Started Puppies & Further Training   

We can offer a basic started puppy training program (crate training, sit, stay, come, basic fetch) up to 16 weeks old here with us, however we only start 1 puppy/litter.


If you would like advanced hunting training, we have a select few trainers we work with. If you want an older pup or dog, your trainer can come and pick up your pup at 7 or 8 weeks. Or, if you want training after you take them home, we can also recommend a few proven local Montana trainers to take your Diamond R dog. Prices for a basic started pup with us vary based on weeks spent with us.  Prices for outside training will need to be discussed with that trainer. 

We only train pups purchased from Diamond R Kennels and that have not left the property.  We do not board dogs.  


Please leave a detailed message on our Contact page to send an email or call us and leave a message. Started puppies are on the same waitlist as 7-week pups, please expect to reserve your spot 10-14 months ahead of time.
