The world of “Dog Obedience” first caught my attention in 1964, just after I moved to Canada from Britain. I have raised and trained three generations of Conformation and Utility titled Dobermans as well as a Canadian and American UD Border Collie named “Crash”.
I have been a member of the Hamilton Dog Obedience Club for over 30 years and an obedience judge since 1970. Over the years I have had the good fortune to judge many obedience trials and tournaments in Canada, the United States, Bermuda and Japan.
I share my life with Susan Garrett and our 6 dogs: Shelby, Stoni, Twister, Buzz, Quid and DeCaff. In September of 2000 I took an early retirement from my position as an Instrument Maker at a Cancer Research and Treatment Centre and now spend my time busily keeping things running here at Say Yes Dog Training.
