I have used Roger, Sharon and Amy Sigler with Antler Dogs at different times to train three (3) of my young dogs from separate litters. I am an avid antler shed hunter and very involved in sanctioned shed dog competitions and I therefore require dogs who are extremely driven to search for, locate and retrieve antler sheds. I need my dogs to have a strong desire to do this. However, dogs have no natural prey drive or instinct for antlers, so the trick is to get them to have that drive. The reason I like to use the Sigler's at Antler Dogs with my young dogs is because they use positive, reward-based training and do not use punishment, force or fear based methods. I never want my young dogs to have a negative experience with an antler and I want them to think that the antler is the best thing in the world and be obsessed with them, so they are eager to find and bring them to me. I have had excellent results with the 3 dogs that the Sigler's trained as young pups. All 3 are contenders in shed dog competitions and outstanding in the field finding wild antler sheds. My belief is that the foundation they received at Antlers Dogs is/has been vital to their success and it is without reservation that I recommend the Sigler's at Antler Dogs especially for that foundation training in young dogs.

  I would like to take the time to write a recommendation for Antler Ridge Antler Dogs. I have known Roger Sigler, his wife Sharon & daughter Amy for many years & followed them online watching their dogs achieve some great results. For several years, I could not afford to buy a dog but eventually I purchased a lab puppy locally & did my best to train her. After about 3 years of not getting the best results from her, I took her to Roger & Sharon for training. They kept her a month or so & when I brought her home, she was a very different dog. She focused on finding antlers & the results were worth the cost.

  After a couple years, I took her back & bred her to one of their male dogs & their puppies turned out to be some of the easiest to train.

 Now fast forward to 4 years ago. After seeing the results that Antler Ridge Antler Dogs with my own eyes, I decided to take the plunge & buy one of their male dogs. I purchased Ruger in April, which is after the best part of our antler season, but he found four antlers on his first day out and several more that year.

 Each year since then he has improved well beyond our expectations. This year we had one of the best days ever & found 23 antlers in 6 hours. This was not on a game farm but in the wild. Our total for the year was 61.

  I keep several antlers hidden around my pond in the woods & take him out weekly for a little walk. One time while trying to toss one across a small section of the pond, it fell short & ended up in the water. A week later, the wind was just right & Ruger threw his nose in the air & waded out, buried his head under water & retrieved that antler.

  I am very pleased with my Antler Dog Ruger! A big thanks to Roger, Sharon & Amy for their hard work training him.

                                                                                                Happy Hunting,

                                                                                                            Danny Wahl

Our experience with Roger & Sharon at Antler Dogs KC was absolutely amazing.   
We not only have a wonderful dog to take with us on our hunting trips with us but, we made some great friends. 

Although we are dog people our training knowledge is limited. It was nice to have found someone that can walk us through the training process. And help us understand what our expectations of our dog Gary should be. 
Roger's training knowledge is off the charts.

We bought our first lab Chi Chi from Roger almost 12 years ago.  When Chi Chi isn’t hunting antlers, she enjoys her time watch videos with the kids.   I highly recommend Roger and his dogs.

I can only start by saying thank you to Rodger and Sharon! Not only did they provide us with two wonderful dogs they have been there to support us with any questions that come up after you get back home. Their commitment to making sure you and your pet get the experience you're looking for is just not found anywhere else. They take the time to not only train your dog but, in my case, I also apparently needed training. First class operation with some first-class people running it!
