The articles on this portion of our website are taken from a column " Companion Gun Dogs" written by Dick over a period of years for a monthly publication. They are fashioned and written to fit that format with strict word requirements.

  The information included in the articles is not specific to Dark Hollow English Setters, rather to all gundog owners and future owners. They were written based upon the experience and perspective of 50 years of gun dog training by Dick.

  If you have questions about training, care, general behavior, nutrition, or other aspects of gun dog ownership Dick is available by phone.
