is ready. Owners will be provided with a checklist of skills worked on each week and which ones are accomplished. We believe collaboration between owner, trainer, and dog is the key to a successful hunting dog.
If your dog is in need of specialized training or other accommodations please contact us to arrange a unique package or training for you and your dog!

​Hodous Hunting Dog Training is here to help you shape your new puppy or dog into everything you need and want in a hunting partner.

​We have sessions for duck hunting, pheasant hunting, and other specialized training as requested. The dogs we train will get experience in a household environment as well as real hunting environments.

​We start a typical dog around 6-9 months old depending on the temperament of the dog. We will partner with you to create a custom plan to teach your dog the desired skills and to achieve the goals you set.

We offer day sessions, weekend sessions, packages, and the option for the dog to stay with us to finish the entire course. We also offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced training for each dog.
