In August of 2006, after 28 years of working at the local battery company, I decided to retire to devote my attention to training and breeding labs. Because of my flexible schedule, I was able to train nearly everyday.
I started training retrievers by training my own dog using books and videos. Over the past years I have learned many new techniques that a retriever needs to be a good companion and hunting partner. I have had many mentors along the way and I give kudos to all of them. They have all made a HUGE impact in our lives with their extensive knowledge of breeding and training labrador retrievers. In August 2009, I began working and training with Randy Bohn of Rammin' Retrievers. Again, I've learned an enormous amount of information from him. We have been members of various clubs in previous years.
I am an avid outdoorsman and I enjoy all types of hunting. My wife, Deb, is my support team and cheerleader. She works at our local university full-time, and then manages to find time to help with training and all the other paperwork involved with D & S Retrievers....PLUS keep our household running smoothly.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
