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 am 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. But most of my excursions are chasing after waterfowl in Berks and Lehigh County from September through late January. I enjoy taking friends out in the field to experience the awesome goose hunts that we have been fortunate to encounter.
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.
