About Training

If you're training a new gun dog, be sure to have the best equipment and supplies on hand. At SCHEELS, we have a varied selection of bird dog training equipment. You'll find an assortment of training dummies, dog whistles and bells, scents and scent injectors, training books and training kits for different kinds of prey. These highly effective products come from the best names in the business of hunting dog training — D.T. Systems, Dokken, DogBone, Lucky Dog and our own SCHEELS Outfitters brand. Using these essential tools with the right kind of training, you'll see great success with your faithful retriever.

Tips for effective gun dog training include shorter training sessions for young pups (with just a few repetitions per day), developing their confidence from an early age and not rushing them into actual hunting environments before they're ready. Successful training begins with an introduction to basic bird dog skills in a safe, controlled environment.
