About Us

Both my wife and I were born and raised in Oregon and enjoy all that the outdoors have to offer us, not only in the Klamath Basin, but also surrounding states and Canada.  Whether we are hosting clients or hunting with friends, with nearly six months of water fowl hunting available to us, we understand what it takes to make a great gun dog.

At Full Throttle Retrievers we are committed to producing the very best trained gun dogs available. I have had the opportunity to raise and train puppies out of some of the most successful field trial dogs known today. 

For us dog training is not only a profession, but a passion that carries into everything we do. It’s teaching a 7 week old puppy the beginnings of basic obedience and then watching their first retrieve while hunting a frozen or flooded field laying in a duck blind, calling in ducks and geese over spreads of decoys with great friends and family. 

Dogs that have left our facility reach from Alaska to Southern California, Oregon to New Jersey and countless states in between.  We take pleasure in receiving updates and stories and seeing photos from clients, who have become friends and whose dogs have gone on to a successful hunting career and family life.  

We believe that all dogs should be looked at as part of the family, so all dogs going through our program are raised in our home.

Full Throttle Retrievers’ approach to dog training is to observe the dog and apply the techniques that advance each dog at a pace they are comfortable learning at.  A dog’s ability to learn always dictates the rate at which the level of training advances. 

We do not believe in ‘pushing’ or ‘forcing’ a dog into learning at a faster speed than they are able to absorb.  The ability to read a dog is critical to moving onto the next step in training – a firm direction, a steady course and a calm approach is how we reach our goal of training your dog to suit your individual needs.

Thank you for visiting Full Throttle Retriever’s web site, where each dog that successfully completes our training program, is guaranteed that they enter your home a better citizen and companion for hunting and as part of your family.  We know that Full Throttle Retrievers’ approach to dog training is what you are looking for in a trainer and facility.

Train Smarter, not Harder….
