Welcome to Rogue Retrievers!

AdrienneMy name is Adrienne Hardin, and I specialize in AKC Hunt Test training for competition as well as gun dog training for water fowl and upland bird hunting. I believe the way to train dogs is to make them successful and confident so they love to train and run Hunt Tests. I also believe that owners should have a huge role in training their dogs and encourage owners to train and handle their dogs. I offer many options for retriever training from private lessons or in home training to group classes.

I have been a professional dog trainer for the last 12 years. I started training dogs when I was a kid in 4-H. I then went on to compete in AKC obedience trials as well doing pet therapy. I started training retrievers at a Minoggie Kennels in 2000 where I worked under Doug Shade and Patti Kiernan of Justin Time Retrievers. For the last five years, I have been training on my own. I have titled many dogs in obedience, all AKC Hunt Test levels (Juniors, Seniors, and Masters), and trained many great water fowl and up-land bird hunting dogs.

My dog training and boarding kennel is located in Columbia County, which is northwest of Portland, Oregon. I offer three comprehensive 30-90+ day dog boarding school programs: Gun Dog Boarding School, AKC Hunt Test Training Boarding School (both specializing in training retrievers) and an all breed Dog Obedience Boarding School. I have public and private training grounds through out the greater Portland metro area and Columbia county. I offer classes and private lessons for basic obedience training, retriever training, and AKC Rally. I also have retriever puppies for sale from time to time. Please feel free to call me at (503) 522-9896 or email at Adrienne@rogueretrievers.com.

What Rogue Retrievers has to offer you:

I know that owners and dogs are all different, so I offer many different training options. My goal is to create a program that not only will fit the retrievers needs but also yours. Whether it is sending your puppy away for puppy head start or training your Master Hunter on your own with a few private lessons, I can help. I offer Hunt Test Training Boarding School and Gun Dog Boarding School as part of my Retriever training services. I cover all the bases in the training from puppy to Master Hunter.

I offer obedience training for every level and breed of dog. Whether it is socializing your recently adopted shelter dog, teaching your over-excited dog to walk nicely on a lead, or AKC Rally, I have a plan for you. I offer a 4-6 week Board and Train program, classes, and private lessons. Learn more about obedience training.
