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 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 developed into one of the very best of our time.

Chris' training style is what many might call unconventional. Unlike just about every other great, 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 old, Chris may have trained more retrievers than anyone in history. With right under 4,000 retrievers going through Webb Footed Kennels over the past 20-plus years, there are very few that can claim to see and actually handle 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" and "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 Bono. He's well known for training all seven days of every week, so don't be afraid to stop by and ask questions anytime.
