We are Tim and Jo Anne Harris, owners / trainers of Rug-ged Retrievers. We each have over 30 years experience training, competing, and breeding dogs. Jo Anne and I have trained dozens of dogs at every level of the Hunt Test and Field Trial programs, including over 25 Master Hunter titled retrievers, many Master National Finalists and Qualified All Age Retrievers. What began as a hobby over 30 years ago soon became our passion. That passion became Rug-ged Retrievers!
We do all of the training, and guarantee that you and your dog will never be passed off to an assistant who may or may not be here the next time you come to visit or work with your dog. At Rug-ged Retrievers you receive the highest quality, professional and personal service.
Building a strong relationship with you and your dog are key factors. As the owners / trainers we have a vested interest in your continued success. The care of your dog, helping you achieve your goals, and paying attention to details are our top priorities.
The majority of our clients have been with us for several years. Many since we opened our doors.
We provide you with regular updates on your dog's progress and are always available to answer your questions.
Give us a call today. We'd love to speak with you about your dog, listen to what you have to say and get started with a training program that will help you achieve your goals.
Remember, at Rug-ged Retrievers, dog training isn't our job, it's our Passion!
