Tell us more about what you do.

During the day I work with community members to ensure clean drinking water and safety for the community. My off time is spent working and training my German Shorthaired Pointer for NAVHDA trials and overall hunting performance. I actively participated in the Michigan NAVHDA chapter where we meet and collectively help versatile dog trainers at all levels reach their goals.

What gets you pumped up every day about what you do?

When it comes to my dog, the challenge is what pumps me up. knowing the potential that she has and wanting to do whatever I can to unlock it. ultimately seeing the success of time put in and being able to learn and work from others makes it all worth while.

What goals have you not accomplished?

My goal for my dog is to reach the NAVHDA invitational. But, my ultimate goals is to get my dog to the best she can be and enjoy the experience of watching the dog work with friends and family.

What keeps you up at night in pursuit of your goals?

As a trainer for my dog, the thing that keeps me up at night is the thought of making sure I do things right to make her better and not take steps back.

What do you love most about the Dakota 283 products?

What I love most about the Dakota 283 products is the durability and safety they provide. After being in a terrible accident, if it weren't for the durability of the kennel my dog may not still be here today.
