As long as I can remember I've been around dogs. I trained my first dog at twelve years old. German Short Hair Pointer for hunting. I train now in Schutzhund and American Street Ring. My male, Bentley, is titled in Schutzhund ASR and in AKC obedience. He was injured befor I had a chance for his SchH3.His titles are, SchH2, ASR entery level,CGC, HIC, National Team Obedience winner in AKC 2001.I have a female now that's 16 months old and she is VERY promising.
