Chris first became acquainted with dogs by way of his father who was
an avid bird hunter, and as such kept a number of "bird dogs" on his
property all the time. So growing up with dogs in and out of the house
was a part of growing up for Chris, and his father and mother taught him early on that the dogs they had were family!
After growing up with a bird dog of his own named "Poke" (an English Springer Spaniel) Chris took an interest in the American Pit Bull Terrier and he has had nothing but since, with his two current Pits Boris and Keiko.
Chris is a graduate of Animal Behavior College and has trained under
the legendary and world renown canine behaviorist Dr Ian Dunbar.
Jay Martin (no relation) has been an exemplary trainer for decades
and currently has two of his own beautiful, well trained black
German Shepherds, Archer and Loki.
The thing that impressed me about Jay and the reason i asked
him if he was interested in becoming a trainer with me was
how well trained his dogs were but also how super friendly
and issue-free they were.
Jay has been a super addition to Dogs Anonymous and here
