Bird dog podcast: pro trainer Sharon Potter on what really matters, and how a dog thinks

June 1, 2022

Sharon Potter may be best known for her byline alongside Rick Smith in Pointing Dog Journal, where they pen a monthly column on dog training. She runs Red Branch Kennels in Wisconsin, where she trains all hunting breeds. An avid bird hunter, her insights go beyond basics to deeper, fundamental rules that serve a dog for its entire life.

We cover bird contact, instructional basics that we often ignore, puppy development, our biggest goofs in the field and critical gear. The Upland Nation Glossary hits "P," there's a public access destination and listeners confess their worst in-field habits.
