Why or how did you become a dog trainer?
I owned Schwaby’s Pet Care for 12 years in Park City, Utah, where I would lead packs of dogs off-leash to run and socialize on the many Park City trails, which became a large part of my business. I wanted to become more knowledgeable about how to train dogs and owners to do these outdoor activities themselves.
What makes Utah a gifted trainer?
“Utah’s passion for dogs and the outdoors has defined his life for decades. His dedication to finding a deeper relationship with dogs and their people has benefited countless lives. For him to be able to trek through the Utah wilderness with a dozen off-leash dogs moving with his every step is a testament to his talents and special connection to dogs.” ~ Doug & Elizabeth
What are you passionate about in life outside dogs?
I am passionate about nature, animals, the great outdoors and the environment. I enjoy mountain biking, paddle boarding, skiing, tennis, crossfit, camping, mountaineering and adventuring to new and exciting places.
Where are you from?
I was born in California, and raised in Utah.
