The Trainer: Carl Porter

Carl Porter


Carl has been training bird dogs since 1995. He started out under the training of Eldon Hongo. After six years under Eldon's training hunting and field trail dogs Carl became a professional dog trainer starting out with strictly hunting dogs in 2002. As a hunter, Carl knows what the foot hunter looks for in a Bird Dog. Finding Birds, Pointing, Easy Handle and looking good doing it. His training and breeding program reflect all of these traits and it shows in happy customers and winning Field Trial Dogs. 

Field Trail training


In 2005 Carl started running young trial  dogs in Puppy, Derby and Broke dog stakes on the local level. Starting out slow with only a few dogs allowed him to concentrate on the development of the young dogs into Finished Field Champions. He now competes on the local, regional and National level with dogs he has either trained or bred here at Hunting Dog

Breeding Program


Carl has been developing his breeding program over the last 15 years to produce the best available hunting and field trial dogs around. We want to produce "Bird Dog Deluxe" hunting dogs for our customers and our future Breeding Program. These dogs must be outstanding at finding birds, be trainable and social. We want a dog you look at and are proud of not only for what he can do but how he looks doing it. Carl wont sell a dog he wouldn't hunt over himself.
