Our training program here at Vallivue Sporting Dogs is Gun Dog and basic obedience with input from the owner on what their training goals are for their dog. Puppies are started with a goal in mind of a finished dog. What you teach at a young age will be expanded onto a finished dog. Gene has a passion for training dogs, and you can tell it by the way the dogs react to him. They are always looking forward to seeing him even if they had a difficult training session. Gene has a way with dogs that is firm but gentle. He has the patience so the dogs can take their time at learning.  They clearly adore Gene. Dogs should love their jobs, and the only way to do that is with a successful training program developed over the years.
