Club Training

April 6, 2019 @ 7:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Training usually begins at 7:00 a.m. and concludes when all dogs have finished training for the day (usually mid to late morning). As the temperature rises during the summer training may begin earlier when it is cooler.

Handlers meet in the parking lot and then separate into different groups. You may work on one or all areas.  That is up to you.


Please send bird orders to Kirk by Thursday night prior to training day.  No order = no birds.


The following list are items you will need during training:

  • Plenty of water and a bowl.  In the summer months you will want enough water to cool your dog off after running.  Consider collecting gallon jugs or a 5 gallon water carrier used for camping.
  • Water bottle with squirt cap to carry in the field for your dog.
  • Slip lead or collar and lead.
  • Kennel /crate in vehicle or short tie out stake.
  • Other training gear you may want to use such as bumpers, tennis balls, whistle, etc. The club has some equipment available like retrieving bumpers and a zinger winger.


Bring items that will make your training session comfortable for you.  The list below is just a suggestion. We are several miles from modern conveniences.  The nearest Casey’s is in Bondurant or Mitchellville so plan accordingly.

  • State of Iowa Hunting Licenses (Required by the state of Iowa because we are training dogs on public grounds.)
  • Blaze orange hat and shirt or vest
  • Eye and Hearing protection – We use live ammunition.
  • Water  for drinking and a quick clean up
  • Paper towels
  • Snacks
  • Cold gear and/or rain gear
  • Shade tent in the summer  (There are no trees to park under.)
  • Good boots. Waterproof boots are recommended in wet conditions.
  • Sunscreen, bug spray, tick repellent
  • Folding chair/ camp chair
  • Bird Crate
  • Garbage bags to bring home birds and/or garbage
  • Camera or video recorder if you want your run recorded.
