It is awesome being a part of Brave and Faithful K9 because it is a family business that involves my wife, Janie, and my daughter, Megan.
I love Working-Line German shepherds
and am constantly amazed at what they can do. My wife and I have had German shepherds in our family since the early stages of our marriage 26 years ago and counting. They truly have been part of our family.
My job at Brave and Faithful K9 is very glamorous, and I am always in the spotlight:). I handle the business side of things, build kennels and training equipment, clean kennels, provide
transportation to and from training/trials, maintain the property, occasionally put on the bite sleeve, assist with training, and whatever else Janie and Megan need me to do.
It is absolutely cool to support my daughter in her dream to train, trial, and raise Working-Line German shepherds. My tag line is,
temporary, Family is Forever, so invest your time wisely."
I wear many “hats” for our family business and am most happy and comfortable to be the behind-the-scenes support personnel.
I am the website designer (which I have found is just an extension of all those years of manual scrapbooking that I did of my kids and family...:)), photographer,
videographer, communications and sales representative, and canine supervisor (Yes, I made the last one up because it sounds impressive). This really just means that I work with the dogs in any way that is helpful and that I clean, clean, and clean more: kennels, dogs, crates, vehicle, yard, house, etc.--Because if you don’t, everything becomes one big fur ball..LOL!
What I have come to enjoy the most are the wonderful people that we have met on this journey. We have been gifted with amazing clients for our puppies.
My prayer and heart's desire is that in some small way we have touched the lives we have gotten to serve through our business and that JESUS can be seen in all that we do. For the Glory of Our Lord!
Here at Brave and Faithful K9, I am the BFK9 Schutzhund/
trainer, avid researcher, and professional puppy holder. I love the German shepherd breed, and it has always been my dream and passion to raise, train, and produce these
extremely intelligent creatures. Starting our family business was the beginning of making that dream a reality.
I have been training in the sport of Schutzhund (IGP) for 6+ years now. It has been a major learning experience for me-almost like discovering a whole new world. There is always a new training method to learn and I am constantly trying to figure out how to perfect each of our dogs in their obedience, tracking, and protection work.
My first priority as the dog trainer is to honor God in everything that I do; in the end, it is God who makes things prosper, and that is what I cling to.
I am very blessed and excited to be a part of our family business and look forward to what the future holds for us.
Michaele, mom, mother-in-law, & Grandmama, has always encouraged our children, her grandkids, to “Do Hard Things” and believed that they could accomplish whatever they set out to do.
She loves our country and the ideals that it was founded on and has encouraged all of us to develop the interests and gifts that we naturally
have through personal ingenuity.
She has traveled with us all over. She has watched Megan work her dogs on and off the field, watched dog videos, viewed puppy and dog pictures, listened to hundreds and hundreds of hours of puppy/dog conversations, and has been at our sides for Megan's most important events.
She is part of our family business in an indirect way…just humbly behind the scenes. We credit her for planting the vision in our minds that we could ever possibly have our own family business one day.
What would we do without the generations that have come before us!
