Church Point in South Louisiana, affords us endless opportunity to prepare your dog for a
wealth of hunting experience. The Johnson team has taken several of their students to superior titles, such as
Grand Hunting Retriever Champions (GRHRCH) and Hunting Retriever Champions
(HRCH). They have also seen students into elite groups such as the Hunting
Retriever Club's (UKC affiliate) 500 point club. With their guidance, their
students have earned passes at all levels of AKC and HRC events and top awards in the Gueydan Duck Festival, including
first places in the Opened/Finished Division: HRCH UH Pachanga Daphne Choc Thunder "Jenga"
(2005) and HRCH Lucky's Magic "Star" (2008); also, first place in the
Seasoned Division (2007).
If you have an interest in improving your hunting companion, attaining field excellence with your retriever, or perhaps are looking to securing a new retriever
as a field companion, you've found the right place. We support owners and their
companions; not just one or the other. In addition to gun dog and hunt test training, clients can take advantage of expert obedience
training and boarding services. We are here and stand ready to support you and
