If you are attending the next training clinic, complete the Attendance Form and order your birds online! Simply fill out the order form below. Sign up by Friday September 3, 2021.
Unless otherwise noted, all Training Clinics will start at 7:30 am for ALL dogs. You must get your birds at the trailer no later than 7:30am. Leave your dogs at your cars when picking up your birds. We will have a meeting at the trailer at 7:45am so we are ready to get training by 8:00am. All birds for clinics must be reserved one week prior to the clinic.
***ONLY SIGN UP FOR ONE OUT OF B,C,D, and E- These are all done in the lower field. Pick one to concentrate on with your dog***.
UNLESS YOU HAVE 2 DOGS ON TRAINING DAYS ONLY SIGN UP OR THE UPPER (B, C, D, E) OR LOWER FIELD (F)-NOT BOTH. MAKE SURE YOU SIGN UP FOR THE LEVEL YOUR DOG IS AT.
F is for dogs who are steady, have a consistent recall and are ready for birds to be shot over them.
Use the Training Clinic Attendance Form (you may amend your form after ordering birds we will not amend your order for you) to order your birds and ducks. Attendance Forms for the training clinics must be received by the date at the top of the sign up prior to the day of the training clinic.
Each member is responsible for putting in a Training Clinic Attendance Form for each training clinic they wish to attend. The Attendance Form can be found on our chapter website or below. Chapter policy on ordering birds requires you place your order one week in advance, pay for and take your order into your possession prior to the start of the Clinic.
If you do not reserve birds there will not be enough for you.
All birds ordered by you will be charged to you in the event you don't show up.
Bird recommendations for training clinics:
Dogs that have not been exposed to birds yet: Recommended 2-3 Chukar.
Beginner/Novice dogs: Recommended 3-4 homing pigeons (preferred) or Chukar per training clinic.
Novice/Experienced dogs: Recommended 3 Chukar per training clinic.
UPT/UT level water work: 2-3 ducks per clinic
The cost of birds vary, but is usually about $12-$15 for Chukar, $15-$25 for Pheasants and ducks. Homing pigeons are also available for $5 per bird for non shooting work in lieu of game birds. A fee of $15 for all training clinics will be assessed along with the cost of birds for each clinic.
There is no running water on the grounds, so please be sure to bring plenty of water for both you and your dog.
