Ben may be one of the newer members of our team, but he has proven himself to be a wonderful asset and came to us with a solid knowledge of basic obedience and Police K9 functions. He grew up in Maine in a very dog-friendly family and started training his family dogs, which spiked an interest in training as a possible career choice. He served in the military for 6 years as a Military Police officer in Arlington, during which time he had the opportunity to work alongside military working dogs and their handlers. After retiring from the military Ben decided to stay in the NOVA area and came to work for us in January of 2018.
Ben’s military and prior dog training experience facilitated his graduation from our dog trainer program and that experience also adds much needed structure to his training style along with a personality every dog has approved of!
