Seth's journey to becoming a professional dog trainer may not be far different than most, but his experiences as a professional are quite unique.
As far as he can remember, Seth has had a love for animals and a special connection with dogs. He grew up in the heart of central Missouri, where prime duck and goose hunting was right out the back door. Waterfowl hunting and the extreme love of his family Labradors, ignited a passion for retrievers that drives him to this day.
As a professional dog trainer, Seth has over 15 years experience training dogs for obedience, waterfowl & upland hunting, AKC Hunt Tests &Field Trials, and has even had the great honor of training detection dogs for the United States Military.
Seth has been fortunate enough to work with and for some of the best retriever trainers in the history of the sport. He has spent time working under notable trainers: Tom Sorenson (Retriever Hall of Fame), Rick Stawski, Jim Van Engen, and Andy Attar, each of whom have taught Seth many valuable lessons. Lessons on dog training and on running the business. Over the years, many of Seth's pupils have gone on to win titles in AKC Hunt Tests and Field Trials to include: Junior Hunter, Senior Hunter, Master Hunter, Derby List, Qualified All-Age, Amateur Field Champion, Field Champion, and even a National Amateur Field Champion.
