Steve Miller

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.
