Introduction to Gundogs
I was first introduced to upland hunting when I was a kid. My dad had English Springers, and GSP’s. Later on, I was introduced to the Drahthaar where I fell in love with the breed. My step dad (Scott) had two Drahthaars; Chief and Hillie that I’ve hunted over for many of years.
Pine Hill and Background
I first started at Pine Hill in 2011 and then ended up moving to Hawaii where I joined the Army. I was an Apache Helicopter Mechanic for 7 years, did one tour in Afghanistan, and was stationed in Washington State for most of my military career. I then moved back in 2019 to finish my bachelors degree at GVSU in Occupational Health & Safety and was hired back at Pine Hill.
When I moved back to Michigan, I wanted another Drahthaar. I ended up getting “Lux” in March of 2019 and have completed the Versatile Junior Puppy Test(VJP), Fall Utility Test (HZP), and in April will be the Breed Show with her. I’ve learned a great deal training my dog Lux from both “Scotts” in my life and definitely will be applying it for another in the future.
