  1. I have had the pleasure of spending many hours in the training realm of Ronnie and Susanna and I can tell you that their philosophy and methodology to training bird dogs is what I’ve seen be successful time after time. They are consistent and both have the ability to read dogs like I’ve never seen. I really enjoy your Podcasts and hope you keep them coming with Ronnie and Susanna. I still learn something new every time I listen.

  2. One of my favorite podcasts. Susanna is a perfect compliment to Ronnie. As helpful as their podcasts and book are, the weekend I spent at RSK for an Intermediate Seminar with Ronnie, Susanna and their kids provided a lifetime of bird dog training memories. Listen to the podcast – read the book – sign up for a seminar – become a better dog owner/handler.
