“I believe that the most important thing when working with dogs is clear communication.”
My name is Rick Shumate and I have been training and working with dogs for the past 3 years.

I am currently a K9 handler of a narcotics detector/patrol service dog. I absolutely love working with dogs and seeing the results from that work with your dog. I have been to many classes on a wide range of topics in this field. Some of the classes I have been to are Police K9 Handler and Police K9 Instructors course.

I have also attended different conferences on K9 training that covered a wide range of topics including K9 psychology, dog on dog aggression problem solving, tactical tracking, urban tracking, K9 aggression, clear communication and decoy work.

I do believe that the most important thing when working with dogs is clear communication and I have not seen anyone better at communicating and teaching others to communicate with their K9s then Clay.

I have worked with Clay with for several years and before I had a working dog I would come to him to help me with any training problems I was having with my personal dog.

I am now proud to be a part of helping him train others how to train their dogs.
