From Poodles to Great Danes, we can help you with all your dog training needs!
Obedience is the most desirable trait in any dog. Our theory on training is to teach desired behaviors through repetition, and reward with lots of praise and love.
Q. Do I have to participate in competitions to utilize your Obedience Training ?
A. Not at all! Obedience is the most desirable trait in any dog. An obedient, well mannered dog is a pleasure to be around, whether it is in your home, walking in the park, or sitting in a duck blind.
However, AKC Obedience trials allow exhibitors and their dogs to enjoy companionship and competition as they proudly earn AKC titles. It's a great hobby for you and your family.
Q. What are Obedience Trials?
A. Obedience trials showcase dogs that have been trained and conditioned to behave well in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs.
Q. Do you only accept Retrievers in your Obedience Training Program.
A. Of course not. Here at West Wind Retrievers we welcome all breeds of dogs and all sizes.
