About Woodland Kennel

Hunting Dog Training

For some, upland and waterfowl seasons are dates circled in red on the calendar. For me, it is a passion I get to live all year long.  I have been blessed with the passion to work harder than most and the ability to bring out the best in every dog I work with, no matter their pedigree.  The endless hours we put into the dogs daily is just as rewarding as the time we spend hunting.

Over 18 years ago, my passion for hunting dogs led me to a lifelong commitment to learning everything there is to know about training hunting dogs.  Unfortunately, at that time, the Internet was still in its infancy, and the availability of information was NOT a few clicks away like it is today.  So my wife and I decided to start an online magazine and eCommerce site dedicated to helping folks get the information and products they need to advance their dogs in and out of the field.  What I didn’t know at the time was how successful GundogsOnline.com was going to become and different my life would become. 

Now my days are spent in the field sharing my love of dogs with clients from all over the country and/or competing in AKC / UKC Hunting Tests and Field Trials.  Nothing fuels my passion for this sport more than the relationships I build with clients and their dogs.  I understand that clients have entrusted me with their four-legged family members, and I don’t take that lightly, not even for a second.  I promise to make every effort to get clients actively involved in the training process, including group and one-on-one lessons.

I co-own and operate Woodland Kennel with my wife, Dana.  Together we bring more than 35 years of dog training and breeding experience to clients.  One of our favorite quotes is by Immanuel Kant, “We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of  animals.”  We will always do right by the dog no matter what!  I thank you for your interest in our family business and all the dogs we have touched.
