I love dogs and dog training, they're my life.

When not training dogs at Free Range Boarding, I am  the Training Director of a local Schutzhund club and an active Schutzhund (IPO/IGP) sportsman and training decoy. I am also the proud owner of two German Shepherds (show and working lines) and a mini dachshund.

I started training dogs in Russia when I was a child. I had a couple mixed-breed dogs that I was taking to obedience classes. After that period I was without a dog in my life for quite some time. I always felt like something was missing.

When I ended my beach volleyball career, I decided to take up dog training again. I read tons of books, watched training videos, learned different training methods and attended a lot of seminars taught by the most successful trainers and sportsman.

I have trained my dogs to achieve titles in CGC, BH and Schutzhund (with best in Obedience trial). I have also helped numerous owners train their dogs and help solve behavior problems.

My goal is to help owners better understand their dogs, learn to read their body language and communicate with them in a way that makes everyone's life more enjoyable.
