DaveI started his passion in 1999 with his first lab and worked with other trainers to learn how to train and run AKC Hunt tests. He purchased his first pointing lab in 2002 and have began working with them since. In 2004 he became a pro trainer and picked up his first sponsor, Sportdog and remains a pro staffer for them. In early 2005 Dave gave up his career in criminal justice to work full time as a dog trainer and breeder. He has spent numerous falls hunting birds and dog handling in South Dakota. He owned a small hunting preserve in Southern California for 4 years and has consulted for other clubs on set up and dog needs. The past five years has been spent with Ron Soden (Fongeo Kennels) learning his training program for short hairs and applying his techniques to train the pointing lab. Dogs are his passion and he strives to be the best. He takes great pride in the breedings he has produced.
