Anes with his dog Mojo
Anes in Schutzhund Protection
Anes began his apprenticeship under Mike Pinksten in 2007 and has since become a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. He has worked one on one with Mike training hundreds of dogs in obedience and behavior modification with emphasis placed on solving problems with family dogs. Anes also has a great deal of experience working with personal protection dogs and dogs competing in the sport of Schutzhund. He has helped prepare many top Schutzhund competitors for the obedience and protection phases. In 2009, Anes became one of the youngest helpers certified as a protection decoy with the United States Schutzund Clubs of America. Anes also received high praise from the USCA Director of the Helper Committee in his second certification in Albany, NY. Anes' keen intellect, athletic ability, and natural affinity for dog handling has earned him the position as head trainer/training manager here at Olympia Kennels. We are very proud to have him part of our team!
