DOG TRAINING

Bird Dog Training

D4 Kennels is dedicated to training and developing dogs to their highest level so owners can have a highly trained, and well mannered dog to hunt over for many years. D4K is committed to training each dog to exceed owner expectations. At D4K, we take a limited number of client dogs so it allows us the time to work with each dog individually, maintain a clean and sanitary kennel, and care for each dog personally.

Our training fee is $850 per month. We feed Purina Pro Plan Sport 30/20 which is included in our training fee. We pride ourselves in maintaining a clean facility, and kennels are washed and sanitized every day. Your dog will be living in our 5×10 kennels with heat & AC.
