About Chris Akin

Chris Akin is a duck hunter. His entire career has been built on a love for duck hunting. It wasn't long after high school that Chris had figured a way to make a living as close to duck hunting as possible. It was dogs. He began to understand that he had a natural talent to train retrievers and with time he would develop into one of the very best of our time.

Chris' training style is what many might call unconventional. Unlike just about every other great of our time Chris' training doesn't fall into a "Rex Carr or Farmer/Aycock" theory. It's all based on a huge number of retrievers trained. It's a safe argument to say that at 41 years of age Chris Akin may have trained more retrievers than anyone in history. With right under 4000 retrievers going through Webb Footed Kennels over the last 20 plus years there are very few that can claim seeing and actually handling anywhere close to as many retrievers as Chris has. Chris' style is based on a retriever's strengths as his style uses a "less-pressure" approach. You'll find that Chris uses more "attaboys & attagirls" than almost any trainer in the business.

Chris, his wife Janet and children Kristen and Clay live about 100 yards west of Webb Footed Kennels in the northeastern tip of Arkansas in a small town called Bono. He's well known for training all 7 days of every week... so don't be afraid to stop by and ask questions any time.
