Dogs have always been part of my life- through all the things I've done and places I've lived- dogs have been by my side. The've kept me going through some of life's saddest moments... and given me some of my most glorious experiences... Ever...
My original love is Search and Rescue though, I've had SAR dogs since the 1980's. Today I running a hugely successful dog training company with four full-time trainers including myself because of that foundation so long ago.
I'm a DHS/FEMA Certified Urban Search and Rescue Canine Search Specialist Dog Handler, Evaluator and Mentor since 1994.
Certified American Police Canine Association Cadaver Dog Handler
I've deployed to many Federal disaster situations across the US, most notably Dorian, Katrina and the World Trade Center. And...been a Canadian Nationals Schutzhund Sport competitor too. I've titled titled dogs in just about everything out there you can get a title in. Over the years, my dogs have been featured in Animal Planet's Hero Dogs of 9/11, appearing in SuperPower Dogs (Imax) and as guest on Today's Show with Search and Rescue K9 partner Logan after 9/11 tragedy in 2001 when the whole world stood still and all hearts broke as one.
That's the fancy stuff- so you can know the level of experience and accomplishment, (and success) I'm coming from. Between here and Canada, I've worked with 1,000's of dogs. My true gift in dogs is understanding and changing behavior...for the better. But the most important part of that is being able to TEACH it... to PEOPLE.
Its even our registered trademark-
