Trainer Prices

4 posts in this topic

I plan to do more specific research on the subject, but I was curious about general prices. My 3 year old Griffon has a few areas that need polishing. I was considering sending him to a professional for a few months this summer. Work load this summer will leave me very little time for training and I really want him to take that next step as a hunter.

Here is the list that needs polishing:

1) Steady to flush and shoot

2) Duck retrieves through decoys

3) Tracking on command

If I sent him to a trainer for 2-3 months, what would an average price tag be? Not looking for price quotes, just a ball park idea of the costs.

Thanks.

I have been working my 10 month Griffon at Pine shadows in Brainerd MN and am very pleased with the whole program... Morgan and Mark work with all breeds both retrievers and pointers even though they breed springers...

Thanks for the info, but I should clarify. I am not looking for any trainer names. I am just curious on a ball park figure on what it would cost to send my dog to a good trainer for 2 or 3 months. What is an average cost per month? $500? $1000? Does that include birds?

I have never used a trainer, so I do not have the slightest idea on the cost.

Thanks.

Around $800 to $850 per month would be normal and that includes boarding and birds...

I hope this helps.. Most good breeders/trainers post thier prices on their we sites..

I hope this helps...

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
