Bird Dog Training Schools


The George Hickox School of Bird Dog Training is a three day comprehensive in depth program.  George’s goal is to teach beginning owners as well as more experienced trainers how to train their dogs to reach higher levels.


The three day course will begin with a power point covering canine behavior and how dogs learn. The rest of the time will be a blend of yard training and field drills with plenty of live birds.  All owners will have hands on with their dogs so they can complete the training program when they leave with confidence and knowledge This is a “Train the Trainer” course with owners’ dogs getting lots of work.  Hunting in control, developing proper bird manners, the proper introduction to avoidance training and the e-collar, and how to incorporate clicker trainer into the process are covered in depth.  All owners and trainers will  leave with the knowledge and understanding of how to continue the training with a program specifically tailored to their dogs and the type of hunting they will do.



For over two decades hunters, trainers, and dog owners have benefited from George’s training methods and his ability to impart this knowledge to trainers and owners at every level in a clear and concise manner.
