Training

Granite Ledge Kennels offers a full range of training options from basic obedience training to advanced hunt training. All dogs learn at their own pace. We take special attention to each dog. We take great pride in creating a positive learning atmosphere for your dog.

  • All of our prices include boarding.
  • Vaccination shots must be up-to-date.
  • All dogs must be vaccinated against Bordetella. Please bring your pet's complete shot record along with you.

A $700 non-refundable deposit to hold a training spot for your dog is required. The balance is due at the time of check out. There is an additional charge for live birds used exclusively for your dog, approximately $150-$175.

Before your dog goes home Chris will provide you with individual instruction on the proper training techniques and how to handle your newly trained dog.
