Whether we’re your first choice or a last resort, Koru K9 will ensure that your canine companion is the perfect addition to your pack.

I have spent my entire life learning about and training dogs. Starting at a young age with  4H, I progressed on to training for competition obedience, then later protection dogs with  Project Safe Run in the late 80s and early 90s. After graduating college I began a successful  career as a Computer Programmer, but continued to foster my love of dog training, and  increase my knowledge base, spending much of my spare time training and competing with  dogs in French Ring, MondioRing, Schutzhund, PSA, NADF, Herding, Agility, Obedience,  Tracking, Weight Pull, Flyball and other venues. 

When time permitted I also took in the occasional board and train dogs for clients, ran  private and group obedience classes, and have coached many competitive teams in a variety  of venues, helping them overcome obedience and/or behavioral issues that were preventing  their dogs from excelling. 

Over the years I have owned a wide variety of breeds, including Dobermann (my first love),  Giant Schnauzer, Rottweiler, Beauceron, Boxer, APBT, Am Staff, Jack Russell Terrier, and  Belgian Shepherd Dogs, AKA Malinois and Tervuren. The Malinois eventually became my  primary breed of choice, although I do still dabble on occasion with other breeds. 

I have walked on the trial field over 400 times in over 12 different venues and and put over  100 titles on various dogs, most titles requiring 2-3 legs to complete. My personal dogs  have been the #1 dog in the Nation in both French Ring and Herding, in addition to winning  local and regional trials in many venues. I’ve been a founding member of a number of sport  dog clubs, held office in local and nationals clubs, and hosted numerous seminars and  demonstrations. As a breeder I have produced dogs that have won Regional, National and  World Championships, worked for the military and police, earned numerous performance  and working sport titles, worked as ranch dogs and medical assistance dogs, protected their  owners from assault, and even finished a few conformation championships. 

I believe that learning never stops, and have attended numerous seminars over the years,  and continue to soak up knowledge wherever I can find it. When time permitted over the  years I also took in the occasional board and train dogs for clients, ran private and group  obedience classes, and have coached many competitive teams in a variety of venues, helping them overcome obedience and/or behavioral issues that were preventing their dogs  from excelling.
