I am from Port Clinton, Ohio, now living in Chaffee, NY and own MuddyBay Retrievers. I am a member of Avery Outdoors Pro-Staff, Team Eukanuba, and Field Proven Calls Pro-Staff.
In 2003 I was very fortunate to meet and train with an experienced field trialer who helped me learn the ins and outs of competitive retriever training. I continue to watch, listen, and learn from successful trainers, using skills from each of them to develop my program for retriever training.
I have trained numerous dogs to all three levels of AKC hunt tests Junior, Senior, and Master, including my first retriever, Drake Hager MH who earned his AKC Master Hunter Title by the age of 3.
Training dogs for some of the biggest names in the waterfowl industry like Fred Zink of Zink Calls and Clay Hudnall of Field Proven Calls is something I take great pride in.
I enjoy to work with people and their dogs to help them develop the skills needed to be successful in the field.
