"I've been around hunting dogs and
dog trainers all my life and am
familiar with most trainers in Texas.
Richard trained the 13th hunting dog
I've owned, a Labrador retriever I
wanted to use as not only a waterfowl
dog, but to also become part of my
family and have good obedience as I
have 4 young children.
I highly recommend Richard to train
your dog whether your a novice
hunter or experienced waterfowler, or
merely looking for some obedience
training. In my opinion - Richard is
the best dog trainer I know of or have
ever worked with in the past. Please
feel free to contact me personally if
you want. I can be reached at  I can
be reached at (214) 350-1203 or via

Richard included me in both of my
dogs progress and training every
step of the way.  By constantly
communicating with me on how and
what they were doing via phone,
e-mail, and constantly sending me
training photographs and videos of
my dogs.  I participated with Richard
in the training process and Richard
was beyond accommodating to my
busy schedule.  At the end of my
dog's training - Richard
accomplished exactly everything he
said he would do with them and
more.  He worked with my dogs daily
on a one-on-one basis, not throwing
my dogs into some training mill or
group with other dogs.  What I got
back from Richard are 2 completely
obedient dogs.

Richard conveniently makes himself
available for daily sessions in which
you can set up according to your
schedule and learn at your own pace.  
You can meet with him as often as you
wish then take his training methods
home with you to train your dog.  I
favor this method of training so you
can personally care for and train your
own dog.  Richard can help you solve
any problem you may have
encountered in training your own dog.  
If I make a mistake or we’re ready for
the next step I can schedule a session
and/or contact Richard anytime.  It’s
like Richard is the coach and Bruiser
and I are the TEAM.  Since we’ve been
working with Richard’s direction,
Bruiser has become a completely
different dog.  One I’ll take to the blind
or the line anytime.  I know that Bruiser
will be the dog I’m wanting because the
daily training sessions are geared
toward my personal goals and I’m left
with the responsibility to see it
through.  Feel free to contact me
through email if you’d like:
doc5168@yahoo.com.  See you in the
blind or at the line.  Happy Hunting!!

Wanting to train my own dog for
hunting and hunt tests I initially went to
Richard to help me through the
mysteries force fetching. In the
process he made a permanent client
out of me. His gentle approach and
easy to understand methods has
helped me take Tee from a young dog
struggling with junior/started dog
concepts to the point where we are
now preparing for our big run at
master/finished. He’s the only person
outside of the family that I completely
trust with my hunting buddy. I cannot
thank him enough!

I highly recommend Richard Pulvino for
training your dog or training you to
train your dog.
Sunni is 85 lbs of energy, hard
headedness and is spoiled rotten. A
challenge for any trainer.
Since meeting up will Richard, Sunni
and myself have excelled in reaching
our goals.
Richard has always been available by
either phone, email or in person to
help you work through the issues.
I have not had an issue yet that
Richard's knowledge, patience,
demeanor or tenacity has not been
able to over come.
I could go on but, you get the idea,
Richard is my dog trainer. Enough
said. Feel free to call or email me.

Re: LouLou
Dear Richard:
Thanks so much for taking care of LouLou for us over
Spring Break. It’s always nice for
us to know that she is treated as a part of the family,
as opposed to taking up space in a
kennel. She thrives on interaction with people, and we
appreciate the time and energy
you put into making her stay with you fun and
Thanks again for everything.

Well you did it.  You turned a wimpy suck ass chocolate lab
into a hunting machine.  Brought her out tonight for her first
duck hunt.  After I missed the first 4 that flew by and she
stopped laughing at me it was all business.  I dropped one
that hit the ground about 75+  yards behind me.  She didn’t
see it go down she was actually sitting on the other side of
the beaver house.  I called her to me and sent her in I don’t
know how she knew what I wanted but she did.  I thought that
she had went way beyond where the duck landed but she
came out of the grass, cattails and swamp carrying a
beautiful female mallard.  She didn’t want to let it go at first.  
After I got it from her I set it down so I could pet her and tell
her what a good dog she was, the duck started to run away
well she was back on that duck like you couldn’t believe

Friends referred us to Richard because "he works magic
with dogs".  We needed a little magic with our large great
dane puppy- before she got so big and out of control that
she ruled the house!  Bella spent 2 months with Richard,
and in that time developed into a well-behaved, loving,
gentle giant.  She's a pleasure to walk these days, and no
longer "plays" too hard with our children.  Richard spent a
lot of time teaching Bella- and us- the basics.  It's now a
pleasure to take this 100 pound, 8 month old puppy to the
park and watch her sit while all the kids pet her and chaos
breaks out around her.  Our kids love having her sweet
disposition around and I love how she listens and obeys our
instructions.  With Richard's help, Bella has become a much
loved part of our family.

I wish they could see him now.  Teddy was a pup we got from
North Dakota.  I was kind of new in the hunting dog area when
trainer that brags about how many championship dogs they
have trained.  It was one of those quick training to save you
money places.  Teddy spent the required time at the ranch and
when I picked him up the trainer told me he was a lost cause. I
was told that dog has no drive and is not birdie enough to
make a hunting dog.  I admit that Teddy is a lot different than
the High energy full throttle black labs that most of these
trainers are training but I was not ready to give up.  I had a
phone conversation with about 10 different trainers all across
four states and visited many of the facilities myself.  When I
visited Richard I knew that my first impression was not far off
on him.  His facility looked like my house.  His training places
resembled places I hunt.  My dog sleeps in his home and
plays with other dogs just like home. There is not 20-30 dogs
on the place.  Richard told me right away that Teddy had
potential and he wasn’t wrong.  Teddy is the most laid back
calm house lab you will ever meet but when the camo comes
out he is a machine.  Not every dog is the same. I recently just
picked up my second dog that Richard has trained.  Duke or
“The Devil Dog” as my wife says is the opposite of Teddy and
Richard did a fine job with him as well (wife is happy).  Richard
will get to know your dog personally.  He will figure out what
makes him tick and motivates him.  He understands the
differences in how much pressure to apply to the many
different personalities of dogs.  He will train your dog and
teach you how to use your dog. You will understand why your
dog tries to do certain things.  The best training is useless
unless the owner is taught how to use it in the process. Teddy
spent Saturday fetching 4 limits of ducks.  He spent over ten
minutes swimming after a wounded diver and picked up a
couple of doubles.  Pretty good for a dog with no drive.  Now if
we can just slow that tail down when the ducks are locked up.
