Duke in Action

"This is such a great help. Thanks a lot. I've been training my Belgian Malinois for weeks of fetching but he still runs away with it from me. Didn't know a leash can help me out. Thanks again."

A Story of a Man and His Dog

I was born with a passion for the outdoors and animals both wild and domestic. At the age of 12 I knew I wanted to work with animals. I have been training dogs for hunting and retrieving since the age of 13. I attended College to become a Fish and Wildlife Technician and Conservation Officer. While attending The Atlantic Police Academy’s Conservation Enforcement program in PEI, I was placed as a Conservation Officer in Nova Scotia where I had the privilege to work with the departments K9 Unit. It was one of the best experiences of my life and increased my desire to work with dogs at all levels.

Certifications & Training

Upon graduating from Canada West Canine Centre I received a certification in Canine Obedience & Kennel Management as well as becoming a certified Master Trainer. My fourth certification in dog training was at the No Limitations school for Dog Trainers now called Sit means Sit in Colorado and Las Vegas and I am certified in the specialized humane use of a remote collar.I've spent the past 27 years studying dog training methods and applications from some of the best dog trainers and schools around the world and continue to do so. I am the first Canadian to certify in the use of the K9 BSD (Behavior Shaping Device). I am the creator of Dog Training Genesis, a comprehensive, interactive step by step dog training and rehabilitation video training program that is helping people all over the world produce great training results with their dogs.

NePoPo Training

I am the first Canadian to certify in the use of the K9 BSD (Behaviour Shaping Device) for passive alert training for scent detection dogs.

In 2015 I attended Bart Bellon’s NePoPo School for dog trainers in Belgium. For three weeks I studied and trained one on one with Bart and Michael Bellon. After passing all tests I became a certified NePoPo trainer.

I am the owner / CEO and master trainer of Unleashed Potential K9 Academy. At the UPK9 Academy I train professional dog trainers who want to start their own Unleashed Potential business and location while working hands on with people and their dogs from day light until dark. I also provide a Trainer / Shadow program.
