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 has spent the better part of his life training some of the world's finest hunting dogs and establishing his premier training facilities at Webb Footed Kennels. With well over 100 Grand Champions and Master Hunters to his credit, Akins' ability to get the most out of a retriever has been proven repeatedly. He 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, Akins will show you in this DVD how it's done. Upon completion of Duck Dog Basics, you'll be ready for opening day with your favorite hunting partner.
