undefinedAttention hunters: If you are attending the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits and want tips on training your new hunting Lab or pointer, don't miss "Puppy to Professional: Dog Training and Handling" with Jennifer Broom. As Cabela's pro staff dog trainer and founder of Quinebaug Kennels in Connecticut, Broom is back for the second straight year to share her advice on how to train your family pet and hunting companion for your upcoming waterfowl and upland hunting adventures. She offers one session each day and is on the schedule again tomorrow—Sunday, Apr. 26—at 11:30 a.m. in Indiana Convention Center room 137. She says "patience, persistence and repetition" is her secret to success as she discusses how to select the proper breed and breeder for your hunting companion and covers important puppy basics before getting into detail on different drills and lessons and advanced training techniques such as tips for proper use and training with e-collars.

"A family pet can be a great hunting dog and a great hunting dog can be a family pet," Says Broom. "When I hunt with my dogs, I look at it as a partnership. I challenge my dogs and make sure they know who is in charge--and I make sure they have fun, too."
