Ready to train your bird dog? Our Silent Command System gives you a step-by-step system to train your own bird dog. Our system has developed through decades of training dogs and we follow it in training all breeds of pointing and flushing dogs. We believe you can sucessfully train your dog by following this system too.
This video by Rick & Ronnie gives an overview of the first leg of formal training, the Foundation Level. The Foundation Level is the hub of our entire training format and all disciplines of training build on the principles your dogs learn at this level.
Some of the topics covered during the Foundation Level of training include developing points of contact through the use of the Command Lead, Check Cord, and Whoa Post. The Command Lead will help you train your dog to heel by your side, calmly and on a loose lead. The check cord exercises will help teach your dog to go with you and come to you. Rick and Ronnie will also demonstate how to use the Whoa Post to teach your dog to stand still on cue (with this in place you can later begin to steady your dog on game and handle him in the field). With a solid foundation, you can easily train your dog to be the best bird dog that he or she can be!
