Mitch is a US Army Veteran and graduate of Metropolitan State University of Denver. After returning home from service in Operation Desert Storm he discovered the world of service dog training and has been hooked ever since. A long-time advocate for the life changing partnership of the Service Dog/Client Team, and for the therapeutic benefits of Service Dog Training for Veterans, he has been a volunteer and puppy raiser for Service Dog organizations for almost 20 years.
Mitch enjoys traveling the world to see the places he learns about from ancient history lectures and seminars. He is an avid reader and collector of books. He currently has two poodles who are either eagerly awaiting, or suffering through, the chaos of new puppies in the house.
