Tellus Calhoun grew up moving back and forth between Louisiana and Northern California always wanting to have dogs but never being allowed to. When he was old enough to finally have a dog, he never looked back. Calhoun trained dogs for hunt tests and field trials and ended up moving to Oregon because of its temperate climate so he could train and compete year round. Now retired, the legendary dog trainer sat down with us at Charlton Duck Club to talk about his life as a professional dog trainer, avid hunter and being Black in the outdoors.
