During Ryan's very successful career as a Professional Retriever Trainer and owner of Long Hollow Retrievers he developed the passion, wisdom, understanding, and patience that it takes to train the great Retrievers that complete our team as Waterfowl Hunters. His love for the process above all, along with his competitive nature and desire to share has led him to the mentoring of other aspiring Dog Trainers and to the production of Long Hollow Outdoors TV. Before hanging up his whistle from full time Hunt Test and Gun Dog Retriever training Ryan Fortier developed and trained many AKC Junior, Senior and Master Hunter Retrievers including two Master National Qualifiers in "Mac" and "Delta". Ryan is now the Editor and Producer of Long Hollow Outdoors TV where he spends most his free time behind the camera and helping youngsters find their way as Dog Trainers and Waterfowl Hunters.
