I have a passion for Schutzhund training. Let me help you achieve your goals!
I got started in Schutzhund after googling a hobby “schutzhund” from a person in an online forum. Once I saw I could do this type of training with my personal dogs, I was hooked. I had always liked police K9’s or Military dogs, but had no idea this was something you could do with your own dogs. I have been training in schutzhund since 2005. I am a professional dog trainer and certified Canine Behavior & Training Specialist. I am always improving and learning about dog training theories, and principles. I have been involved in the sport of schutzhund for over 15 years and have trained and earned 32 Sch Titles with 12 different dogs at the local, regional, and National competition level.
I know what it takes to actually earn titles. There is a big difference in titling one dog and titling multiple dogs with varying genetics and temperaments, and actually showing a dog in a trial and not just training highlight videos.
I have trained with a variety of world-class trainers, and have a lot of different training theories, tips, and tricks I’ve picked up from all the great trainers I’ve had a privilege of working with, attending seminars, etc. I have a passion for clear communication working with dogs and achieving the best results that I can.
With my experience as a handler, club trainer, helper, I have been successful in figuring out the best method for many dogs and their handlers to achieve success as a team.
Consistent Controlled Conflict.
My goal is to provide quality and thorough Schutzhund training information. I believe in a simplified modern approach to dog training. I believe and train in the most effective and simple approach possible I can for each dog while earning the maximum amount of points. I believe in finding what works for the individual dog and their handlers abilities. Sometimes what I would do with a dog, isn’t what’s going to work for a particular handler.
Proven and Consistent Results
There is a big difference in looking good in training and actually getting titles. There are a lot of people that talk about training, and how good this or that is, but they haven’t actually applied it to a dog, trialed and earned the titles, or coached and had students earn the titles either. I have a history of proven results for my own dogs and student’s I’ve helped coach.
