SkyHigh Retrievers - Professional Retriever Training

SkyHigh Retrievers produces dogs with style, enthusiasm, and the confidence to make difficult retrieves and hunt in thick cover. We do this by giving yousr dog one-on-one time, fair and consistent training, and adapting to your dog's unique personality. We combine fresh ideas with tried-and-true practices. Our retriever training programs are based on being flexible and adapting to the dog's training level, talent, and temperament. This helps create an enthusiastic and happy dog with a strong foundation of training.

We believe every bird dog, whether a competition retriever or an upland or waterfowl hunter, should be trained on birds through the bulk of their training. The best bird dogs are trained on birds, and lots of them. We provide custom training for each and every retriever, as well as specializing in hunting Golden retrievers and Pointing Labradors. We believe that with fair and consistent training, every retriever can reach their full potential. No matter what type of hunting you do, your dog should work with you, be confident, and eager to hunt. For more information, please take a look at our Hunt Test Training and Gun Dog Training pages.

SkyHigh Retrievers travels to sunny California during the winter months, January - April. This gives your dog the unique opportunity to be worked on water no matter what time of year it is. This is a great program for a young duck dog ready to go into training, or for a competition dog continuing their water work. If you would like your dog to continue their training this winter, please Contact Us.
