Quichapa Kennels is the perfect location to get your duck dog ready for this waterfowl season. Located on the shores of Quichapa lake, all waterfowl dogs get daily swimming and retrieving exercises. Your dog will receive training with live and dead birds to get the repetition they need to be confident in the field. After training, all dogs will be field ready and steady to name. This means no more breaking early from the blind! Here at the kennel we have the time and patience to give you the professional duck dog you have always wanted.

Here at Quichapa we also offer advanced waterfowl training courses. These courses are available upon request and will take additional training time. Advanced waterfowl training includes whistle commands and blind retrieves.

As avid outdoorsman here at Quichapa Kennels, we also offer special gun-dog packages. These packages include Upland bird dog training, Waterfowl training, and Shed (Antler) dog training. Each training package is one month long to ensure your hunting partner gets the repetition they need to provide success in the field.

We require that all hunting dogs go through the one-month obedience program prior to their hunting training. This allows the dog to have a solid foundation before they begin bird or shed dog training.
