OUR STAFF

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 and Exercise (3-3.5 miles) every day. His cattle dog RED is always with him and is an excellent example of 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.

Marina’s shy hound mix likes to play hard-to-get with her new friends, but she never wants to miss out on the fun! If there are other dogs nearby, she wants to be the first to meet them and welcome them into the pack.
