WANT A RELIABLE RETRIEVER FOR HUNTING OR POLICE WORK?
There’s much more to developing a dog’s abilities than coaxing it to do tricks for treats, dictating commands on cue, or agitating your animal with the latest tools.
If you don’t build up your dog’s confidence at each phase of training, you can break its drive and limit its potential. You also need to correct your working companion at the right time, using the right stimulus.
You can be left with an expensive dog that fails when under pressure, doesn’t detect when distracted, or doesn’t hunt (nothing is more embarrassing when your dog won’t bring back your bird when you’re in front of your buddies or ends up biting someone he’s not supposed to!)
TRAINER WITH TRACK RECORD
You need a trainer you can trust. One with a track record of titling dogs in various sporting events… a Handler who’s turned out dogs which have successfully worked the streets for law enforcement agencies… and a Helper who encourages their dogs to be part of the family when they’re not “working.”
CERTIFIED. RELIABLE. TRUSTED.
My name is Eric Bakey, and I’m the most disciplined dog handler in Austin. I have military working dog experience, trained & certified with multiple law enforcement agencies & have competed in dog sports for the last 10 years. I want to help you achieve your goals for your working dog.
YOUR DOG = THE REAL MVP
Whether that’s helping your dog track like a Scud missile with scent/nose work, developing a dual purpose “gentleman’s gundog” who will be the MVP of your next hunt, or ensuring you can take your canine companion with you anywhere…
A HUMBLE LEADER
Many dog trainers think they know everything about dogs – and one look at yours, and they’ve got it all figured out. I am a lifelong learner, humble leader, and love figuring out what each dog can teach me about what works and what doesn’t.
You CAN have a working dog that lives life outside of his kennel that you can trust around other people & pets… a dog you can let your kids play with, and at the sound of a simple command – light up to bring back birds, track wounded game, or identify controlled substances.
It’s all about well-rounded training, a constantly expanding body of knowledge, and a humorous sense of proportion when setting up scenarios for success.
