Springers!!! Finally some flushers!!!

This is one of my favorite conversations ever. Todd Agnew owns Craney Hill Kennels. his breed of choice it English Springer Spaniels. We talk about everything from range to desire. Wild birds vs training, breeding, hunting, and what dogs are best suited for the average sportsman. The Springers strongest suit and their weakest.  I have a new found desire to hunt a Springer in South Dakota, just to get even with those sneaky pheasants.if you dont learn something from this episode, your not paying attention.  And please… give us a rating and or comment on Itunes.  I cant bear having a podcast about fluffy dogs or seeing eye dogs having a better rating than the dogs we love.

Spinones and more!!

First ever podcast, recorded right after a NAVHDA test. We talk about Spinone history, and talk with Karen Beyer, Ann Bagnell.  GSPs with Jason Carter and Vizsla’s with Deb Field. We talk about how three women all got their first sporting dog, and how it transformed them into hunters. and how Jason was born into his life with German Shorthairs. We cover alot of subjects from favorite shotguns to show vs. field and how the AKC has effected some breeds yet not others. Mushing with bird dogs. and just how much one has to spend on gear after they buy a pup….

Rinella Rebuttal and Song preview

Quickie Podcast… I talk about some of the points that Steve Rinella brought up in my last podcast. Truth be told, anything done with your dog is a plus!!! If you listened last night and didnt hear the song??? Well thats my poor editing and production skills. I reloaded the correct file and the song will be at the end, around 14 minutes. If you would, give the podcast a rating and review on Itunes…please and thank you.

Rinella Rebuttal and the new Hunting Dog song preview

This is a short follow up to the last podcast I did with Steve Rinella. and a sneak peak/listen to the song I wrote (sort of) about hunting with our dogs

And to be clear. I would rather have a bad day with my dogs than a good day doing anything else. I have in my will, that I want to be buried with whatever dog is is oldest in my kennel at the time of my demise. I know that sounds weird,but lets just say, there is a rainbow bridge for people and dogs??? I’m not showing up without one!!!!

Steven Rinella hunts the Dove opener

Steve Rinella and his film crew came to the Shenandoah Valley to film the Virginia dove opener. We had a blast, it was probably the easiest and most comfortable episode they ever filmed. We talk about guns, gun fit, bird hunters that love their dogs more than hunting, preserve hunting vs. wild, and topics all over the board. and finally I turn the tables on Steve and ask him a question that he has neve been asked before. You will be surprised by his answer. Along with us is Janis Putelis, and my friend Bill McPhail to chime in on several subjects.

European hunting with dogs

A great conversation with Mat Cervantes. He owns a Small Munsterlaner that he got while stationed in Germany. We talk about the differences in how we hunt here, and how it is done in Europe. We cover testing, training, breeding. and how serious hunting is taken by our counterparts across the pond. You will come away with a different perspective. What I took away from this episode was, we might need to pay more attention to what we take for granted,and what we should strive for. And not to be a broken record, please go to Itunes subscribe, rate the show,and leave a review. the fluffy dogs are gaining on us!!! Thanks so much  Ron
