John is an Army veteran and a graduate of Animal Behavior College On Site Dog Training Instructor Program, during which he spent over 200 hours training shelter dogs. John has a special interest in service dogs, training two of his own service dogs. As a service-connected disabled veteran with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PTSD and TBI induced seizures, John brings a wealth of passion and life experience in over 14 years of service dog handling. Always by his side is Tango, John’s seizure medical alert dog of two years and is his second service dog. His personal familiarity with the service dog life, military background and desire to help other veterans transition to a better life working with animals, is a great addition to our already well rounded group of trainers.
