I fell into the wonderful world of dogs through meeting my beautiful wife, Carrie. I met Carrie, and this fantastic business of hers, in 2011, shortly after graduating from the United States Coast Guard Academy, at my first operational unit onboard the Coast Guard Cutter Venturous, home ported in St. Petersburg, FL.
During my time in the Coast Guard I had the privilege of learning about dogs by conducting several operations and training with canines. I conducted Counter Drug Operations onboard vessels in the Caribbean as the Lead Boarding Officer with the Drug Enforcement Agency Canine Units and during my second tour at the Maritime Security Response Team where I was the Explosive Detection Canine Officer, responsible for the readiness of 3 teams in Maritime Counter Terrorism Operations.
I am now full time at The Doghouse, LLC running operations and enjoying the benefits of working with dogs.
