Don is as well known for his skills in the training of "Dog
Trainers" as he
is for training dogs. His love for dogs and animals is only
his love for family and life itself.
Don was raised in a small logging town near Seattle, Washington.
after graduating from college with a degree in Forestry,
he moved to
Missoula, Montana to go to work for a private timber company.
It was there
that he got involved with the Western Montana Retriever Club

Don now lives about 50 miles north of Missoula. He employs
trainer and various part-time help. Together, they train
20 - 30 dogs daily

Don's main focus has always been Field Trial Competition

the basic foundation for all dogs is the same; only the demands
of application vary.
