Oregon -(Ammoland.com)- Get the most out of the dog you have or learn what to look for in a new hunting dog.
Join ODFW and several dog hunting clubs at the Queener Ridge Pheasant Company for a weekend workshop near Scio on July 25-26.
The workshop will cover topics including obedience, tracking, water, field and bird work, and more. On Sunday, instructors will take participants’ dogs through some training activities. Participants without dogs can observe.
This family-friendly workshop is open to adults, couples, and families with children who are at least 9-years-old. The cost is $62 for adults and $22 for children age 9-17. The workshop begins at 7:30 a.m. each day.
“Training begins with obedience and ends with a dog that is eager to work with you,” said Mark Newell, ODFW outdoor skills coordinator. “We’ll show you how to get started and what these amazing dogs are capable of with the right positive training.”
This event is co-hosted by the Owen Denny chapter of Pheasants Forever, Queener Ridge Pheasant Company, the Green Valley Hunting and Retrieving Club and ODFW. Primitive camping (no water or electricity hookups) is available.
