Richard Smith: Kennel Manager
Richard was the first person hired by Redmark Kennels and came to work for us in July of 2012, before the kennel was even built. He oversees the entire property and manages the kennel and the workers. When something needs to be done, you don’t have to ask him twice!
Richard started out helping Mark in the field with the Hunt Test dogs but it soon became evident that he had an uncanny ability to read a dog. He expressed an interest in participating in the hunt tests and we immediately began to train him on all aspects of dog training. He now trains all the hunt test and gun dogs along with Mark. Richard has titled several dogs in the AKC Hunt Tests and continues to advance his training skills by attending the same handling seminars as Mark.
Richard’s dedication to Redmark Kennels is an inspiration to all of is. He is one of those rare people that is loved by everyone who meets him. The dogs are pretty fond of him as well!
