Dog Training at Key Cities Conservation Club

Conservation of harvested game is improved when hunters use well trained hunting dogs. Organized dog training groups meet from April through August when some of our members come together to train their pointers, flushers and retrievers. The training is tailored for dogs and handlers of all skill levels and abilities. Experienced dog handlers are available to mentor less experience handlers as requested.

See the club calendar for meeting times.

All members who participate in dog training on club property must adhere to Key Cities Conservation Club Dog Training Participation Rules, Etiquette & Safety Policy.

All members shall be responsible to pickup all garbage. This includes the pickup of shotshell casings and all used birds.
BIRD CARCASSES SHALL NOT BE DISPOSED OF ON THE CLUB'S PROPERTY. 


Our 4 acre lake is used for water retrieves as well as NAVHDA duck search training. It's shape makes it ideal for initial water introduction through high level blind retrieve training.

We're in the process of developing a 12 acre field with short prairie grasses and forbs that will be well suited for field training of our members' hunting dogs.



We have a pigeon house where we raise homing pigeons to be used for bird dog training.  In addition, we use this house to hold feral pigeons that can be purchased by our members.
