Training Programs

All Dogs, All Breeds, All Sizes


At West Wind Retrievers & Training, we take great pride in the success of the dogs that come through our programs. There is nothing that pleases us more than hearing how happy our clients are with their dogs when they complete training.  It doesn’t matter to us if your dog just achieved his Master Hunter Title, retrieved a day’s worth of ducks while she joined you on a hunting trip, or just walked peacefully with you through the park on a busy spring day – every success is a great success, and every success brings us joy!

Client Reviews

West Wind Retrievers & Training takes great pride in providing the best possible service to all our clients.

Before, he use to drag me...

"John was excellent with our dog Pistol, as well as with us. He kept us updated and even sent videos of Pistol while at training. Pistol's behavior improvement was a miracle when we got him back. I could actually walk him (before he literally dragged me around the neighborhood),

                                              ~ Sara Q.

 A New Dog...

"John is an extremely competent dog trainer. We brought our rowdy, stubborn black lab, Ruckus, to John when he was a year old for obedience training. We had tried to train him for months with no luck. I was grateful when we got a recommendation for John because we were at our wit’s end with him.

                                                   ~Kelly B.

Spends a lot of time on

"Scooter did above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. He was honest with me from day one about what my dog was capable of and he spends a lot of time on each and every dog to make sure your happy at the end of the day.

                                                 ~ Zach C.
