Why I started training dogs: When you get older and still want to compete in something that you love to do, this is it! Plus I met my wife doing agility and met some really nice people and it all started from there.
Fun Facts: I'm very lucky to be married to someone who shares the same passion for training dogs. We have some very fun and energetic dogs that are really amazing to watch and I love sharing what they can do with Purina.
Training Tip: Keeping your training sessions short, fun, and positive will get you further. The dogs will pay attention and learn a lot quicker.
