We have been training dogs professionally since 1996.  During this time we have had the privilege of handling almost every breed imaginable.  For upland, waterfowl, and obedience.  Whether its a 3 lb maltese or a 150 lb mastiff, we have been able to turn each and every one of them into wonderful family companions.  Our gun dog program is second to none.  We raise all our own game birds to assure that your future hunting companion will have every opportunity possible to learn how to hunt wild birds.


Our shed antler recovery dogs have been featured on the Sportsman Channel, as well as Michigan Out of Doors Television.  For the past several years we have been the featured dog trainer for Field and Stream throughout the Midwest on how to train your shed dog.
