BRIAN KERCHNER

Brian's ability to 'read' dogs (and people) allows him to quickly get to the root cause of a dog's behavior problems and immediately begin resolving the issue. Brian practices what he preaches with his own pack: Leadership & Exercise (3+ miles) every day. His dogs are always with him to help him demonstrate the ideal Leader-Follower relationship between human and dog.

SAILOR

Marina’s Chesapeake Bay Retriever is the cool kid from school: he doesn’t need more friends, but all the other dogs want to follow him around. He might play with them IF he isn’t too busy swimming or playing fetch.
