Andy has been training since 1985. Starting at Handjem with Mike Lardy, he developed a young dog program that is still current and relevant today. During his time with Handjem, Andy was fortunate to train and handle some great dogs; including Big River Bon Amie, Candlewoods Super Tanker, Gusto Lost Control, Candlewoods Tanks A lot, Hattie Macbunn and Honest Abe. These great dogs and countless others have helped to shape and define Andy’s career.
Forming Autumn Run in 1993, Andy has trained a national derby champion, multiple top 10 derby dogs, and nearly 50 champions, making Autumn Run one of the premier professional kennels today.
Over the years, Andy has lectured and conducted many workshops and seminars. Whether working with puppies or All-Age dogs, Andy aims to educate and enhance the skill sets of competitive retriever handlers.
