What we do:

Beginning with the basic tenants of training, including obedience, force training, marking and handling, Don teaches each dog to maximize their ability. Some dogs are destined to be good gun dogs; others are destined to be National Field Champions. Rising Sun Retrievers will help your dog be the best he can be. The goals each client has for their “individual dog” are assessed and strived for.

RSR's Client Handling Program

I feel it is important clients know and understand not only their own dog, but all dogs. For this reason, all clients are coached in training and handling. Clients run not only their own dog but multiple dogs when training at Rising Sun Retrievers. We train the handler, not just the dog.

Training Facilities

Located in Charlo, Montana in the beautiful Mission Valley; Rising Sun Retrievers has a 24 dog kennel / training facility complete with technical ponds, terrain and pattern work sites. RSR has access to hundreds of acres of ponds, fields, terrain, and constructed training grounds, including wildlife refuge areas. Visit the Training Facilities page.
