In 2005 I had the great fortune to meet one of the most experienced and knowledgeable trainers in the world of dogs. It was then that I met Steve House. At the time, I had no idea how much impact he would have on my endeavor, but I am forever grateful to him for his patience, and for being so generous with his time, knowledge, and experience. I trained under his mentoring for nearly 10 years. Every single time I worked with him I learned something new. He is a wealth of knowledge. He has traveled the world, training, competing, and learning himself. Even after over 30+ years, he understands that there is no point at which you know it all.
I work each dog that I intend to breed. I have strong and honest trainers evaluate character, heart, strengths and weaknesses, and I believe this type of assessment is essential in a breeding program. There is no perfect dog, but it is important to have an honest evaluation of a breeding dog in order to try to match them appropriately.
