"I've been training and hunting with retrievers for well over 30 years. This DVD is the most fun and realistic gun dog training video I've ever seen. Chris is arguably the best competitive dog trainer of our time and just so happens to be a really serious waterfowl hunter. That's a very tough combination to beat." --Justin Tackett, Ducks Unlimited WaterdogHow do you create a duck dog? Growing up in the middle of Arkansas' famed green timber and rice fields, Chris Akin knows how to do just that. He's spent the better part of his life training some of the world's finest hunting dogs and establishing his premier training facilities at Webb Footed Kennels. With well over 100 Grand Champions and Master Hunters to his credit, Chris' ability to get the most out of a retriever has been proven repeatedly. Chris is also the only handler to win the Super Retriever Series Crown Championship twice. From choosing the right puppy all the way up to opening day, Chris will show you the way. Join him in this 2 1/2 hour DVD that will show you how it's done. Upon completion of Duck Dog Basics, you'll be ready for opening day with your favorite hunting partner.
