- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a student of Michael D’Abruzzo, founder of the Foundation Style Dog Training system, and owner of K9-1 Specialized Dog Training. I have studied the behavior of wolves in the wild, wolves in captivity, and domesticated dogs to better understand how dogs communicate and how to train them in a way that is easy for them because it doesn’t go against their instincts and behaviors but uses them to our advantage.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been working around dogs my whole life. I came home from the hospital to two dogs. I’ve NEVER not had dogs. I’ve been training dogs as a serious hobby for years but never knew if I could do it professionally with a wife and six kids. Then, one day, I came across a quote from an inspirational speaker, Kevin Claiborne, who said “Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle nor your lifestyle around your career.” That inspired me to chase my dream.
