Dog Training

From pup to pro

Dog owners appreciate the member benefit of year-round dog training privileges on Kiowa Creek property. Your dog will be thrilled to seek out birds you have set in our 35-acre shooting field, or if you prefer, we can set some or all of them for you at the beginning of your session. This field allows you to simulate an actual hunt by shooting over your dog. 

Alternatively, our 10-acre non-shooting field is the perfect spot to expose your pup to the terrain, sights, sounds, and scents associated with bird hunting or to simply allow him to burn off some extra energy. This field does not require purchase of any birds, but don’t be surprised if your dog still manages to sniff out one or two.

"This place is a haven"

“I was completely new to upland game and hunting in general. The folks at Kiowa made me feel at home right away and steered me in the direction of making this a full time passion. My dogs learned to hunt on their training fields and now both are NAVHDA and AKC hunting titled. Their game fields are amazing and immersive. There is a guy Dennis who is a guide/dog trainer – not only will he take you on a great trip, but he is willing to teach you what to look for and give dog training tips during your hunt. This place is a haven and is only about 30 mins away from the metro area.”

"Thank you, Kiowa Creek"

I have been a member of Kiowa Creek Sporting Club for many years enjoying the sporting clays and the bird hunting. However, it was not until last year that I was able to take advantage of an awesome benefit; their dog training field. I worked my new Springer Spaniel puppy Max for most of the year and Kiowa gave us the option of setting out our own birds or they would do it for us. They go to great efforts to accommodate the dates and times for the field usage. The quality of the bird training field contributed to Max now being an outstanding bird dog!

 Thank you, Kiowa Creek.”

FAQ: Dog Training

Card View List View
How does use of the dog training field differ from a hunt at Kiowa Creek?

Hunts utilize a 100-acre field and are 3 hours long with up to 5 hunters per field, with each person having a 5-bird minimum. The dog training field is a 35-acre field that is booked for 2 hours with a 5-bird minimum total and allows a maximum of 2 guns in the field. Hunts require a guide; the dog training field does not.

What are the requirements for dog training?

You must be a member of Kiowa Creek Sporting Club.

Proof of hunter safety is required for anyone carrying a gun in the shooting field. Please see the hunter safety section of our Hunting FAQ for more information.

Every person in the field must wear a blaze orange hat as a minimum.

Shot size can be no larger than 6 (6 and 7.5 are okay; 5 is too big). No magnum or high brass loads are allowed. (Max 1-1/8 oz. load, 2-3/4” shell, 3-1/4 dram.)

Please contact us at least 24 hours in advance if you will not be able to make your training field appointment.

Do I need a reservation for dog training?

Yes. Field availability varies, so please book with as much advance notice as possible.

How are the birds released?

When you make your reservation, you will be asked whether you wish to set your own birds or have someone set them for you. If we set your birds, we can set all or some of them (per your preference) at the beginning of your session. We are glad to show you how to set birds yourself so that you can stagger their release, as we do not accompany you and do not return to your training session. If you are new to the training field, our staff will show you the boundaries of the field, for your reference.

Can I bring a friend?

You may have up to two guns in the shooting field. You can also bring someone to walk along, or you may choose to have someone else shoot while you handle your dog. Everyone shooting must have hunter safety, and everyone in the field must wear blaze orange.

What should I bring with me to the dog training field?

Please remember to bring water for your dog. Bring any desired training aids, such as check cords, e-collars, or whistles. You may also bring your own bird launchers and starter pistols for use in either field. No shotguns are allowed in the non-shooting field.
