Happy to serve as a pleased reference.
I write to thank you for your outstanding work with my dog Tye. Since picking Tye up on January 4th we have worked together almost daily and Tye has yet to fail to follow a trail. In addition Tye has located several deer. Some of the deer I dragged into the woods so Tye could follow the trail. However he has also located three difficult trails including one gut shot doe that jumped twice requiring us to return hours later.
In sum I am very pleased with your work and wanted to express my appreciation. I don't have your email address but have enclosed my card containing mine if you are interested send me a message and I will respond with a few photographs of Tye with his deer and a couple of him on the trail.
I recommend the training you conduct and am happy to serve as a pleased reference anytime.
With kind regards, I remain

I don't believe Angola's bloodhounds could have done better.
Don, you are a class act.
My dogs turned out even better than I could have dreamed possible. Daisy has found 11 deer (one track was over a mile). I have run her on more than a dozen human tracks and she has only failed on one occasion. I don't believe Angola's bloodhounds could have done better. Josie has found three deer and successfully completed many simulated tracks.
Thanks Don for your great knowledge and ability.
We really felt we got super training.
This was very interactive as well as positive feedback. We really felt we got super training. It was a full and informative weekend. We have adapted Don's charting technique and it's working very well.
Excellent instruction from basic to working.
A weekend course of tracking conducted by Don Abney in Lewisberry, PA and hosted by our local dog club. We had tons of positive comments and are still receiving requests to have Don return for a second session. Excellent instruction from basic to working.
I have you to thank for harnessing her abilities.
Don, Just wanted to touch base and give you some feedback on Lucy and her training. I cannot express how pleased I am with Lucy and her ability to track deer. She has successfully found five deer for us, one of which I am sure we would have never found without her. It is clear that she is getting better each time and I no longer have any doubt in her ability. In fact, she is only limited by my ability to keep up with her on her tracks. Lucy, as she is still young and in need of more obedience training, simply amazes the other club members. None believed that such a free spirit would be able to settle down and focus on the task at hand. She does it with almost no effort and leaves most of them speechless. She truly is a wonderful companion and I have you to thank for harnessing her abilities to do what she was obviously born to do. Thanks Again.
