After leaving that business, he became manager of Field of Dreams Doggy Day School in Vinton, VA. He has been a member of APDT and attended their annual conference. In 2009 he won the Sprint Award in recognition of his bond with Matt, his first dog. He loves working with clients and their dogs helping to build a lifelong bond, and especially teaching troubled dogs how to get along.
