Jim was the lead instructor at two kennels in the state of NC where he was tasked with instructing Law Enforcement and Military personnel. Jim has instructed canine teams from around the world and has instructed classes for Working Dog Magazine, K9 Cop Magazine, Bravo 3, Hold the Line K9 conferences, and K9 Law & Order Seminars.
Jim enjoys learning new skills to enhance his abilities as a trainer and continually strives to increase the success rates of his canine teams in the field.
Jim has had many great human influences and dog trainers over the years that have assisted his growth as a trainer and his love for dog training. However, the one being that grew that passion more than any human was his last partner, Blek. Blek was a great patrol dog, but was the best instructor!
