A talk with Kyle Admondson, professional dog trainer. Tell me your technique and tell me your story. Can't remember a time I didn't have dogs, head dogs all my life, trained all my life. Really had no clue what I was doing until I met a guy named Frank Puccio who owned Hunt Hill Kennels five years ago, went to work for him for two seasons, which our seven month season. He'll take in six dogs a month for seven months of the year. And I was his apprentice, called me the kennel boy at the time. But that's where I truly learned how to train and take care of Griffons. Now I'm doing it for myself as much as I can. I do a lot of puppy introductions. Introduction to Birds, Introduction to Guns, do field work, do as much steady work as I can. Going to train another dog to UT this year, which is utility testing for Nevada, which is a big part of what I do. How do you. Speaker2: Introduce dog to birds? You just take them out in the wild. Speaker1: You take them out with a bag full of pigeons is what I do. I want the dog associating that fun chase of a pigeon and that prey drive with the gunshot. If things have gone right, people have introduced noise when they're feeding their dogs. If I can get a dog really chasing a pigeon, I can start firing a shot around. You carry a kill bird with you, and you reward that dog with feathers in the mouth. Pretty soon the dog is associating all the good things of hunting with that shot. Speaker2: Kyle specializes in Griffons. His number (208) 871-3007.
