Orvis Dog-Training Tips, Episode 2: Training is a Lifestyle

Here’s the second episode in our new series of dog-training videos–featuring Ronnie Smith and Susanna Love of Ronnie Smith Kennels. The Smith family is legendary in the dog-training world. Ronnie’s uncle is the bird-dog legend Delmar Smith, recognized as the founder of the Smith Training Method and a Field Trial Hall of Fame inductee. Ronnie has been training dogs since he was fourteen years old and took over the family business in 1982. Susanna joined him in 2006.

In this episode, they talk about how to incorporate training into your daily lifestyle. It’s important to remember that your dog is not learning just during those times you’ve designated for training. In fact, they’re learning all the time, so you need to constantly pay attention and keep your rules consistent throughout the day.

  1. Love seeing Ronnie and Susanna in action. They trained our dog 8 years ago and the lessons we are still using the lessons we learned from Ronnie and Susanna. Great job!
