Delmar Smith

I still need to pinch myself, that I was able to spend time with a legend of the dog training world. Delmar was born into a world that most,or all of us can’t wrap our minds around. A life of working with animals and the natural world. His simple approach to training has brought him fame, but his approach to life is what made him who he his. A true dogman and a true people person. If i never do another interview, I will have zero regrets. Enjoy

“Grouse, Partridge, and Open Skies” The latest book from Craig Kulchak

Criags latest book is a good read,makes me feel like an underachiever when it come to adventures with my dogs. Along with his quirky habit of never going on a hunting trip without a package of Oreo cookies for him and his dogs, he also has an obsession with a 1960 Land Rover. Also know for wearing breeks and a tie on the season opener. And to top it off, Craig shoots most of his birds with a .410 shotgun.
