Miller Gun Dogs
Whether you are looking for a trainer to develop your dog into an excellent waterfowl retriever, a great upland dog, or both, you'll receive superior training from Miller Gun Dogs with our outstanding professional gun dog training programs and boarding services. We offer a number of different programs and can customize your dog's training to fit the type of hunting that you enjoy. In addition, we provide a puppy program to go along with our more advanced training programs for those who have younger retrievers. To learn more about the details of each of our programs, please see our Retriever Training page.
We have a litter of Black and Yellow Pups arriving soon!Are you interested in purchasing a Trained Retriever? We offer options for dogs who have successfully finished different stages of our training programs. Most of our dogs have been in our program since they were weaned, being raised at Miller Gun Dogs. We offer many different levels and ages of trained dogs.
- Started Pups
- Have their obedience training and will have been introduced to birds, the gun, and water (season permitting).
- Started Dogs
- Same training as the started pups, but also go on to be force-fetched and collar-conditioned. They will also have had the opportunity to see and retrieve marks on land and water.
- Finished Dogs
- Will then go on to learn how to be handled to blind retrieves and to retrieve multiple marks.
I got my dog earlier than usual due to my work schedule and vacation time. Even at 6 weeks, she showed traits of being easily trainable. In fact she was house-broken in 10 days, without a single “mistake” with her recently turned 1. I’ve had 4 Labs, and she is without a doubt, the most obedient hunting dog I’ve ever had. She was sent off early for field training, and was able to come home early as well. She is an excellent field dog. She is extremely energetic (and quite powerful for her leaner build) and requires at least an hour of exercise when I get home from work, but she minds so well that I’m able to walk her off the leash in a very busy area of Dallas without her ever running off. In fact, she won’t venture much further than about 10 feet before she checks to make sure that I’m still right there. She is great around young kids and other dogs. I highly recommend any Labs that Miller Gun Dogs breeds.

We purchased our pup from Miller Gun Dogs just before Christmas 2012. The experience has been nothing but fantastic! Miller Gun Dogs was so easy to communicate with and quick to provide all necessary documentation on breeding history etc. prior to purchasing our pup. They were even kind enough to meet me at the airport in Dallas to pick her up on Christmas Eve. They have consistently followed up on her to see if she was performing according to our expectations. Abby has exceeded all our expectations! We have not ever had a large dog in the house so my concern was that she not destroy my home during her puppy time. This has been no issue at all. She has taken to her toys and become the love of our sons life. She spent 3 months away from us being trained for retrieving. She got high marks across the board from our trainer and picked up 30 birds on her first day out. Thank you Miller Gun Dogs!
