I have been a waterfowl hunter since a young age. Growing up in farm country in south central Minnesota with the family yellow lab.
Starting with small pond hunts and now big water for those diver ducks.
Just after high school I joined the Dokken Family at Oak Ridge Kennels in Northfield MN, the largest gun dog training kennel in the upper half of the United States. Now 20 years later, I am able to follow my passion as an all-breed trainer, seminar speaker, N.A.S.H.D.A. world championship judge, and professional guide.
Why I Use SportDOG Brand
SportDOG products are extremely durable, waterproof, and reliable. They offer many options to fit any training needs.
There are many favorite E-collars in my toolbox. Every day training with the SD-2525, SD-1825XCAMO for long days in the duck boat, and the small SD-425X for my seminars.
