I have been training dogs for 20+ years, and I trained horses before that. Mike always worked so that I could train, and in 2015 he was able to quit his job and work full time at the kennel. We were able to expand the kennel, as well as take on more competition dogs. We are looking forward to another expansion as well.
The biggest question we get asked is “How do you do it? How do you spend THAT much time together and still get along???” LOL! It’s hard to answer that because we just do. We didn’t used to... in fact, it has gotten better and better over the years, I guess that’s why it was such an easy decision for him to quit his job and work with the dogs full time.
While he is still learning the intricacies about bird dog training, Mike is doing a wonderful job with the obedience dogs that we get in to train, and I am sure he will excel with the bird dogs as well. He asks questions all the time, and that is the only way to learn!
Besides training dogs, we have been able to do more wild bird hunting than we ever had time for before, and that has been amazing.
Looking forward to many more years as a TEAM HARDWOOD!
