The Best Arizona hunting dog trainers can not possibly get along without a training table of some sort. This is a great way to teach dog training obedience. A Retriever Training Table is used on a daily basis for all sorts of things. It is one of the most useful pieces of equipment in a gun dog trainer's arsenal, many of which aren't even directly related to any form of training. Nothing beats a well-trained flushing dog for exciting upland action on birds, water fowl, and small game. A Retriever, Spaniel, or Setter puppy can be introduced to the table when they're about eight weeks old and train with it daily, they quickly learn to feel at ease with it. From then on they will jump on the table without hesitation for various kinds of checkups such as cleaning and patching cuts, removing burrs, trimming or repairing broken toenails, and all sorts of other health and training matters where they are under total control. A retriever is a type of gun dog that retrieves game for a hunter. Generally Arizona gun-dogs are divided into three major classifications: retrievers, flushing spaniels, and pointing breeds. Retrievers were bred primarily to retrieve birds or other prey and return them to the hunter without damage. Although spaniels and some pointing breeds routinely retrieve game, and many retrievers are skilled in finding game, retrievers are distinguished in that non-slip retrieval is their primary function. As a result, retriever breeds are bred for soft mouths and a great willingness to please, learn, and obey. A soft mouth refers to the willingness of the dog to carry game in its mouth without biting into it. "Hard mouth" is a serious fault in an Arizona hunting dog and is one that is very difficult to correct. A hard-mouthed dog renders game unpresentable or at worst inedible. The Golden Retriever and Labrador's willingness to please and trainability are popular as hunting assistance dogs in Southern Arizona. Introduce them to the gun dog table at a young age because it does not associate it only with forcefetch or feel that getting on it is a punishment. An Arizona wants it to be an enjoyable place where the dogs also get scratched and brushed and where you can tell them what fine dogs they are. In addition it's good to have the dog at the hunter's level so you don't have to constantly bend over to examine or brush him or put dog bumpers in his mouth when teaching him to "hold."
There are other advantages to a dog training table that most people don't immediately appreciate. For one, the table really develops a self-confidence, self-reliance, and confidence in you (which ultimately shows itself in the form of compliance with your commands). Once Arizona gun dogs are familiar with the training table and being attached to the overhead cable, all hunting dog breeds become quite proud of themselves as they strut up and down. As they gain confidence on the table, they become bolder and learn to succeed. It also has a way of transforming an un-manageable outlaw, making him more willing to yield to your training - the table has a way of "leveling the playing field." And all of this happens with nothing more than getting him accustomed to being on the retriever training table.
In order to work properly as a gun dog, a retriever should be trained to perform the following tasks:
Typically any dog breed can be used as a hunting retriever if trained to do so. The Boykin Spaniel is most often worked as a non-slip retriever, though it originated as a duck and turkey flushing dog. Many would classify it as a flushing spaniel rather than as a retriever. Similarly, the American Water Spaniel could be listed in either category. Dogs such as the Poodle, which are rarely used in hunting today, are difficult to classify, but their traditional job was that of a retriever. Other Arizona gun dogs include; American Water Spaniel, Barbet, Chesapeake Bay, Labrador, German Water Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Poodle, Spanish Water Dog.
