Sand Hill Retrievers

Hutchinson, Kansas

Sand Hill Retrievers was built on a dream.  Working with labs is a passion of Charlie's.  It's never considered work, if you do what you love.  Sand Hill Retrievers is a great option for new pups, advance training, or even retraining to correct problems that are causing you, or your dog, trouble. Contact me for peace of mind for you and your dog.


About Me

Love at First Sight

I had always been a big deer hunter.  That was the case until I was introduced to waterfowl hunting and fell in love with the working dogs.  The way the handlers and dogs worked together amazed me.  After my first day I became almost obsessed with how the dogs and handlers trained and how the whole process worked.  I watch videos, DVDs, YouTube, read articles, follow the pros and do everything I can to learn how to be a better trainer every day. 


My Services


Level 1 Training

***If your animal needs help with a specific physical or behavioral issue, Behavior Consulting with Sand Hill Retrievers may be a great option for you.

Level 2 Training

I’ve been developing and perfecting since I started working with labs in 2012. I work closely with each one of my clients and their animals to implement my proven problem solving process. I know you have a busy schedule, so I will customize a plan that suits your lifestyle.

Level 3 Training

Your lab has plenty of potential to learn and understand commands, and my techniques will lay the foundation for you to build upon. I combine your needs and wants with the natural attributes of your hunting dog.

Puppy Finding

If you need help finding a great pup, I can help you find one that meets your wants and needs.
