I provide my customers with the absolute best in Protection Dogs. My reputation was established in the Chicagoland Area in the 90's, as a true dog man, and trainer & breeder of protection dogs. Over time, I became known through North America for my training ability in the working dog sports.
During this time, the dog industry was relatively quiet with a steady demand for trained dogs. The interest in the training of dogs for protection may have been strong but limited to only a few who were sprinkled through out the country. Information on training dogs at the time was scarce. Unlike today, the internet was only in it's infancy and widespread use of it was hardly like today's. In the 90's, my methods were considered radical, yet ineffective by the existing status quo. Compulsion training was the method of the day and my ideology was critiqued as being too motivational to yield reliability in the field. During this time I had experienced first hand the short comings of the current methods being used to train working dogs. It was during that time, I was introduced to the Belgian Malinois Breed. Subsequently I discovered French Ringsport. The sport which was imported from France really shaped my idea of what dogs can achieve, and presently, you will find many top trainers who also been influenced by the sport. The sport gave me an outlet for the training and breeding of my Malinois and helped shape my bloodline. My kennel is Champ des Legendes.
Shortly after the 911 bombing, the demand for well trained dogs exploded. With the high demand from Government Contracts also came the onslaught of fly by nights outfits, and entrepreneurs lining up for the pay day. This is what fuels today's market and that initial demand has left a saturated market of mediocrity, over breeding, inept dogs left in its wake.
"I raise & train dogs to protect families, their safety relies on my ability to prepare these dogs for facing potential dangers. This responsibility is more than a job, its a calling and a privilege that I take very seriously. "

We provide our customers with the absolute best in Protection Dogs. Our reputation was established in the late 90's. During this time, the dog industry was relatively quiet and demand steady for trained dogs. There was a lot of interest in the training of dogs for protection but information was still scarce. I had been solicited to sell my own trained dogs frequently by people all the time. After experiencing first hand the short comings of many working dogs at the time, I came to realize the need for a better trained dog. After the 911 bombing the demand for well trained dogs exploded.
During that decade, my competition dogs were being sought after by police trainers or businessman who saw opportunity in the quality of dogs I was raising at the time. Being driven more by passion than financial at the time, I passed on a lot of lucrative opportunities that would of involved the selling of my beloved companions. Eventually, I came upon a cross roads in my life that led me to create a business of training high caliber working dogs for Police & Military, that later evolved to raising dogs for the private sector.
After the 911 bombing, a high demand for well trained dogs exploded and so did number of entrepreneurs wanting to cash in on the "Canine Gold Rush".
