Our EARLY STARTS PUPPY PROGRAM are for individuals that want a great hunting partner and happy companion….but do not have the time or know how to properly mold that pup into a working gun dog.  We here at AWA Gun Dogs have the “know how” to get that little pup where he or she needs to be.  The first few months of life for that young retriever are absolutely critical on the way to becoming an adult.


Beginning in October, we will accept 2-3 pups starting at the 8 week old stage (~2 months old or older).  The program will run from the months of October through January.  The pup will be allowed to spend some time with their owner and then return to start BASIC TRAINING in March when they are approximately 6-7 months of age.

COST: 450.00 per month includes feeding (Pro Plan Sport Performance 30/20 All Life Stages). We require a 200.00 deposit to enroll (I accept ). This deposit will be applied towards first month….remaining 250.00 will be due at drop off – ABSOLUTELY NO ACCEPTIONS. All pups are required to be current on all shots and submit Vet records and be on file with our Vet before we can take them – ABSOLUTELY NO ACCEPTIONS.
