EDUCTION & SPECIAL EVENTS
A FOCUS ON OWNER TRAINING.
The thrust of HFK’s education and special event program is to teach clients how to care for, prepare their dogs for training, and maintain them following training. We will also provide educational field days to advance the knowledge of retriever owners, particularly our clients and prospective clients. Agendas will provide for a combination of hands-on training with participants’ dogs and instructional seminars. Single-day and weekend events will be offered during the spring and early fall and will be geared toward optimizing the take-home benefits for the attendees.
Event Weekends will invite our clients to come stay at the famed Habitat Flats home lodge in Sumner, MO from Friday - Sunday. Mornings and evenings will be spent with your dogs and trainers, while the afternoon agendas shall vary. Delicious lunches at the lodge followed by seminars and one-on-one discussions with trainers. These will be intensive opportunities for our dog owners to become familiar with the progress their dog is making, how to properly handle your dog in the field hunting, and how to carry on the training principles at home. HFK will be bringing in nationally known resources to contribute to the training team during these weekends.
