The Philosophy of Cannon River Kennel’s Trainers

Training dogs is not only what we do for a living, it also is our passion. We truly enjoy watching dogs learn throughout each program we offer. Our "hands on" style of training has been taught to us by top professionals in the field. Through our years of experience we understand that no two dogs are alike and that each dog must be treated that way when going through our programs. An important part of our training includes the participation of the owner with their dog. One on one lessons are included with all of our programs to ensure your pet responds to you as expected.

About the Trainers


A lifetime of hunting experience along with a combined 22 years of dog training gives this team of trainers at Cannon River Kennels the expertise needed to turn your dog into one you can be proud of. In addition to training hundreds of hunting companions, we have trained dogs for premier pheasant hunting lodges in South Dakota along with duck hunting lodges in Mississippi and Mexico. Our experiences include both hunting and guiding upland and waterfowl game from Canada to South America. This combination of hunting, training and guiding gives this team the qualifications needed to ensure your dog gets the custom training you desire. Let us turn your pet into a hunting dog that will truly be a joy to hunt with.
