Testimonials

Our lab Sunday is the most well-mannered dog I know. Thanks to Landmark Retrievers, Sunday is not only a great bird dog, but more importantly, best friend to our two little girls. We could not have asked for a better experience!

Elsa, the Italian Spinone went to Landmark Retrievers approximately at 9 months old. From her training, she became very obedient, knowing all the commands and responding well even to our younger children. Max, the Wheaten Terrier also went to Landmark Retrievers at the same age. He quickly became a very well trained dog, obeying every command and really wanting to please us. He also learned to retrieve from the water, which became his passion. We are happy with the results with both our dogs.

As an avid hunter, hunt test participant, and amateur dog trainer, I have sought Roger’s counsel for many years. I have worked with a wide variety of professional trainers and I can say without reservation, Roger is the best at what he does. I have gone weeks trying to fix a certain problem with my dog’s behavior getting advice from a variety of professional trainers only to visit Roger and have the problem not only diagnosed, but virtually fixed inside of one hour. Roger is a consummate professional and maintains immaculate facilities. He has an uncanny ability to “read and understand the dog.” His experience and insight into dog behavior creates a very efficient and effective training process that ensures maximum benefits for the dog and their owner. I highly recommend Roger and Landmark Retrievers to anyone!

Roger has identified and trained both my retrievers and they both are outstanding successes, in and out of the field. I’ve known Roger and worked with him for over 10 years. In addition to being a first class trainer, he is also a nice guy who really cares about what he does. I have had no hesitations introducing my friends to him.

I have had two “tune ups” for my black lab Bullet. In both instances he came back in the best form and attitude I have seen. I have also had a puppy trained by Roger; one he said was one of the most difficult dogs he had ever trained. Sadie is now an outstanding field dog thanks to Roger.

Our male yellow Labrador Cade spent 8 weeks at Landmark beginning when he was 7 months old. Each time I visited during his stay I was amazed by Roger’s insight into his mind - he knew what my dog was thinking! More impressive than this are the results - excellent obedience and a great hunter even at 11 months. He retrieved about 8 ducks early in the season and then during our Christmas vacation to Wisconsin, found 50 pheasants and retrieved 40 of them - the others I screwed up on and flew off unharmed. I have no reservation in recommending Landmark and will bring my next dog here too.

Roger Conant and his organization, Landmark Retrievers, LLC provides wonderful training for retrievers, no matter what their intended purpose may be. Roger’s group covers the spectrum in training, no matter whether the dog will be a family pet or a serious waterfowl hunting companion. I appreciate the philosophy and methodology that Roger utilizes to reach the dog’s desire and encourage that need to please. The results are great!

You all turned out a first class dog with Callie. 

⁃ Jim McCoy 


She continues to impress and she out did herself.

- Derrick Cuenca


Absolutely the best, he minds and hustles. He couldn't be better, you guys are the best.

⁃ Hub Baker and "Sue"


We had a great hunt and she retrieved every bird, no lost birds.  She has a endless drive to hunt.

⁃ Scott Weller and "Ginger" 


Daisy is doing great. We went hunting last weekend and did really well. She was a little rusty in the morning but was on her game in the afternoon. In total, she retrieved around 40 birds. She was a little sore the next day to say the least! She is around 7 years old now but still has tremendous amount of energy. We are going again this weekend and she is ready! Hope all is well with you. Take care and keep in touch.  

⁃ Philip Williamson


She's doing great. Bella turned two on August 13.Had some great dove hunting and she did everything right, despite some tough conditions. I would like her to spend the month of October with you to get her in shape prior to Quail season.

⁃ Robin Robinson


Roux is great! Thinking about bringing him back for refresher.  Picked up 100+ doves opening day.  Stay and steady to shot are weaknesses (typical of a young dog and novice handler); but drive, nose, marking and retrieve are all off the charts. 

⁃ Bo Howard


All is good! Thanks! We had a good opening day and Trooper did great- had to keep him hydrated!

⁃ Ward Wilson 


Ranger did great opening weekend. He got to a few birds that we normally would have lost which is awesome. The guys I were with were very impressed with how he was and worked and retrieved the birds. I couldn't be happier or prouder of him and looking forward to more hunts in the coming weeks.

⁃ David Ray


Bailey is doing great. The kids and other dogs love having her back. You all did a super job.

⁃ Stephen Swann and "Bailey" 


Raven is doing great. The good news is, I have been working with her about 4 days a week since she got home.  She is doing AWESOME!!!!!!  Her obedience is doing really good. She is having no issues. You are a lifesaver, I will keep working with her and maybe we will bring her back to you for a brush up.

THANK YOU!!!!!

⁃ Hoyt Utay 


AWESOME. We moved 20 coveys each morning and afternoon we hunted. We hunted three times. She found at least twenty birds that otherwise would be lost. Bella worked close to me, respected the pointers and marked many shots. Good manners and demeanor. Great for her first quail hunt.

I hunted yesterday and today at my place in Oklahoma and we had a great shoot. Nick was great.

Roger:  I wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the amazing transformation you have made in her. You are the best. Thanks again.
