At Ryglen Gundogs we use a low force, no ecollar methodology. Largely based on training techniques that Jay has learned through the years at Wildrose Kennels and spending time in the UK and adapting it to English Cocker Spaniels. We want the dogs to do their work because they enjoy it and trust their handlers. It has to be a team approach with the handler being the leader of the team.

Also, at Rylgen Gundogs we only train the dogs that are breed at our facility. That way we know exactly what it is that we are producing and know if we want to make changes to our breedings. Also, by training only our own dogs we can make OUR customers the priority in the dogs were training. However, training space is limited so if you are interested in us training your dog please contact us as soon as possible.
