R & D Boykins training approach is a staged training program, that includes Obedience Training and Retrieving Field Work.
Retrieving drills begin after Obedience Training is completed. A solid obedience foundation supports building retrieving.
Progressing from frozen birds, to fresh killed birds, still reinforcing basic skills.
The obedience program involves the teaching of seven (7) basic obedience commands:
We will also teach going to the kennel upon command.
At the completion of Obedience Training, the dog should be capable of recognizing, and properly responding to, these commands.
After obedience work is mastered, Retrieving Training can start. Your dog will learn to retrieve and hold bumpers, and birds, and to deliver them to hand.
After both Obedience and Retrieving Training, Field Training will focus learned skills on retrieve targets (birds and bumpers) on both land and in water. Training progresses from short marks, to longer and multiple marks, to live bird flushing, according to each dog's learning speed.
Charges are assessed monthly, and include training, feed, water, daily kennel maintenance, and daily visual health monitoring.
