Our Training Approach
Our selected training program is limited to only several dogs at a time. This allows for each dog to obtain the most information as possible during their stay here at Valley Way. A low stress, temperature controlled environment allows your dog the best living quarters. All of this is achieved in a E-Collar free evironment.
Every Monday the owner will receive a daily report log for the previous week of training. This allows for you the owner to stay fully updated with what your dog is learning/struggling on at that time. This is highly beneficial for owners who are not located in Huntsville and unable to visit on a regular basis.

Individual Training Sessions/ Puppy Kick Start
Obedience / Adventure Dog Program
First and foremost your dog is your family and companion. This program is geared to the owner that requires a obedient and well mannered dog regardless of scenario. The ability of a dog to spend countless of hours at the farm or hiking but come home and switch to a calm and collected demeanor in your home is an absolute must.
A Boykin Spaniel has an extremely high energy level that needs to be contained and controlled when required. That is what makes this program perfect for the active adventurous family.
Gun Dog Training
This program accepts its students between the age of 6-8 months of age, dependent upon availability and personality. It highlights all of the core values with the basic values of obedience such as sit, here, place, and kennel.
Once the student has achieved the basics, then we incorporate various types of hunting scenarios through progressive learning. Starting with the basic building blocks such as introduction to live birds and gunfire then working our way up to lining blinds, handling and multiple marks.
The end goal for out gun dogs when the come home is the ability to spend countless of hours in the field then come home and sit fireside with you and your family.
Individual Sessions/Puppy Kick Start
So you have finally got your puppy and you cannot wait to starter training him/her but you have no idea where to start. This program is ideal for the owner who plans to do the training but they need a little "Kickstart" first.
This 4 hour class allows for you to gain the knowledge and template to follow in training your puppy without the commitment of sending your dog off for a few months. The age of your dog does not matter to attend the class and if you do not have your puppy yet then one will be provided for the drills.
