About Brian

Dog training has been one of Brian's passions for more then 30 years and his wide range of dog training services incorporate as much positive reinforcement as possible. While living in Southern California, Brian trained with Southwest Search Dogs and trained his own dogs to track as well as worked with Better By The Pound, a rescue that focuses on rehabilitating canines with behavioral issues. He also volunteered at Paws of Coronado, a no kill shelter where he worked to help reverse negative patterns in shelter dogs so they would be well-mannered and adoptable.

Since 2010, Brian's  main focus has been on canine nose work. He has been traveling the western states to compete with his canine team and has logged a number of titles in K9 Nose Work events. This June, Brian is co-hosting his first
Nose Work Trial along with  Nose Work Detectives.  In his spare time, Brian and his dog Bella, a certified therapy dog, volunteer doing hospice work as well as reading programs for children.

Brian currently lives in Grants Pass Oregon with his four dogs, three of which were rescued off the streets plus his young border collie boy who came from a breeder in Williams, Oregon. All of Brian's dogs are trained at different levels of scent work as well as livestock herding.
