The Wildrose Way

Wildrose specializes in producing classic British Labrador hunting and adventure companions… The Gentleman’s Gundog.. .a dog of duality prepared to go anywhere, any time for any type of wingshooting or outside adventure. These are dogs that truly complement the families’ sporting lifestyle.

The Wildrose training processes are designed to create a positive, productive relationship between the gundog and the handler by establishing clear expectations for the retriever’s calm behavior and performance, as well as, a strong bond between the two. Our balanced methods utilize positive habit formation to entrench essential behaviors such as ease of handle, gamefinding ability and compatibility.
