the fall season ends and the snow begins it is impossible to train
dogs in Northeast Ohio. Every year I send my two dogs down to
George for winter training and conditioning where his facilities
are second to none. A few months later they return healthy,
covered with new muscle and happy as clams. The result: Three
Shooting Dog of the Year awards since 2007.
do you say totally dedicated and committed? That is easy -
George Hickox! If you don’t believe this just attend one
of George’s seminars or have him do private consulting for you.
We have done both and could not be more satisfied. George
has a passion for and a dedication to dog training that is evident
from the moment you meet him. In his seminars you will be
exposed not only to problems you may be having with your own dog
but also to problems you will see in other dogs. Whether you are a
bird dog trainer with twenty years of experience or a novice, you
need to attend but you must be prepared to leave all of your
pre-conceived ideas at home and listen with an open and receptive
mind. While his is not the only training method out there, his
produces a bold and confident dog that enjoys what he is doing and
an owner who has the tools, understanding and confidence to
maintain that dog.
You will come away from George’s seminar or private consultation
with the benefit of years of work and thousands of hours of
experience over which have evolved new and innovative methods of
training. This is because George is constantly seeking out
and assessing new ideas, his own and those of others, in order to
find better and more effective ways to improve both your dog’s
performance and your performance as a trainer. George has no
hesitation in saying that he was wrong if a better or more
productive method comes along. He is very quick to say that
when you find a good idea, steal it! His are, however, the
methods that work and they will work for you if consistently
applied. We feel that private consultations gave us more bang for
the buck. You have George’s undivided attention for yourself and
your dog (or dogs) for the entire time. George wants every dog and
every dog owner to be the very best that they can be.
If you enjoy watching a masterful
professional at work, you will NOT be disappointed.
If you can appreciate the insights and observations gleaned from a
lifetime of experiences, you will NOT be disappointed. And
last but not least, If you are truly interested in learning from
someone totally dedicated to dog training and committed to making
you and your dog the very best that you can possibly be, then you
will NOT be disappointed! ~Wiley and Nancy McCall
recently had the pleasure of spending two days with George Hickox
for a private seminar. From the time George arrived at my home to
the days we spent in the field, I can whole-heartedly say that it
was the single best training experience of my life. The way he
broke down the communication barrier between my dog and I was
truly amazing! I plan on seeing George at least once a year to
continue our training. Whether you are just starting your Gundog
training or looking to take it to the next level I would recommend
George Hickox without
exception. ~Darren Beylouni,
results far exceeded our expectations!
I was excited to hear the
shooting chairmen of our hunting club, also my husband, had
scheduled The George Hickox training classes at our club.
Consecutively run, it was four days for pointing dogs and then
four days for flushing dogs.
Having previously attended
a George Hickox training class about four years earlier with our
English Setter Roxi I was eager to sign up again with our new pup
Remy. The format was similar to what I remembered, but
the new training techniques we were introduced to were brilliant.
With the clicker and positive reinforcement training our dogs were
upbeat and excited about learning. The speed in which they
learned and their cooperation was amazing. We were also
introduced to new E-collar techniques which complement the
positive reinforcement training.
Since the class we are
following the individual assessment training outline we received.
Even our 11 year old setter wants to get in on the “fun”. The
George Hickox training class reviews from our club members in our
class have been extraordinary. They loved the individual
attention, group interaction and support, the training mythology
and they all want to know “When can we schedule the next
We’ve also set up dog training equipment
at our club house so we can continue our training as a group.
