Mark Van Zee

Lincoln, NE

BACKGROUND

Mark owns and operates Drake Creek Kennels in Lincoln, NE. A retriever training kennel with a focus on Hunt Test level retrievers & waterfowl hunting dogs. He began training retrieves in high school where he hunted waterfowl along the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies. His love for retrievers & the sport of waterfowling sparked his interest in field trail and hunt test level retrievers.

After a successful career as an amateur handler campaigning his own dogs, he ventured into training client dogs. He currently competes in both AKC & HRC/UKC Hunt Tests & will run an occasional field trial. He is also President of the Salt Valley Hunting Retriever Club. Vice President of the Nebraska Dog & Hunt Club as well as a AA Finished Level Judge in the HRC.

WHY I USE SPORTDOG BRAND

I use SportDOG Brand because of the toughness and reliability of the product. This, combined with their reputation for excellent customer service makes them an easy choice!

FAVORITE PRODUCTS

My favorite product is the SD-2525. It's the prefect training collar with its wide range in stimulation levels that can be easily adjusted on the fly while training. And the "quick buttons" for high, medium & low allow me to quickly choose a stimulation level I need immediately without fooling with a dial.
