The most important things I have learned in my 50 plus years traveling to summer training grounds on the prairies are 1.) You can evaluate dogs up on the prairies so much better. When he comes home you should know if he is worth spending more money on or get another dog. 2.) The experience your dog will benefit by being worked on wild birds and teaching ground pattern. It is so much easier on the prairies to teach these things to them. The open area allows you to be in visual contact with them even at great distances. 3.) The weather is cooler and this allows me to get the dogs in some kind of training every day. That is a lot healthier for them than sitting down here in the heat. 4.) The dogs will be in good condition for the fall trials at the very least. You will not have to get them in quick condition that may increase your chances of hurting your dog physically. Also, it will add years to your dog’s life by keeping them in condition year-round. 5.) At my camp everyone is invited to come see their dog. It is a good time for people that love working and looking at dogs. It can be a good vacation for you.
I have a few openings for the trip north. I will be heading for my summer camp on new grounds near Baker, Montana (13,000+acre ranch) in mid July. I am limiting to 15 training dogs.
My customer base are Amateur field trailers and hunters. I have dedicated my services to this group to assist them in developing their field trial prospects and hunting dogs.
