Over forty years ago I took my first basic obedience class from Doug & Michaelanne Johnson in the parking garage of the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs. One basic obedience class and I was hooked. Training dogs became a way of life for me.
In the fall of 1992 I began training retrievers full time at my field training facility in Calhan, Colorado. My personalized training program has trained over 30 AKC Master Hunters, several Master National Finalists, and Master National Hall of Fame dogs. I’ve trained dogs who have titled and placed in all levels of the AKC Retriever Field Trial program including Amateur Field Champion, Qualified All Age Retrievers, and dogs with Derby points. In 2015 one of my long time clients of 20 plus years, won the 2015 NAGDA National Pheasant Championship and placed 3rd with dogs I trained. In 2016 both of these dogs placed in the top four at the NAGDA National Pheasant Championship.
I have worked with clients for over 30 years and am now working with the second generations of these families.
I look forward to working with you and your dog. Together, we can accomplish great things with your dog.
Forty years after my first basic obedience class, I have returned to where it all started.
