Great working dog centric content!
As an avid bird hunter and the owner of a field golden and soon to be new owner of a Llwellin Setter, I find this podcast to be extremely enjoyable and educational. Tony is probably one of the best host of any of the bird hunting/bird dog podcast. He conducts very thorough, focused, and informative interviews in a way that is easy and enjoyable to listen to. I have listened to almost every episode and always keep up with the latest content Tony releases!
Enjoyed by city setter dog mum
Love this podcast! I’m a proud English setter owner (grew up with them in Canada). I’m not hunting with my dog in the traditional sense as we are city dwellers living (and sweating) in Atlanta, so applying what I hear and learn to give my dog her best life training and hunting experiences pointing at wildlife in city parks and cottages, (and on restaurant patios). I really appreciate that Tony has amazing women guests, experts, friends and talks about his daughter’s relationship with his dogs. One of the few podcasts or sources for bird dog owners that is empowering, inspiring for female listeners/dog owners (unfortunately a lot of the hunting or dog experts tend to be alienating). Keep up that great shows!
Tony sets the bar high for bird dog podcasts. Many well respected guests and Tony makes sure to ask them the right questions to get the most out of the conversation. I’d love to hear some interviews of winning cover dog or field trial competitors. The podcast would be even better if kennels would not be described as bomb proof.
