A good decoy is invaluable to a training organization.
Phil is a full time dog trainer and has been a decoy for 5 years. He is able to read dogs and problem solve, making him a valuable member of our team. His speed and natural ability presents different challenges for the dog and handler, and helps them to improve their tactics.
He likes a confident, social dog who is biddable and clear headed, and has full, pushing grips in bitework. Phil has the experience and expertise to recognize and encourage this behavior.
Phil is also a member of a local French Ring club. He devotes his off time to decoying club dogs as well as training and handling his personal dogs.
