Rhett has been training pointing breeds for more than 20 years, and most of that time he has been guiding and working in the hunting-preserve industry. He has enjoyed running dogs in a variety of trials and competitive events (horseback and walking), having placed dogs in NSTRA, NBHA, U.S. Complete, and others. At Prodigy Kennels, Rhett is always busy training his and his clients’ pointers and English setters at the Wild Wing Lodge and Kennel operation in Kentucky.
Why I Use SportDOG™ Brand
For the simple reasons that it’s reliable, durable and tough.
If I had to pick one, I’d say my favorite is the SD-1825. I like the choice of nick or continuous stimulation, plus I can easily set it up to run more than one collar at a time.
