Our Training Program

"Our training program has taken a little from each of these great trainers, and molded it into something that fits me. We use the Rex Carr method of forcing, along with pieces of Soprano and Willett, marking tactics from Mike Lardy, along with some ideals from Bob Region and Barry Lyons system, to come up with our system. Our program is designed to move forward as fast as the dog is capable. On an average, a dog is training at the Grand and Master level at 2 years of age." - The Trainer

Systematic routines are only part of the equation that builds a truly desirable hunting and performance companion. It takes pride, discipline, a respect for the retriever, and the ability to "read" the dog, knowing how to proceed from lesson to lesson, day to day.

Autrey Kennels is dedicated to bringing forth the best in performance from its retrievers. From the cold northern flyway, to the everlasting swamps of Louisiana, to the rice fields of the duck headquarters of the world - Stuttgart, Arkansas - you will hear our name.

ESPN, The Outdoor Life Network, and The Food Channel have all shared air time with our retrievers. The 2002 World Duck Dog Championship was held in Stuttgart, Arkansas at Mack's Prairie Wings during the annual Wings Over the Prairie festival. Taking top honors that year was 13x GRHRCH Missy's Cajun Dakota MH, who also backed up the win from 2002 with a Silver Medal 2nd place finish in the 2003 competition. The Super Retriever Series is a qualifying stepping stone to the ESPN Great Outdoor Games. In 2003, Cody finished 2nd place in the SRS held in Northfield, Minnesota, qualifying him to compete in the 2003 GOG event which would take place in Reno, Nevada later that year. Sustaining the humid conditions, Cody put on a stellar performance in Reno, capturing the Bronze Medal amongst a list of very tough competitors which included two previous GOG Gold Medal winners and the 2003 Stuttgart winner.

We know, from witness accounts of watching Mr. Autrey and his dogs over the course of the years, how the story has progressed. A devote combination of hard work and fidelity to these fine animals sets Bill Autrey apart from the rest - in any hunting environment or venue of retriever testing. You can see in performance: the desire and enthusiasm of an Autrey trained retriever.

Food, Nutrition, and Health Care

"I have been feeding the Purina Mills , "Exclusive" dog food for a little over 10 years now. I feed the purple bag Performance, as I have found that this food gives me the best energy, best coats, and best stools of any dog food out there. I have a couple of dogs that must take a thyroid pill twice daily, that pill needs to be given with food. So I started feeding all my dogs twice a day and quickly found out that I would need to feed from a half cup to a full cup less each day. In Louisiana I get my food from Austin Ag Supply in Pineville. In Minnesota I get my food at the Bemidji Co-Op but the Clearbrook Co-Op also has the Exclusive dog food.

The first of each month I give all the dogs a heart worm pill plus flea and tick control that the owners provide. About 6 years ago, we were briefed by the University of Auburn Vet school that the current heart worm pills were not preventing heart worms in all cases. Since then on the 15th of the month I give each dog liquid Ivermec in accordance to their body weight and so far have not had a dog test positive for heart worms."
