Adam grew up bird hunting in the Pacific Northwest. His love for dog training began when he got Lucky, a springer spaniel, that he trained with the help of a pro at eight years old. Adam trains his dogs by building their confidence in the field and bringing out their skills based on desire and drive rather than force. This is how they reach their true potential and become the best hunting companions they can be. Adam trains out of Northwood Retrievers in beautiful North Idaho. He spends his winters working with other trainers on the Field Trial/Hunt Test circuit in Central California and the fall guiding at Ringnecks Hunting Lodge.
