Owners are encouraged to participate in the training process from start to finish.  This begins with a pre-training visit to establish your goals and expectations.  Every dog that is in training is evaluated after thirty days to determine if training goals are realistic.  Please remember that every dog has a different personality and temprement.  Genetics also play a large role in a dog’s inherited abilities.  Our training is continually adjusted to meet the needs of you and your dog.  We encourage our clients to check with us before purchasing a puppy.  We can often recommend breeding’s that have been successful in the past.  Proper socialization of a puppy greatly enhances its ability to learn throughout its life.  At River Dog Retrievers, we are available to help guide you through the socialization process.
