Started Dogs

Our Kennel occasionally has a started/finished dog for sale, and we are always willing to take orders for a started/finished dog out of a specific breeding or upcoming litter. Many questions/concerns can arise about purchasing a started/finished dog. Our Kennel will attempt to answer any and all questions you may have. The following may address some of those questions.

1.) Pricing: Our pricing structure for started/finished dogs are our Rookie, Junior and Professional programs. All pricing below includes all costs our Kennel may encounter while your dog is with us (including but not limited to puppy price, food, veterinary expenses and birds). The price does not include shipping or transportation costs that the owner may encounter if he/she is not able to physically pick up his/her dog when the dog is ready to go home. (See Shipping.)

Rookie: 6-12 months of age ($4,000): Basic obedience, introduction to birds, started on retrieving drills. The dog will be ready to finish and fine tune his/her hunting skills under your direction.  This is NOT a finished gun dog at this point!

Junior: 12-18 months of age ($6,000): Rookie skills enhanced. In summary, the dog will be able to hunt with you, and generally will be prepared to compete for his/her Certified Pointing Labrador title.  Note; this price will not include trialing your dog for his/her Certified Pointing Retriever title, you must be enrolled in the Professional program to earn the title under our care.

Professional: 18-24+ months of age ($8,000): All of the above skills are enhanced and the dog will have his/her Certified Pointing Retriever title prior to pick up.  

Finished:  The dog will have his/her Certified Pointing Retriever title at this point.  After the final fee of $8,000 is paid the customer will then be transferred to a monthly invoice/contract with our trainers at their current rates and will continue training to the level desired by the customer.

2.) Deposit: The deposit for any of our three pricing structures is the full puppy price that our Kennel is charging. If you are getting a Rookie, the remaining balance is due at the time the dog is picked up. If you are getting a Junior dog, at 9 months of age a total of $4,000 must be paid and the remaining balance is due at the time the dog is picked up. If you are getting a Professional dog, at 9 months of age a total of $4,000 must be paid, at 12 months of age a total of $6,000 must be paid, and the remaining balance is due at the time the dog is picked up.  If you are getting a Finished dog, the same deposit/payment schedule is in place as a Professional dog, then you will be billed monthly per our trainers current rates.

Please contact our Kennel for other questions you may have and to schedule the breeding, color, and sex you desire for your started/finished dog.  Please note, due to our current extremely busy schedule (children's sports schedule), and kennel space, we will only be subconsulting this service out to our highly qualified trainers, and we will not be doing the training ourselves.
