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...

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
