Field Training for flushing, retrieving, and pointing breeds.

Here is a legacy of four decades of quality gundog training for all breeds. Graduates have included field champions and master hunters, but more importantly, hundreds of lifetime companions that owners have been proud to bring into the field or blind. 

Invest $1,200/month to produce a top quality gun dog. Tuition is all inclusive - boarding, food, exercise, birds, ammo, five field sessions each week, daily obedience lessons.

Have your dog quartering in gun range, trailing cripples, obedient to commands, retrieving to hand, called off missed birds, experienced in both upland and water work.


Gun dog training of all breeds is available. Morgan Haglin is responsible for the training program of each individual dog. He brings out the best from each one.      


If your dog is at Pine Shadows for an extended time, you are encouraged to attend training sessions as often as possible to learn how to best handle your dog.  
Perhaps you and your pup can schedule regular sessions with Morgan, once a week or more often. Yes, there is  "homework" also.


Private sessions with owner and dog or family and dog are popular. Length of training and skill level desired are determined between you, the owner, and Morgan.

Training advice and solutions to problems are always available.   


Pine Shadows also prepares English Springer Spaniels for field trials and hunt tests. Morgan can professionally handle your springer or you can do it yourself with expert training from him.
