|I am a wildlife biologist for the Forest Service. I enjoying hunting,
training, competing and breeding my labs. My first lab was given to
me. It did not come from a reputable breeder and was severely
dysplastic by the age of 2. This began my education in the importance
of health clearances and choosing dogs from reputable breeders.
|My second lab was the foundation to my kennel. I enjoy working my
dogs in the field and am extremely fond of upland bird hunting. It is
a joy to work as a team with a well trained dog. This is what started
my interest in becoming involved in a hunt club and competing my dogs.
|In the past 25 years I have ran
AKC, NAHRA, UKC hunt tests,
AKC field trials and recently
APLA hunt tests. I have
personally put advanced titles on
several of my dogs. I enjoy the
art of dog training. Wanting to
become a better handler and
have a better understand of dogs
and training, I began soliciting
the help from professional dog
trainers. Since that time I have
began training and running my
dogs in Derby and Qaulifying
stakes at AKC field trials.
