Dan’s wife Gloria earned her masters degree in Behaviour Science, and puts the starting foundation on all the young dogs – from obedience to field basics.
Working together, Dan and Gloria have put together a successful, consistent and flexible program that gives handlers and their dogs the knowledge and experience to run with confidence.
