a Passion and gift

Dillon (owner/founder/head trainer) discovered his passion and gift for caring for animals when he got his first dog, Star, at the age of seven, Star was a German Shepherd. Years later while Dillon was living in Los Angeles working in Music, he found himself missing something: the selfless companionship of dogs.

That's when Gunner, an energetic German Shepherd, entered his life. He worked with Gunner and multiple trainers in the Los Angeles area for over 3 years to build a strong foundation of obedience and protection. Dillon found that training dogs was his calling in life, and that he had a natural talent for it. Dillon then purchased another German Shepherd named Kirah and bred her. After selling the entire litter and developing relationships with the new owners he began training the dogs once they were ready.

In January 2019, Dillon completed one of the nation’s top dog trainers’ schools where he lived and went to school full time. This experience drastically improved his training skill set and conceptual understanding of canines.

He participated in all phases of training and client interaction, and excelled in pet training, competition obedience, competition AKC Hunt Test, specific odor detection, protection, and dog/human aggression management at the end of his time. Dillon not only had his professional training, he also trained over 50 pet dogs, successfully rescued and trained a dog through Needy Paws rescue while then having the dog adopted out to his forever home. Helped with working dogs and achieved an AKC Hunt Test Junior Title on his black lab puppy, Joker on his first birthday. Dillon later went on to work under long time pro Chris Akin down in Arkansas dealing with up to 130 dogs in the kennel at a time. Since school Dillon has successfully trained over 100 pet dogs, raised and sold two black labs to the depart of defense for detection work. Dillon is currently raising a Belgian Malinos puppy (Trower) for competition. Along with 2 black labs in hopes that he will also be able to place them go on to work for the depart of defense in detection. Dillon is currently being coached by world level competitors and continues to further his education every chance he gets by attending and traveling to different seminars. He plans to compete in IGP formerly known as Schutzhound/IPO along with AKC Hunt Tests, Dillon is part of a local IGP club.

"There is nothing more rewarding than taking a dog to it’s full potential. I’ve seen first hand how improving a dog and their owners relationship with the proper communication and training can literally save lives."

Reviews From Our Wonderful Customers

“Hi, I rescued a German Shepherd/Husky mix. My husband is a cop so I went to the police station and talked to the local police department for help finding a trainer. One of the k9 officers recommended Dillon. I met Dillon and the k9 officer at their competition practice Tuesday evening and Dillon evaluated my dog right there on the spot. We ended up signing up for private lessons and started meeting 3x a week for a half hour each. During this time I decided it would be best due to my work schedule to do a 2 month board and train. Dillon took Max everywhere with him. Through his training I can see his fear of men becoming less and less. As a rescued dog, I was not sure how he was treated prior to becoming part of our family. Max had no boundaries or rules. Dillon has helped the transition process with helping Max learn in such a short period of time. Dillon is always answering all of my questions and has even provided articles and videos. We still see Dillon at his local public group classes that he holds twice a week. I recommend Dillon to my friends and family.”
