North Dakota Dog Training Permit: Reminder

For those who may have missed Sherry Ebert’s article North Dakota Summer Training in the May, 2009 edition of the Field:

If you are heading out to train bird dogs in North Dakota this summer/fall, please obtain your dog training permit. For non resident professionals (training or hosting field trials) the fee is $100. For amateurs (with more than four dogs), the fee is $25.

Permit forms should be requested from:

North Dakota Game and Fish Department
100 North Bismarck Freeway

Bismarck, N.D. 58501-5095

Call: 701-328-6335

The permit will be accompanied by a set of guidelines. Of special importance is the section pertaining to use of live protected birds for dog training and field trials which must be followed to the letter. 

Please do not neglect to obtain your permit. It could jeopardize the future for all those who enjoy and whose livelihoods are tied to training dogs in North Dakota. If you know a retriever or flushing dog trainer headed to N.D., please remind them of their obligation as well.

Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present — amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend, Bill Allen who passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loving family on January 25, 2022 at the age of 96. We will miss him but he left us the greatest of gifts, his wonderful writings in a book we published for the 3rd time in 2021: The Unforgettables and Other True Fables.
