I'm an Electrical Engineer by trade and a Dog Trainer by preference.

I've been training dogs for the better part of 25 years in one manner or another. For 9 of those I ran a Labrador Retriever in Field Trials with NAHRA. Since then I have trained dogs for Upstate Guide dogs where I raised a puppy and eventually became puppy boot camp for the ones that needed a bit more focus in their training or were more than their raiser could handle.

I currently have 2 Yellow Labs that are certified Therapy Dogs and one more Yellow Lab that is training for Search and Rescue.

I've been a member of Wealthy Affiliate University since 2010 and am trying to establish a presence online that will help people to find the products and information that they are searching for.

Thanks for listening.
