Training hunting dogs from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and all of New England

Quinebaug Kennels' 50 acre facility provides a fantastic training setting for daily lessons beginning with introduction to birds and gunshot. Field obedience teaches whistle commands, quartering skills, marking, steadiness, whoa, and retrieving in a variety of settings from fields, woodlands, hedgerows, swamps and ponds. In addition we have access to hundreds of acres of challenging and exciting training areas. Quinebaug Kennels enjoys a great relationship with several shooting preserves where dogs in training have the opportunity to hunt acres of classic New England covers including corn fields, tall grass fields, pine stands, briar patches and ideal woodcock covers that hold native birds. Sporting dogs learn to track and find a variety of game including quail, pheasants, Hungarian and chukkar partridge.

Our gun dog training program is customized to fulfill your training goals for breeds including:

  • Labrador Retrievers
  • Golden Retrievers
  • Springer Spaniels
  • Field Cocker Spaniel
  • German Shorthair Pointers
  • English Pointers
  • Wirehaired Pointers
  • Viszlas
  • English Setters
  • and all other gun dog breeds!

You can choose to have us train your dog from start to finish, or sign up for private lessons that teach you and your dogs together. We offer training techniques, demonstrate a variety of field drills, and help you tackle any problems that arise with your own training.

Keep in mind we specialize in the "force fetch" or "conditioned retrieve". Whether we walk you through this program or take your dog to finish this important training task, we are confident you can enjoy a swift and impressive bird delivery to hand.
