When I got into dog training, I didn't have the access to information that we have available now days. I shadowed other trainers, I read books, attended seminars and ordered dog training VHS tapes from a Leerburg catalog I got in the mail... It’s amazing how much not only dog training has evolved but the way we can access information and become better faster with this new technology. I used to have to wait weeks or even months to get a video or attend a seminar about something I wanted to learn and now in a matter of minutes I can access it through Leerburg, watch a video on line and if I have questions I can contact the trainer or send them what I’m doing for a critique. I’ve watched a video on Leerburg and in the same day applied what I learned with a client. I know this probably sounds silly to a savvy internet guy but to me, this is an amazing tool not only for people wanting to get their dogs trained but for trainers as well. This has really helped my business and it’s cool to see a company that I grew up learning from not only stay relevant but be a leader in the field of dog training… And now I get to be a part of it!!!
I’m going to work hard to make some great classes through Leerburg. I still can’t believe I’m here with this incredible team of dog trainers. All these guys are amazing and bring a unique set of skills to the table. I look up to them and now I get to work with them. It’s literally a dream come true.
Other that dog training, I love the outdoors. I hike, fish and camp whenever I can. I have a vegetable garden, I mountain bike and an 18 month old son that is my world.
