    Default Arkansas Trainers

    Does anyoe know any Arkansas Trainers? I've done a lot of work my self, but time is a little limited right now, so I was considering using a pro.

    I'm aware of:
    Ware eagle retrievers...I bought my dog from them and Webfoot Kennels (Chris Atkins). I'm not sure of anyone else. Does anyone know of any more? Has anyone had any experience or knowledge pertaining to the two I listed.

    Thanks,
    Carey

    He has 2 of my dogs now and has trained my other one as well. He is as good as anyone in this area. He is located in Russelville.

    He is going to be a hunting dog first and foremost, but I would like to get into HT. I'm not sure if I'm going to send him to get trained yet, because I enjoy training him myself. I'm just considering it right now.

    Chris Akin at Webfooted Kennels or Keith Allison at War Eagle Retrievers. I have trained with both. Top of the line. Both would do a great job. Thanks Chris

    Toots

    We purchased Toots, a black lab puppy out of Chopper and Stella, from Derek at the War Eagle Retrievers kennel in Oklahoma. Toots is now under the training of Jere and will be moving on to Keith at the War Eagle Retrievers training location in Arkansas. After spending the day watching Jere and Keith train the dogs, we were very impressed with their expertise and our dog’s performance. Derek, Keith, and Jere make a great team! We would highly recommend War Eagle Retrievers. Good luck!

    I am going with Chris on this one..If you are looking for a great duck dog, and HT dog I would seriously reccomend Chris Akin at WebbFooted Kennels. I have two dogs in training with him. The older of the two went in under started level, after six months was running cold blinds. This same dog picked up well over 100 ducks this year, and at this point about 8 months later, is running right at a finished level. He has a great crew working with him, and is a great professional.

    Chris is one of my closest friends, I spent every day the last two months either in the field or working with him and Justin Etter at the kennels. Now knowing this just check his pass rates at HT's they will speak volumes...Great folks, great training grounds, you won't be dissapointed...
