Dog Training: The late
Bubber Cameron trained dogs all his life and has handed down to his
sons, Rush and John, his experience with gun dogs. It is our belief
that using lots of birds and repetition makes a bird dog enjoy his job.
We can do this because the strongest birds will survive and establish
themselves on our hunting grounds and will ehance our hunts during
The ample space and plentiful birds year 'round make for a perfect
situation to guarantee that a dog in training has maximum field
conditioning and bird exposure.
The ability to work your dogs year ' round is provided by the number of
Artesian wells on the property. With plenty of water, dogs can get the
opportunity to cover large areas.
Facilities are available for both boarding and conditioning dogs. Puppy Training: Our puppy
program has had articles in Gun Dog Magazine and many newspapers. This
program has made some of the finest bird dogs for us as well as many
of our customers. This program takes puppies straight from weaning to a
pen in the middle of the preserve by themselves. Then every day we take
birds out to them and let them chase them around where we usually have
coveys on the grounds. By doing this, everything that is natural comes
out in the pup. This manner of training is far too expensive for most
trainers due to the expense of the amount of birds that are used. But
to our preserve, it helps to establish coveys on the hunting grounds
with the strongest birds released.
