WASSOOKEAG RETRIEVERS in Dixmont, Maine offers professional custom training programs to a limited number of retrievers. The level of care and service we offer each retriever is unsurpassed.

After 10 years of full-time training year round, we are scaling back on our training programs to make more time for training and working our own retrievers. We will continue to offer PRIVATE LESSONS where we'll work with you and your dog on an individual basis. Occasional GROUP CLASSES are also available.

We use a positive, motivational method of teaching in a pleasant environment. Limited enrollment ensures your retriever will reach it's fullest potential in a timely manner.

The focus of our programs includes:
RETRIEVER TRAINING
- Basic Gun Dog Training
- AKC Hunt Test Training & Handling
- Working Certificate (WC/I/X) Training
- Pre-Season Tune-Ups for Upland and
Waterfowl Hunting

Classes at WASSOOKEAG are conducted by Dave Robichaud - an avid waterfowler and Professional Retriever Trainer. The Robichauds have earned over 100 Hunt Test and Obedience titles on Retrievers since 1991. Our classes are six weeks long, fun, informative and perfect for getting your Retriever Puppy or Young Dog started on his retrieving skills under professional guidance. These classes are designed around the participants and focus on beginner and intermediate level retrieving skills on land and water to prepare for next hunting season or AKC hunt testing.

Whether your goal is to have a proficient duck hunting companion, hunt test dog or obedient family pet, Wassookeag Retrievers of ME will be happy to work with you.
We will evaluate your retriever free of charge and then design a custom program based on his individual temperament and your personal goals.
