Our program is designed to produce a well mannered hunting partner that has maintained all his natural style, desire and birdiness. Because our method is based on natural learning, your dog will become steady much quicker than with conventional training and exhibit all his natural intensity, drive and focus. In my training and breeding program, I want dogs with a good balance between drive and cooperation. I don’t want the threat of an e-collar to always be necessary for compliance. Don’t get me wrong, I use e-collar and they are necessary for many of the dogs bred in this country. Here, dogs are bred for drive. Most trainers deal with any lack of cooperation adding additional stress with obedience and e-collars. We all have different venues. Some like hunt tests, some like horseback or walking field trials, for some it’s tournament hunting and others like hunting wild or released birds. My dogs are specialists, they and their owners work together and hunt birds, wild or released. To hunt with a dog that is free to make the choices necessary ( stop to flush, steady to wing and shot & kill) to get the bird killed is different venue. No one has higher expectations of the dogs and the quality of the hunt than me. I call it classic hunting. It’s back to the beginning. It’s the reason all the other “games” were developed. My breeding program is unique. My dogs are bred for their natural cooperative ability and high drive. Dogs whose primary goal would be to successfully get a bird, not simply do what is necessary to avoid the the pressure of an e-collar. As some of you may know, I have hunted with Brittany dogs all my life, and owned many Brittany’s over the years, but only breed dogs with a natural instinct, and turned out to be all I could hoped for and more. My Venue and my goal is to promote foot hunting over classy dogs. So much so that I won’t sell one of my dogs to an owner who primary goal is to field trial or hunt test him. There is simply too much to lose with these special dogs.
Everyone has their own style and goals. These are some of mine.
