Talking bird dog training, the American Brittany, and the NAVHDA Invitational
Rick Affuso is a New York native whose passion in life above all is the Brittany which he joins the Project Upland Podcast to chat with us about. With his office and home wallpapered with American Brittany paraphernalia and the awards his dogs have taken over the years. Affuso has submerged himself in the gun dog community. He is dedicated to not only lending a helping hand to others, but to continue to learn and better he and his dogs.
Tune in to this episode of the Project Upland Podcast to hear Ric’s upland hunting and bird dog origin story along with his dog training and preparation regimen for the 2019 NAHVDA Invitational.
“The more dogs you get to watch and experience, the better you’ll be at training your own dog. It’s a community. NAHVDA is a community. It takes a community to train these dogs, it really does.”Rick Affuso
