    The Arctic Bird Dog Association (ABDA) is holding its annual Novice / Puppy introductory class for people and their dogs interested in the basics of training for upland bird hunting and American Kennel Club hunting tests. Weekly classes will be scheduled beginning the week of April 8, 2019. Up to two sessions will be held indoors at Alyeska Canine Trainers, 549 International Airport Road, Anchorage.
     
    Pointers begin on Tuesday April 9th
    Flushers begin on Wednesday April 10th
     
    We’ll cover basic commands and obedience needed in the field. We’ll introduce basic training equipment and its uses, training sequences, methods and suggested resources for continued training. There will be separate classes and instructors for pointing breeds and spaniels. Following the classroom training there will be at least four outdoor training sessions. Outdoor session dates will be flexible, determined by instructor and participants. Total class length is six weeks.
     
    Pointing Breeds: Class members should have a good stiff collar on their dogs, a three to four foot leash, and a twenty-five foot or longer training lead or “check-cord”. Please bring a dog crate with cover or blanket for the indoor sessions.
     
    Spaniel & Retriever Breeds: Bring a leash and a pealess whistle. If you don't have a pealess whistle, look for an Acme 210-1/2 black whistle at Sportsman's Warehouse. They may also be available at Alaska Mill and Feed. Leashes are required. Also bring any retrieving article your dog is familiar with.
