Butch trained my golden retriever Buddy. I can't thank him enough for training the dog and myself to work together as a team. After the 3 month program I left with the best dog I have ever hunted with. Whether hunting upland birds or water foul Buddy performed perfectly. Although he wore a training collar in the field I can count the times a correction was needed on one hand. I'm sad to say that Buddy has passed now but I have great memories of times spent afield with my best hunting dog ever. All my friends that have hunted with Buddy still talk about him and miss his legendary hunting prowess. I was also witness to Butch training other dogs that had some struggles. Butch was patient and knowledgeable and could deal with any challenge. I recently acquired a new Flat Coat Retriever that I will be sending Butches way soon. I won't use any other trainer. The results not only with my dog but others he has worked with speak volumes. Thanks for helping me to make great memories with Buddy and look forward to making new ones with Wilson.

After much deliberation I decided to drop my CBR pup off with Butch and Beverly expecting a thourough course in FF over the next 3 months. To my suprise, the actuall FF process was just the beginning of the program. Butch is a very hard worker and puts the time in with each and every dog/client team. I am absolutely thrilled with the entire experience and feel like we are light years ahead of where we would have been on our own.

Definately 5 Stars here !!
