Lead K9 Trainer
I have had a passion for all animals my entire life and especially our furry companion the dog! I didn’t have a dog growing up, but I can tell you the first thing I did when I moved away from home was find me a new friend…man or in my case woman’s best friend!
I got my true introduction to training when I purchased a fancy AKC registered Great Dane who was about 6 months old. I named him HyCountry’s Rustlers Rhapsody and called him Rex. After about 4 months of living with me, Rex was healthy again (his previous owner didn’t take care of him) and during this time I learned how to ‘Stack’ a dog. Then I learned…
I’m Cruz, I have been training dogs since I was a kid. I brought home every stray that passed in front of me and would take every puppy offered to me. I would work with the dogs and puppies teaching basic obedience and other things until I could find them a good forever home.
In 2008, I had the opportunity to work with Working K-9 dogs such as police dogs and military dogs. This sparked my interest in learning to train dogs to search and do protection work. The first time training these dogs I got punched in the gut by a dog with a muzzle on…I knew from that moment on I wanted to learn everything I could about training dogs, both working and pets. Shortly after this, I obtained my first working dog and have worked hard to expand my knowledge into all areas of dog training. I have learned so much since then and now own 2 Dutch Shepherds that I am learning how to train in French Ring.
I have been working for Underworld Kennels since 2017 and have trained many personal pets and working dogs. I continue to attend trainings to expand my knowledge to better serve you and your dog.
