George is an Owner and a Trainer.
George teaches group classes, private lessons and seminars in Obedience.
With interests in literature, semantics and theology, George used his love of language to develop a dialog-based approach to dog training. His first obedience dog, Scotch (Golden Retriever), earned the highest title in AKC competition, Obedience Trial Champion (OTCH) in 2002, and went on to repeat those same qualifications 6 more times. George and Scotch were invited twice to the prestigious AKC National Obedience Invitational. In 2006, the year Scotch retired from active trialing, he was ranked among the nation's Top 10 Goldens, despite having competed on only 7 occasions. George and Scotch also earned both the Agility Excellent (AX) and Agility Excellent Jumpers (AXJ) titles. Currently working with two Goldens (Helix and Rilly Rilly) and an English Springer Spaniel, Kwazy, George has also titled Great Pyrenees and Papillons in AKC obedience competition. When he's not working with dogs, George is usually reading or writing.
