About Me


Proudly serving all of Southern Wisconsin for over 30 years, at Tails Up Kennels LLC we strive to help make every dog reach their potential from competition dogs to gun dogs to house-first then hunting dogs.  We can customize your dog's training to meet your personal needs from private sessions to full-time training.


When should I start training my puppy?

The answer is right away.  The introduction to birds at an early age is important to a dog's prey drive and development.  Prey drive is very important to a gun dog and the earlier he or she has bird contact the better.  We want to "put gas in the tank" is how I describe it.  My motto is "birds make bird dogs".

Private Sessions

For people that want to be more hands on in their dog's development.  This is a great way to be involved and to learn how to handle your dog in all parts of the training process. 

Here at Tails Up Kennels we prefer that the dog owner join in the training of their dog.  It is a great way to develop the bond with your dog right from the start. 

Full Time Training

I offer full time training where I will kennel your dog and work with the dog daily to achieve the goal that you want from a competition dog to a gun dog or basic obedience.
