About

Grant and Alex Huff have a combined 35 years experience training dogs to an advanced level for AKC hunt tests, duck hunting, and obedience. They both grew up in East Texas with a love for duck hunting and dogs, which eventually led them to a career working with dogs of all breeds. They love seeing dogs reach their full potential and bridging the knowledge gap between clients and their pets. Unlike many trainers, Grant and Alex do all of the training themselves, from start to finish. This ensures each dog is getting the most out of their time at One Shot Retrievers. Furthermore, they will spend a significant amount of time helping owners understand how to fairly correct and handle their dog once they take them home. One Shot Retrievers looks forward to working with you and your dog!

Snake Avoidance Clinic

Please join us each August for our annual Snake Avoidance Clinic!

Wayne Lain, of snakebreaker.com, specializes in training pets and hunting dogs to avoid dangerous snakes. He uses live Rattlesnakes, Copperheads, and Water Moccasins (when available) that have been rendered harmless by removing the fangs and taping the mouth shut. He then introduces the dog to the sound, smell, and sight of the snakes. At a precise moment the dog alerts on these senses, he gives a brief stimulation with the E-collar. The dog associates the snake with delivering the stimulation. The training wears off over time. His best suggestion for keeping your animal safe is to vaccinate your animals with the Rattlesnake vaccine and get snake avoidance training every year.

$100 per dog
