For Training or to Book a Hunt
"Celty" ( 1 year old WPG)
A great day in the field. Celty did well, still a work in progress. Thanks so much for making her a great hunting dog.
Gun Dogs "R" Us is a full time gun dog resource center owned and operated by Rick and Kathy Fitzpatrick.
Services offered include: Gun Dog training; specializing in the pointing and flushing breeds for the upland foot hunter. We also offer Guided Hunts, Basic Obedience Training, Kennel Boarding, Top Line German Shorthaired Pointers and on occasion will have Started or Finished Dogs for sale. They have also recently added a Pro-Shop offering e-collars from the biggest name brands in the industry.
Rick volunteers his time with the Metro Denver Pheasants Forever Chapter and is a member of the Sporting Dog Club of Colorado.
Gun Dogs R Us has trained many, many dogs over the years and several have gone on to be professional guide dogs for some upscale wingshooting lodges with Orvis and Cabelas endorsements.
To keep his dogs in top shape in the off season, Rick runs his dogs in Field Trials and AKC Hunt Tests.
Whether it be a pointer or flusher, Rick uses a soft touch approach to bring out the natural ability of the dog to work for the handler in real life hunting situations.
Rick believes communication with the client is a key ingredient that makes his business work. When you call, he will always get back to you within 24 hours.
He understands the dogs entering his program are not just working dogs, but are beloved pets and members of your family and will be treated just as he treats his own.
Training dogs are housed in a clean, climate controlled kennel environment. Each dog has his/her own kennel.
TOP 8 REASONS TO CHOOSE GUN DOGS 'R' US
#8. We are an AKC inspected facility.
#7. We are a state licensed & state inspected facility.
#6. By taking on a limited number of dogs I have set myself apart from some of the other kennels/trainers with my *personalized attention to each and every dog*, I do not take on 20-30 dogs! I want to make sure I can spend quality time with your pup on a daily basis.
#5. I guarantee my work....Should your pup not be field worthy after 90 days, I will continue to work with the pup for an additional 30 days at no charge! (*stipulations apply)
#4. I encourage owners to come out and visit anytime (by appointment). You are welcome to watch and even get involved in the training sessions.
#3. Training you the handler is as important as training the dog. I will be glad to spend as much time with you as needed so you understand fully on how to work with your dog!
#2. I do all of the basic training right on my property. As your pup progresses I utilize several different local hunt clubs. With access to over 90,000 acres your pup will be exposed to all the varying terrain he/she may encounter in the field.
1. The main reason to choose Gun Dogs 'R' Us is RESULTS. My client's are more than willing to share their experiences after going through my training! Please take a moment to check out the testimonials page.
