I was curious to know if anyone has heard of or has worked with Epps Kennels located in Northern California?

they are one of the very very few professional trainers in my area and I'd like to know how good they are at what they do? Any personal experience/ reviews?

Hi Wolfatomic,

I live in Reno and have a pretty livelly 4 mo old pup right now. I am all set to send him off to Epps. This is my first dog and I am not 100% comfortable with them or the process. Can you PM me and tell me where you eneded up sending your pup, what you liked and what you didn't, and what you might do differently. Also, let me know how everything turned out with your bumper excitement and obedience issues. First gun dog for me.

Thanks. The forum won't let me PM yet.

Have never heard of them- and I am aware of most all of the retriever hunting trainers in No CA area. I looked, and see that they are pointing dog folks .
I have trained a lot of client dogs from Reno area actually.; but there is a very good kennel/trainer right in your backyard, at Silver State Kennels. Very good folks, knowledgable and they work with retrievers on a daily basis- lots of them!

Thanks Billie. I I did go out to Silver State and they were great. Looking for a combo of retrieving and upland and Epps seemed to offer both. Has anyone ever been to Diamond P Gun dogs in Chico? I had a couple breeders recommend him.

I called Silver State last night and got set up. This was the second person I have talked to there. They seem great. We had a pretty good conversations around process and concerns with putting a WPG through retriever training. Honestly I am excited about a program where I get 7 weeks of training as well.

Has anyone used Silver State?

Good for you! I have known them for many many years- very good people, with very good dog knowledge. I think you will be in good hands!
