Greg Harrell BIO:
Greg Harrell is one of SouthWind Plantation’s kennel managers, serving as one of our trainers for client dogs, while also heading up the training program for all of our plantation dogs. Greg's interest in dog training began at a young age. He began this journey through attending K-9 training schools with Max, who was one of his first dogs. Greg worked with Max to hunt like other field dogs. In no time Greg had Max picking up birds on dove shoots and retrieving ducks from the duck blind. The thrill Greg received from training Max is what fueled his interest to become a better dog trainer. As a result, Greg began his studies and started reading a large number of books on dog training. Greg also began reading information in regards to dog training on websites and taking classes offered by some of the top field dog trainers in their respective areas. Greg learned about dog training from some of the most well respected dog trainers in the world, which include: George Hickox, Rick and Ronnie Smith, and Harold Adams. Since training Max, Greg’s passion for dog training has transformed into an essential part of his life. Greg has helped train bird dogs at SouthWind Plantation over 15 years and has taken great pride in being able to see how SouthWind’s bird dogs have progressed through his stewardship.

Chris Smith is another one of SouthWind Plantation’s kennel managers. He began his dog training skills eight years ago through training Labrador Retrievers. Chris spent a great deal of time teaching labs to blind retrieve, sit, and stay. Chris started working at SouthWind Plantation four years ago where he began training English Pointers. During that time, Chris began working as a guide at SouthWind Plantation and continues to carry guests on the “Ultimate Hunting Experience”.
