About the picture above: This is myself and Brinks. Brinks was given to me 2.5 years ago by my friend, Brinks is a 8 yr young boy, he is the best gift anyone could ever give me.
Being a retired working dog I tried a few different things to see what “he” enjoyed the most. I have never tracked before and heard of Gary through my friend Ginny who tracked with Gary prior. I called him and he was so informative and made me feel at ease about venturing in to something new.
So we began tracking in the spring, Gary was wonderful with my dogs, patient and very knowledgable , always coming up with different and creative ways to best suit my dogs tracking style. I learned a lot in such a short time and believe this is due to Gary always making classes enjoyable and keeping things simple so I understood .
By September Gary asked if I would like to trial my older boy Brinks at first I laughed but Gary assured me we were ready!! I trialed in September and missed passing by about a foot, but Gary took all the positives in our track and we worked on them the next day in class.
So in November I decided that we were ready to try again, and this time I was confident that Brinks was ready, Gary was positive I was ready ! We showed up and Brinks being his awesome self tracked like a pro, and we passed getting his TD!!! I don’t know if I could of done it without the patients and knowledge of Gary!! I highly recommend Gary , and thank him for all he does to keep this wonderful sport fun!!
