How 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 the world's finest hunting dogs and built one of the premier training facilities at his Webb Footed Kennels.
Webb Footed Kennels has more Hunting Retriever Champions than any other retriever training operation in the country.
With well over 100 Grand Champions and Master Hunters to his credit, Chris' ability to get the most out of a retriever is truly unparalleled. 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.
