We use positive training techniques based on a couple of simply principles: dogs continue to do the things that provide rewards and they stop doing the things that do not produce a reward.
The trick to training a good field dog is knowing when to provide an appropriate reward and, indeed, what constitutes a reward to a dog on the hunt.
A properly selected and trained dog is a major part of the joy of the hunt. They factor into your stories and your memories, all the while making it all less work.
Customer service and a love for dogs has brought Ringneck Reds to life. My name is Jason Rowan and I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College where I earned my certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer. Animal Behavior College (ABC) is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school. My year long commitment to this program has provided me with a formal education in canine obedience training and understanding behavior and its motives. My certification, education and experience provide me the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog while keeping alive the spark that makes your dog so special to you.
I am located in Bellevue, IA on the eastern side of Jackson county along the Mississippi River.

When it comes to teaching your dog to be a well-mannered family member, the same techniques and principles apply.
Your dog learns to repeat (or refrain from) behaviors based on consistent reinforcement of good behavior and the withholding of rewards for bad behavior.
When it comes to training, the first six months of a dog's life is the most critical.That's when they learn the fastest, adapting quickly to new commands and environments.
The ideal starting point is about the age of 8 weeks. During these early days, we work to develop learning patterns that will aid training later on. One of the most important is impulse control!
