Butch’s K9Pro Sports is the first dog discipline done by an American to be adopted by European countries and even Australia. Butch is also the creator of the Western Shepherd project, which has recreated the German shepherd breed into the healthy, trainable breed it was one hundred years ago.

DAVE & KIM

Dave is soft spoken so listen carefully. You can learn so much with Dave’s quiet approach to dog handling and training. Talk to Dave if you are interested in learning how to improve your dog’s manners, and how to work with your dog and not against him.
