A retriever that sits steady and confidently retrieves birds is truly an incredible tool for the hunter. But, it's still only a small part of what these amazing animals can accomplish. It's time to start heading towards the development of the finished retriever. All dogs can learn to handle -- that's right, young or old, 100 percent of retrievers that have a desire to retrieve can become good handling hunting partners.

Train your dog to handle with one of the greatest retriever trainers of our generation, Chris Akin. He's the first handler to ever win two SRS Crown Championships, and his amazing run of AKC Master Hunters and HRC Grand Champions may never be equalled.

Within Duck Dog Basics 2, Chris takes you through proper e-collar usage while teaching the drills and aspects of basic handling, water honesty and how to positively take your retriever through to the next level. Now, the groundwork has been completed, grab your whistle, a bag of bumpers and let's get to work.

  4. About Chris Akin

    Chris Akin is a duck hunter. His entire career has been built on a love for duck hunting. It wasn't long after high school that Chris figured a way to make a living as close to duck hunting as possible. It was dogs. He began to understand that he had a natural talent to train retrievers, and with time, he developed into one of the very best of our time.

    Chris' training style is what many might call unconventional. Unlike just about every other great, Chris' training doesn't fall into a "Rex Carr or Farmer/Aycock" theory. It's all based on a huge number of retrievers trained. It's a safe argument to say that at 41 years old, Chris may have trained more retrievers than anyone in history. With right under 4,000 retrievers going through Webb Footed Kennels over the past 20-plus years, there are very few that can claim to see and actually handle anywhere close to as many retrievers as Chris has. Chris' style is based on a retriever's strengths as his style uses a less-pressure approach. You'll find that Chris uses more "attaboys" and "attagirls" than almost any trainer in the business.

    Chris, his wife Janet and children Kristen and Clay live about 100 yards west of Webb Footed Kennels in the northeastern tip of Arkansas in Bono. He's well known for training all seven days of every week, so don't be afraid to stop by and ask questions anytime.

    This DVD came highly recommended by Ret. club members. The real time training of young dogs is helpful. Like the simple drills that work with my dog. Will be looking forward to the next DVD that goes to the next level.

    I can only compare this to fowl dogs and only in theory, but Chris seems to make things easy to understand, and I like how he treats his animals. If a dog fails, he always stresses that its his fault not the dogs and how to correct it. Just wish he had more problems and corrections demonstrated.

    I have over 40 years worth of books and tapes for training your retriever. His two CD's are the best. They gave me more confidence training my dog. De-cheating was the unbelievably easy and successful.
