The two akc retriever clubs in Anchorage are beginning their combined beginning retriever class in Feb in Anchorage. This will be held in a indoor facility for the most part and will cover all aspects of getting your pup or untrained dog up to speed and becoming a reliable hunting partner for you this next fall. There is a small fee to cover rental of the facility. Primary instructor will be Baron Rae of Wetlands Retrievers, a professional trainer. You will get lots of specific hands on help with your dog, have fun, and end up with a much better dog for your efforts. Class will run every saturday for 10 weeks. Dogs will be introduced to ducks and water training as they advance into spring. They will also be having upper level training groups if interested in more advanced concepts.
