    Default Feedback from previous clients

    I like to hear from previous clients and how their dogs are doing.

    I got a Christmas email from Scout's (cream colored golden) owner at how pleased he was with Scout. He went on two upland hunts this year and Scout did great and was very obedient in the field.

    Cabbie Lou and Briley went on their annual pheasant hunt in Kansas and were complimented on their work by the club owner. I also just got a picture of Cabbie and Briley with two limits of ducks with the comment that the girls did great. Cabbie is a CLF from Endless Mountain Kennels in PA and Briley is a YLF and is by Fenn.

    Hank (by Pirate) has been doing great on his duck hunts. He missed out on a two limit hunt because of an eye and ear infection but is well and hunting again.

    I hear from Huck's owner frequently and he is doing great. He used to train with me periodically but they moved to CA so I don't see him anymore.

    I have posted videos of the above dogs doing various setups/drills with me.

    Unfortunately, I don't hear from most people about their dogs. I encourage my clients to let me know how their dogs are doing.

    I guess the point of this post is to encourage everyone to let your trainer know how things are going.

    I try hard to keep in touch with the breeder. Good or bad!! It has been difficult training my young pup so I let them know. And I send photos and update. I think they appreciate you doing that!

    I agree. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than getting a text or e-mail from a client telling me about how great their dog did on a hunt. Several clients send me pics of their dogs with birds. For whatever reason, even if it's just a basic gundog that picked up some ducks out of the decoys, that fires me up more than pics of dogs with ribbons.

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    Wayne, I especially love it this time of year. I get pictures maybe not daily but definitely weekly of both current and previous clients. Sometimes they have questions accompanying the pics but mostly they just send em to brag...and that makes me proud!! I love seeing all of the hard work paid off with giant smiles!!
