Dog Trainer, Combat Veteran, Father

Like you, I am a lifelong learner. I have seen the word success defined many ways. Is it the attainment of popularity or profit? Or is success meant only for the chosen few, a mystical secret, or is there a different story?
With 15 years of active duty, National Guard and Reserve Army experience, my view of success is different. Success is not an isolated event or a title for one. Instead, success increases when your peace of mind and feeling of security are finally realized with a protector that you can rely on.
Like you, I am also a family man. So I understand the importance of having dogs that are safe and stable around your home. As a father of eight, I can appreciate the chaos that can sometimes occur in your home, and I train my dogs accordingly.
