If Your Retriever Could Talk!

or "If You Could Read Their Mind!"
(A slide show of 65 pictures with captioning)

This DVD was produced for sale to raise money for two organizations that need and deserve support for the positive impact they have on people not only in WNY but throughout the entire country and abroad.  City Church of Batavia, NY has a project that has been put on hold for several years due to concentrating their resources to helping others.  Roswell Park Cancer Institute's reputation speaks for itself!  Both of these organizations save lives and souls on a daily basis.  ALL profits will go directly to City Church and Roswell Park.  Price for the DVD is $18 which includes taxes and shipping.

During my early days of working with retrievers, I used to wonder, "what is that dog thinking?"  That was the beginning of an attitude that has played a big part in the development of the techniques I use in training.  God Blessed me with the ability to quickly determine the dog's personality and apply whatever action needed to manipulate the animal into building up the confidence and desire to please and perform as he/she was bred to do.  As the years have passed and the memories continue to accumulate, I find myself not only wondering what the dog is thinking, but what would happen if they could talk.  The more pictures I looked at and the situations the dog was exposed to, the more I started imagining some funny remarks or thoughts that particular animal may have had at the time.  It's amazing at some of the things we demand and ask of our four legged hunting partner.

I decided to put this DVD together for the purpose of putting a smile on the face of all you retriever owners.  As you look at each picture, it will produce memories of similar situations you and your retriever have shared.  Share this with your family, hunting partners and new dog owners.  It may change the way you think of your dog and even the attitude in which you handle him.  Like I tell all my clients and friends, "the first thing you need to learn about the training and handling process with your retriever, is to smile and laugh a lot"!

Introducing Andy

Andy and Roy I realized my love for dogs, ducks, and all things related to the great outdoors at a young age when my brother and I would join our father afield pursuing waterfowl and upland birds.  Hunting alongside a dog, for us, was a way of life.  This was the spark which ignited my love of working with dogs that would see me into my adult life.  Several years ago I began to work alongside Jim, and following in his footsteps each dog I work with has a training program which is customized to that animal's individual needs.  By reading the dog's unique personality I can ensure that it is handled in a way that fosters success rather than using a "cookie cutter" approach.  I believe that all dogs are capable of doing what they were bred to do providing we as their owners and handlers help them understand exactly what we are demanding of them. 

At this time, I am handling all new clients seeking full time training as well as most private sessions for obedience work, while Jim continues to work with his existing clientele for full time training and offers private sessions for gundogs.  When not working with dogs and their owners, I assist Jim with videography, his popular Companion Retriever Hunting Challenge, and seminars/appearances.  I am a field staffer for DT Systems and Dakota Decoy Company, and also a member of Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, and the North American Hunting Retriever Association.  Additionally, I am licensed by NYSDEC as a Leashed Tracking Dog Handler and can assist with the recovery of wounded deer.  Each year I can be found handling my own dogs in AKC, NAHRA, and other independent hunt tests.  These dogs (a male yellow Labrador and a male Golden Retriever) are both available as studs to approved females. 

My wife and 3 children are never far from my side, and we treat this world of dogs and ducks as a family affair.  I look forward to using my knowledge and talents to help anyone seeking assistance.
