"My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog already thinks I am".

Carl Porter, Professional Trainer

  Carl Porter started out as and is first of all a bird hunter. As a "Hunting Dog Trainer" he understands what a foot hunting bird hunter wants and needs from his bird dog. An obedient well trained dog that handles easily, points birds, holds birds and retrieves to hand. He trains all pointing and flushing breeds for the devoted outdoorsman. When your dog is finished it will respond to whistle and verbal commands, be controllable in and out of the field, be steady to wing and shot and retrieve to hand. He trains personal Hunting Dogs full time on site and also competes young Field Trial prospects on a local level.

Carl starts 4-6 month old puppies for initial developing in our "Head Start Program", all the way to finishing your hunting dog steady to "Wing and Shot". He requires that all owners or handlers of the dog be an active participant in the training before you go home with your new Hunting Partner so the exchange is smooth and successful. All commands will be taught to the dog and the handler alike to insure a first-class pleasurable hunting experience. Then when you begin hunting together you and your dog will be hunting as a team.


Field Trial Trainer/Handler

Carl started handling professionally trained field trial dogs in 1996 and competed as an avid Amateur Field Trial handler at the local, Regional, and National Field Trial levels before turning pro. He now trains and handles field trial dogs he started on the local AKC level during the winter an spring months while most of the hunting dogs he trained are being hunted on wild birds during the hunting season. Carl started out as Eldon Hongo's assistant trainer and was under his personal training from 1996 to 2002. He is now training and handling his own string of Field Trial Dogs on the west coast throughout the trial season.






"If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth."
