I acquired my first Golden Retriever in 1972. They are a wonderful, willing breed with which I competed in conformation and obedience trials. I then was introduced to working certificate and hunt test competitions and so began my hunt test and field trial passion. I acquired my first Labrador Retriever in 1980 to compete at the field trial level. I still compete in hunt test trials with my Golden and Labrador Retrievers. I am actively training, competing and judging field trials. I attended Texas A&M University and graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1980. I retired from Brittmoore Animal Hospital to spend more time in the country and training retrievers. We had the 2 youngest derby national finalists last year. I am affiliated and work part time at the Brenham Veterinary Hospital to continue helping clients with OFA certifications (hip , elbow , shoulders , patellas..thyroid) and also Penn hip certified. When I’m not in town I consult on during the appointment to evaluate technique and positioning and predicted results..
