Listen and learn for a veteran dog trainer. Justin trains hunting dogs for the field. If you are on your first or fifth dog, you will learn something for this episode. I always walk away from there with a new nugget of training insight. You can teach and old dog new tricks!!!
Justin trains bird dogs, no testing,no trialing, no ribbons. His approach to getting your dog ready to hunt, comes from a deep hunting background and even a deeper trianing background. He started cleaning kennels before he was old enough to drive a car. Learning from his mentors and applying that to wild bird hunting, gave him a no-nonsense approach to what it takes to have a dog that truly ready to go afield. I learn more every time I visit him, and you will too!!!
If you haven't learned about BHA yet, here's your chance to learn about a very motivated group of outdoors people. BHA is growing at warp speed all across North America. Helping all of us to keep public lands and waters in public hands. Your hands!!!
Nick is back in the kennel to talk retriever training and hunt testing. Not to mention... he passed his Kenny dog at both of the retriver worlds top venues. And of course a bit about things that have nothing to do with dogs.
Amanda part of a growing segment of outdoors people, passing on their knowledge and passions to those who haven't had the opportunity. T.E.A.C.H. outdoors is a homespun group of hunters, fishermen, and dog people, that give so much more than just lip service to recruitment. They put their talents and boots on the ground for others to experience the world live in and the world we love.
Admittedly I asked Jordan to come on the show to answer questions about my first Cocker. It turned into a great episode about training, breed bias, and raising children. Of course, we talk about more than that!! Enjoy this one and listen twice, if you really want to learn something.
