Since I was a young boy, I have always loved to teach dogs. I started training sled dogs when I was nine years old. When I was twelve, I trained my first Collie, Duke, to pull me on my paper route. During this time, I was also working with my father training Labradors, throwing birds and training dogs to be steady to wing and shot. I trained and titled my first Field Champion Labrador when I was 23 years old.
In 1977, I was introduced to the Sport of Schutzhund and imported my first German Shepherd Dog. I attended numerous seminars and Schutzhund trials throughout the United States with German Teaching Judges. I joined the United Schutzhund Clubs of America in 1978 and started our club in Madison, Wisconsin in 1979. In 1983, I trained the Schutzhund III National Champion handler and dog team - Larry Caruso and Nitro - which was a dog Larry purchased from me as a puppy.
I love to teach new serious people to win in the sport! For the past several years, I have traveled around the country giving seminars to various clubs or individual training groups on tracking, protection. obedience and working with helpers on decoy work.
I have imported some of the most important Conformation and Working Bloodlines to come to America and have a tremendous working relationship with some of the best kennels in Germany.
