Ronnie Smith Kennels
We are a family owned bird dog training facility in Northern Osage County, Oklahoma. We specialize in training pointing breeds. Our family has been deeply immersed in bird dog training for generations and have competed in field trials, guided hunts, and trained thousands of dogs. We feel blessed to be able to continue our family legacy of helping bird dogs and bird dog owners. We offer an array of services to bird hunters and competitors to support you as you achieve your personal goals with your dogs. We hope to see you in the training field in the future!

Bird Dog Training Classes
We hold multiple bird dog training classes annually at Ronnie Smith Kennels (RSK). We take young dogs to prepare them for a lifelong career as a bird dog. We train pointing breeds in all of the facets of being a polished, proficient bird dog. Our canine alumni are always welcome to come back for tune up classes. Every hunting season (November through February) we can be found guiding hunts and working dogs in Texas on wild quail.
Rick & Ronnie Smith Seminars
Our family is well known for our training seminars. These seminars are a great opportunity to gain hands on instruction on how to train your bird dog. We believe everyone, if given the opportunity, can successfully train their own bird dog. We have a successful training system that will walk you through each step in training your dog. We’d love to see you at a seminar with either Ronnie or Rick!
Bird Dog Trainer Apprenticeship
We offer a unique experience to select people that wish to become professional bird dog trainers. The apprenticeships give an in depth look at our training system and the daily routine of a training kennel. Since this is such an intense program, there are limited spots available for the apprenticeships.
The relationship between dog and owner is a special thing. There are many nuances that impact that relationship and can make it a healthy or an unhealthy interaction. We hope to be a part of enriching your relationship with your dog and to help you maintain a lasting, healthy relationship with your bird dog that is instrumental in creating a lifetime of memories.
