Comments:Specializes in starting young dogs. Generally holds clinics style lessons where new handlers can meet other handlers, exchange ideas, and find other places to work their dogs. Also takes lessons by appointment and provides "in house" training. Suggested "in house" training time is for one to three months, afterwhich the handler is encourages to take lessons and learn to work with the dog. The farm has a training ring, open fields, and woods. Good pressure points for training older dogs in tricky situations.

Do You Take Young Dogs in for Training? Not normally. If I've been working with a dog and handler for lessons, then I might take that dog in for boarding AND training for periods up to a month or so.
Comments: I guess the only other point that should be made is how long I've been training dogs. I started training scent hounds (Beagles and Coonhounds) and the pointer/setter hunting breeds (German Shorthaired Pointers and English Setters) in 1960. Back then, I trained strictly for hunting. I started training Border Collies for stock work in 1985. Also, the easiest way to get in touch with me is via email. I am so rarely near a phone that it's hard to reach me that way, and harder still to make an appointment that way.
