Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Mary57Coming from a previous job as manager of a fast food restaurant, Mary brings her diligent work skills and her focused attitude to Pine Shadows. Mary can be found working the front desk, answering the phone, cleaning runs, walking dogs and controlling the inventory of supplies.

Our greeter at the front desk is Axel, Dawn’s springer. In true springer-like behavior, Axel checks on everyone’s actions throughout the day. Axel, a Lacy x Toast pup, will be on leave each fall to hunt at Daybreak.

Our dog groomer at Pine Shadows for over 16 years, Dawn has earned an outstanding reputation. Her success might be measured by the amount of lead time necessary to book an appointment.  Dawn knows all the canine breeds. Dawn barrel races almost every weekend with her horse, Raz.

But then she’s off to put new straw in the maternity run and walk a dog. After lunch she will be in the field giving individual training to one of the many young springers. When you come out to run your dog, Joan may be shooting the wing gun. And she would be happy to show you around the kennels anytime. Here she is with one of her babies, Merlin.      

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: morgan3Morgan is our head trainer. It is his goal to bring the best out of each dog he works with. And judging from the amount of time he is in conversations with owners either on-site or by telephone, he is attempting to bring out the best in relationships between dog and owner. During spring and fall, Morgan has a traveling schedule to field trials at which he handles dogs. He is also in demand from springer clubs to judge their trials or gun for them. In the fall his work is focused on almost entirely on hunting. 

 

Sophie has the knowledge and expertise in the important areas of dog health, nutrition, genetics, breeding, and obedience training. She personally does most of the feeding and is responsible for the health of each of the dogs. She handles the breeding program with over twenty litters planned each year.  Sophie also teaches obedience classes throughout the year, both individual/family and group. Sophie supervises the kennel staff on a seven day a week basis. Sophie knows her dogs.
