Colorado Retriever Trainer


New member
I was just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a retriever trainer in Colorado. I live in the Frederick/Longmont area and have a Golden Retriever that my wife and I would like to have trained for both waterfowl and upland.

Thanks for any responses! :thumbsup:
I like Gary Ruppel, he lives a little North of Kiowa. He trained two of my dogs and I have seen him work with other dogs when I worked at a sporting clays range he trained dogs at.

Thanks for the quick response! Does he have a website? I can't find any information on him other than Linken. Do you know how much he charges for his service?

Not sure how far of a drive it is but you might check out Standing Stone Kennels in KS. They are located in the NW part of the state.

A friend of my had his 5 year old lab trained there and she came out great. I just bought a GSP from them and she has been great so far.

Ethan will take good care of you and you'll end up with a great dog.

*edit* I happend to check it's about 5 hours from you to Norton, KS.
