Trent Leichleiter: Professional Trainer
Trent Leichleiter is Pheasant Bonanza's General Manager as well as a Pro Trainer. He is a young, energetic and passionate trainer who enjoys working with both flushing and pointing breeds. Trent has trained and handled his two Labradors to achieve AKC junior and senior hunt titles.
Trent's passion for hunting and the great outdoors came from hunting as a young child. Trent would accompany his father, Andy Leichleiter, every hunting season from the time he could walk. He credits his passion and desire to achieve success in both hunting and life to his dad. As he grew older, his hunting passion developed into an enthusiasm for retrievers and eventually led him to seek a full-time job managing a hunting preserve and training dogs professionally.
At Pheasant Bonanza Trent has a hand in everything from guiding hunters in the field to giving shooting instruction. His multitude of skills gained over a lifetime of hunting and training are put to good use.
Chuck Bohlin: Professional Trainer
Chuck Bohlin is one of Pheasant Bonanza's professional dog trainers. Chuck's love of the outdoors continued after his retirement from dentistry by joining the Pheasant Bonanza team as a full time trainer. He feels it is a privilege to work with this outstanding team not only in dog training, but other aspects of running a hunt club & dog kennel.
Chuck feels the highlight of each day is working with the dogs to bring out their full potential. "Training several breeds of dogs is a constant learning experience for both dog & trainer." He has trained several dogs that have since received AKC titles, won Pheasant Hunter Unlimited events and other hunting competitions.
Chuck particularly likes to take the dogs to the training pond to do water work in the summer and feels that the advantage of training at a hunt club is having the ability to train dogs over plenty of birds, pheasant, chukar, quail or pigeons from the early puppy stage through to a finished dog.
Our kennel features 50 heated and air conditioned indoor/ outdoor runs for the dogs. There is also a grooming and bathing area to pamper your pets. Pheasant Bonanza maintains a year-round, full-time staff of professional dog trainers and handlers. They are responsible for the training of a variety of breeds and personality types - from pups to finished dogs.
