Our puppy program is second to none. Our goal in this program is to provide an organized socialization process prior to your dog entering the formal gun dog program. Proper socialization is often overlooked and can make or break your dogs training success; this will ensure that your dog will be ready for the next level of training. This program is designed to promote a strong and stylish work ethic through the proper introductions of retrieving on land and water with birds and dummies. Your puppy will also get introduced to gunfire and get tons of people exposure while going through this program.
Ridgemark Retrievers offers an obedience only program for dog owners with no interest in duck hunting. This two month program includes the teaching of the commands heel, sit, stay, kennel up and lay down. Your dog will be trained on all commands with and without the leash once the program is complete.
These are two beautiful dark golden retrievers. Jake is a fantastic dog and his accomplishments speak for themselves. Jake is trained 100% by amateurs who hold real jobs outside dog training. Lizzy is my 5 year old dog. She has never entered a field trail or hunt test, I was 16 when I got her and had neither time nor money for trials or hunt tests, but she is an excellent duck dog that is very smart, runs great marks, has a fantastic nose, and a great temperament. Jake has great field trial lines with many FC and AFC titles, while Lizzy has excellent hunt test lines with many GRHRCH, MH, and HRCH. These puppies will be the best of both worlds.

These types of puppies don't come around very often especially in the South.
