Gun Dog Training


Kennel owner/operator Don Arsenault has gained a reputation in the field of hunting dogs as a top-notch trainer, with a proven knack of getting the most from his students. 

Experience,  technique & patience combine to produce a well-behaved,  well-trained working dog.  Much of the animal's cooperation comes from his desire to please and be praised by his master, and Don knows how to instill that willing-ness, that game, can-do, WILL-DO attitude in hunting dogs of various breeds.

There are several ponds nearby, situated on 220 acres of prime Woodcock and Grouse habitat, perfect for the training of Pointing Dogs and Retrievers.  Ruff Country's rolling property provides a good range of environments and terrain to train and condition your hunter for flexibility and endurance.

Fresh country air, regular exercise and our recommended feeding regime will ensure he is in great condition at 'graduation time'.
