Ronnie Smith Certified

The certification program parallels our dog training classes so that each apprentice can gain in-depth knowledge of our system.

Each level of certification consists of a four-week apprenticeship at Ronnie Smith Kennels in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.  Each apprentice begins at the Foundation Level and works progressively through the stages of training.

“Dave is an outstanding bird dog trainer and a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend Dave, especially for those wishing to be closely involved with their dog’s training (and who enjoy being trained along with their dog!).”
