Testimonials from our hunting dog customers is one of our greatest marketing tools. We value and appreciate all feedback from them. Most of all, we love hearing about how much they enjoy bird hunting with their gun dogs! If you are one of our satisfied hunting dog training customers, please leave a testimonial.

Being a first time dog owner, Ed Erickson did a wonderful job answering my questions and being available on a regular basis.

I had Windsor out hunting at 4-5 months old and pointing birds, I ended up shooting 15 wild roosters over Windsor before he was even 6 months old. I was completely surprised to have a wonderful hunting dog at such a young age. I can't say enough about Windsor's temperament as he is the first dog to play with kids in the neighborhood and is very directable in the field.

Without the help and training tips from Ed I would have never been able to have the dog I have today!

Ed, just a quick note, I recently returned from a South Dakota Pheasant hunt and Max performed far beyond my expectations. Once he got on the scent of a bird he stayed on it and than locked on point, after the bird was flushed and shot he retrieved the bird right back to me. The training that you did with him provided a great foundation that I was able to build upon, I could not be happier with the results. Thanks again!

Ed, I wanted to give you an update on Kess. I am so happy and proud of this dog its difficult to describe. Your knowledge, skills, patience, and determination to force break Kess sure paid off. As you recall, I kept in contact with you during the months you had Kess to get updates on his progress, as I was eager to get my best friend back. You told me that you didn't want to give Kess back to me until he was 100 percent trained. I must say your 100 percent is 100+ percent trained. I've had Kess over 500+ birds so far and he is doing awesome. He is steady on point, the commands "steady", "fetch" (land and water), and "here" are all well known to this dog.

The people who have hunted behind this dog are "amazed" to say the least. He tracks and retrieves crippled birds hundreds of yards away. In addition to being a great bird dog, he turned out to be a great family dog (including watch dog). The obedience you engraved in this dog shows everyday at home and in the field. I have attached a photo displaying how proud Kess is of his birds. I look forward to the Utility Test and the NAVHDA Invitational next year. When I need another dog trained, I will be contacting you - that's for sure. If you need a honest reference, have them contact me ANYTIME!

Thanks again Ed for your help and time, lets go bird hunting together sometime!

Ed has done a fabulous job of helping us develop Dirk, our top-notch family and hunting dog. With Ed’s guidance and training, Dirk (a four-year-old Deutsch-Drahthaar) is the envy of everyone who meets him because he is well behaved, loves children, obeys his commands, and hunts like a machine. To us, Ed was the difference between having an okay dog and a great dog.

Ed Erickson has been a driving force behind our quest for the best hunting dog's we could possibly have. He has helped us achieve with our dogs what we had only previously dreamed of.

We test in NAVHDA and the VDD. With our dog Max, he trained both Max and myself to run at the 2004 NAVHDA Invitational and we came away with Max being a Versatile Champion. Ed is a great dog trainer, but he is also a great teacher, for the first time handler or a seasoned pro.

With out Ed, none of this would have been possible. Thanks Fast Eddie!

Ed was recommended to me by another NAVHDA (North America Versatile Hunting Dog Association) member. This guy's wire-haired pointing griffon was an awesome retriever that he said Ed had helped him. My young German wire-haired pup Roxy would not go in the water and I really didn't know anything about training pointing dogs. This was a problem since we bought the dog for both upland and waterfowl and the dog was actually my daughter's dog (so we would not be replacing it if it didn't work out). So I called Ed and we scheduled a private lesson. After the first lesson which included some live bird work including a wing clipped pigeon into the pond, Roxy was a retrieving fool. That summer we entered Roxy in a NAVHDA Natural Ability Test in which she scored a perfect 112.

We scheduled a few more private lessons with Ed. Included in those lessons were e-collar conditioning for Roxy and training for me on using the e-collar for training. We also took Ed's trained retrieve class the following winter. This was also a great experience for both myself and Roxy as there was a group of about eight in the class and you got to watch other people train their dogs and learn from that.

Ed also gave a dog handling demonstration at our Ducks Unlimited Greenwing Day which was a huge hit with the kids and adults. The demonstration included one of his client's dogs that was working on blind retrieves for the NAVHDA National Invitational.

I would definitely recommend Ed as a dog trainer and he's even better at training people to train and handle their dogs.
