We are very proud to introduce Jerimiah Davison & Chris Smith to you as our newest Advanced Level Huntsmith Trainers. It takes sincere dedication to interrupt your life to spend months with us learning the finer elements of training bird dogs. That is exactly what these guys did.
Their work ethic and compassion for dogs is second to none. They were at the kennel every morning at 4:00 a.m. Even after the last dog was worked, put up, and cared for, they were tending to the kennels making certain every water bucket was clean and disinfected and every kennel run was spotless. All of this they did with enthusiasm and a smile on their faces.
Both Jerimiah & Chris have a good touch with animals. Like us, they will be students of animal behavior for the rest of their lives. We are proud to have them in our network of Huntsmith Trainers.
Jerimiah Davison has hunted his entire life and bought his first bird dog 12 years ago. That bird dog literally changed his life. He has trained his own dogs for years, but has taken his training abilities to a new level. He is currently relocating his kennels to northern Nevada. Jerimiah plans to have his training facility open to the public soon. In the meantime, you can contact him through is wild bird hunting guide service, Western Wing Adventures.
Chris Smith once said “My wife says I have a sickness. I tend to disagree, it’s more like a passion.” How true that is! Chris has worked with animals most of his life, but then the bird dog bug bit him. Chris currently owns and operates BackCountry Bird Dogs near Billings, Montana and is accepting dogs for training. We’d like to congratulate Chris on his field trial placements this weekend. This was the first trial Chris has competed in since obtaining his certification. His German Wirehair dog Ruger won second place in Open Derby. Chris’s vizla, Dunken, received two legs on his junior hunt test (scoring 9s & 10s). In the same weekend, his weimaraner won Prize 2 at a NAVDHA trial. We’re proud of you, Chris!
