6 month old STARTED DOG



we get many questions about what a 6 month old STARTED DOG HAS AND is. THIS IS A DOG DIRECTLY OUT OF FORCE FETCH AND PRESSURE CONDITIONING. A 6 month old STARTED DOG will have all that the 4 MONTH old ADVANCED puppy has and an additional 2 months of training which include, but is not limited to the following.


* LONGER retrieving land and water

* FORCE FETCH

* WALKING FETCH

* crate trainED

* retrieving off of a bumper machine

* MORE ADVANCED markING out at a distance

* normally retrieving on land out to 80 yards

* normally retrieving on water out to 50 yards

* retrieving with enthusiasm both directions

* delivering to hand

* DELIVERING TO A SITTING POSITION AND HOLDING THE BUMPER PROPERLY

* A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO TURN OFF PRESSURE

* MORE CONSISTENT on obedience

  kennel

  leash work

* Collar conditioning

* no bite

* no bark

* no jump

* basic age appropriate obedience AND EXPECTATIONS


basically, a LIGHTLY started young DOG that has DECENT manners built in, BUT NOT FULLY FINISHED OR 100% CONSISTENT WITHOUT ADDITIONAL TRAINING.


The real reason to get a dog at this level in our opinion is for one of SIX reasons.

* IF YOU HAVE TRAINED DOGS BEFORE, JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO START A DOG FROM SCRATCH.

* You don't want to do the "puppy" thing

* YOU want to have  a guarantee of what your future dog's desire and personality will be.

* YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHY YOUR PUPPY IS DOING A CERTAIN THING OR,

* YOU DON'T HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO TEACH A PUPPY MANNERS

* YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO TEACH THE PUPPY


If this sounds like what you are looking for, a 6 month LIGHTLY STARTED DOG might be just what you are looking for.

typical cost for a 4 month old is 4,500.
