SETTER GUN DOG TRAINING
(Limited to Llewellin Setters)
I have had dealings with other trainers in
the past and it has not been an enjoyable experience.
BUDDY - Llewellin Setter, Male
The training that Buddy received there was excellent. Good breeding without quality training is pretty much useless. Your training program did exactly as you said it would. Buddy is doing well. I took him out to a nearby field to practice and imagine my surprise when he found six quail! You have to understand that everyone around here thought that there were no wild birds left! I would highly recommend your program to anyone. Thanks for all your help.
Chipper - Llewellin Setter, Male
One of the main things that impressed me about your training program was the fact that you made it clear that you wanted to know exactly what I wanted my dog to be. The fact that you are a bird hunter, not just a dog trainer, made me feel good about the training Chipper was going to get. I wasn't disappointed. Chipper came home ready to hunt birds. He came home working our South Georgia bird cover like an old pro, and he was only 18 months old. I knew Chipper had a lot of potential, and you took that potential and developed it into a finished dog.
When I visited your facilities I was impressed by the cleanliness of the kennels, the modern equipment you had available, and the old-fashioned way you used your training grounds to turn out a finished dog. It was apparent that Chipper was getting a lot of personal attention from you. Llewellins are special dogs, and it takes special people to develop them.
I appreciated the opportunity to take part in Chipper's training. I had to drive 500 miles to visit, but after spending the day with you and Jane, I felt it was time well spent.
BUSTER BROWN - English Setter, Male
Buster and I both thank you for the great job you did with him. Total transformation! He's become the star of my kennel and nobody can believe what a difference 12 short weeks with y'all hath wrought!
I can hardly wait until bird season!

I have to say that you did a wonderful job giving Lilly the training she needed. I could have never gotten this much out of her without your help. We're still getting used to each other, but she is biddable and responsive, and has actually become steady on flushes. Not quite sure how that happened, but she bumped a couple of birds today, and stopped to watch them until they landed . . . I don't fault her for the bumps with the conditions, but I was absolutely amazed that she held steady. The part that will make you proud, she actually retrieved a downed bird and brought it back.
I would have never believed that she would be this good at only 15 months old. There was a 3-4 month gap from when we picked her up and when I was able to get her out to hunt, and you would have never known it. She is more than I could have ever asked, and I attribute most of that to the training she got from you.

WYATT - Llewellin Setter, Male
I would highly recommend Phil and Jane Fortner of Pea Ridge Kennels to anyone with hunting dogs especially Llewellin setters. Phil is very knowledgeable and patient with dogs. I was very nervous about leaving Wyatt for 2-3 months, however after meeting Phil and Jane, I felt very confident that Wyatt was in good hands. Especially after the first visit. It's truly amazing how much improvement I noticed after only a few weeks. I am convinced that no one would be anything but satisfied with the hard work that Phil puts into the training. With his expertise and Jane's caring and kindness there is no doubt that my future hunting companions will be trained by Phil and Jane Fortner.
Crystal & tim powell Gracey, KY
Tim and I have sent all of our dogs to Dr. Phil for training.
We felt very comfortable with Phil and Jane the first time we met and were very pleased with the kennel and training area. Dr. Phil is very good at what he does.... gentle, calm spoken and he earns such respect from the dogs. Jane took pictures of the dogs and sent them by e-mail along with reports about their training.
I was very impressed with Buck on our first 30 day visit...he seemed to watch every move Dr. Phil made. We have since sent Betty Lou, Athena, and Zeus for training. They all hold their point nicely and retrieve to hand. We are looking forward to taking them hunting soon.
