Ron Stevenson
Inducted: 2001

Ron Stevenson, one of the founding members of the New England Brittany Championship Association, was a shining example of what a bird dog field trialer should be. Ron was an outgoing, friendly, caring person who dedicated a great part of his life to the betterment of the Brittany and field trials. For over fifty years, Ron was involved as an owner, breeder, trainer, handler, judge, and club official on both the regional and national level. No task was too menial when it came to the sport; he would do whatever was needed, from cutting and hauling brush to preparing and giving a presentation to the state or federal officals; he did it all with class.

His kennel, -Rondo Britts - was always well respected and produced many quality (AKC) Dual Champions. (His kennel shared the record for the most Dual Champions ie:5 with HOF Kent Lipsey.) He was not content to be successful with only his own dogs; Ron's contribution to the dogs and the sport involved developing new arenas for dogs, people, and clubs to use for future competition. His support to many New England clubs is wellknown but his effort in starting the Northern New England Brittany Club, the New England Brittany Championship Association and the Sharpe's Farm field trial area in New Hampshire were endeavors that improved the future of bird dogs and the sport.
