Gundogs, and specifically the versatile dogs, are my life! After doing this for more than 25 years, I couldn’t imagine a different path in life. I pride myself in helping owners and handlers realize the very best that their hunting partner can achieve. I’ve handled dogs at every level of NAVHDA successfully and trained and tested dogs in numerous JGHV tests both here stateside as well as in Germany, Denmark, and Sweden. All of this has only allowed me to develop a perspective that helps people and their dogs to become the best they can afield.
My many years of handling and training dogs has taught me, where there is success there can also be failure and where there is failure, there can be success. That may sound confusing but every dog reacts differently to program training and hunting and every handler learns differently when advised what to do. Always learn from your mistakes and take time to enjoy the success.
Nothing brings me more joy and satisfaction than seeing an owner and dog bond and succeed either in the field or during a test. My success is a dog’s or owner’s success.
I look forward to working with you and your dog to shape and realize your sporting and testing dreams.
