I’m “just a mere” dog trainer! Hmmm – it’s hard to write about yourself. Let’s see, I love to train my dogs and we mostly do field work in preparation for hunting and hunt tests. I love when a Lab’s natural instincts kick in for the first time!
But I also train in obedience and rally and tracking and have dabbled in agility and even the show ring. In that regard I’m more like owners of Golden Retrievers. Although Labrador Retrievers are multi-talented, most Lab owners tend to train for only one or maybe two venues. I like to train my dogs for anything they might enjoy.
I also like raising puppies. Because Labs have been the most popular breed in America for over a decade, there is a lot of variety. I believe in trying to retain their essence – Hunting Labs with Classic Looks. My dogs tend to be somewhat in between the tall, slender field Lab and the shorter, stocky show Lab.
As they say, “Life’s too short to hunt with an ugly dog.”
