June NAT Training Day 2022

June NAT Training Day 2022

You will have the opportunity to purchase additional birds to take home for training if you wish during registration.

What to expect at training day ...

Young Dogs – The focus will be introduction to birds, pointing, searching, tracking, and swimming when suitable water is present.  Training at this level is a misnomer in this authors opinion, obedience training aside.  At this level, we are reinforcing and enhancing what genetic traits the pup exhibits and beginning to shape environmental traits.  It is important to differentiate between genetic traits and environmental traits to develop our training program.

We cannot train the dogs nose to be good, or train the dog to point, train desire or cooperation into the dog as examples.  We can mask genetic deficiencies with training or shape environmental traits that pull the maximum potential out of the dog.  This is why Natural Ability Testing is desired before 16 months of age.  We are exposing the young apprentice to stimuli and situations that reveal their genetic potentials and genetic deficiencies.  We can continue developing a well thought out training program around the test results and breeders can make adjustments to their breeding programs.
