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 training 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!
Justin is back on the show to answer listeners question about their dogs. do and don’ts, right and wrong, and especially what not to do with your first bird dog!!! There isn’t a better dog trainer this side of Big Cabin Oklahoma. We dive into some great listener questions, and come up with some solid advise from a trainer that I respect...
I still need to pinch myself, that I was able to spend time with a legend of the dog training world. Delmar was born into a world that most, or all of us can’t wrap our minds around. A life of working with animals and the natural world. His simple approach to training has brought him fame, but his approach to life is what made him who he his. A true dog-man and a true people person. If i never do another interview, I will have zero regrets.Listen
We got a lot of great listener questions for Justin. He answers them in a way that only he can do. I have met dozens and dozens of dog trainers, and none of them explain things better, clearer, or with more thought than this guy. You will want to listen twice to this one!
I learned a lot from this episode. Ann is a forester, turned grouse hunter, turned grouse guide. So it was a perfect blend of talent that lead her to create Northwind Enterprisies and their newest digital mapping system Scout-N-Hunt. If you don’t learn something from this episode, you may be a worse grouse hunter than ME……Listen
Ben O’Williams is still swinging on birds and training new pups, In his mid eighties, he shows no signs of slowing down. I am changing my traveling wingshooting schedule to include at least 3 trips to hunt the Hungarian Partridge. Even though it’s and introduced species. The Hun is a survivor of the western prairie. Listen and learn from the expert.Listen
Justin is back for another informative episode. He answers some listener questions with that in depth approach that he’s known for. We talk steadiness, controlling your training environment, proof testing your dog and The two year plan. Thats right, dont think about where you’ll be in two month with your training. Plan long term. And Justin shares his story about his non pointing Setter. Yeah even pro’s are thrown a curve ball from time to time.
