About Us

We have lived on The Top Knob since December, 1999.  We do all of our own training (with help from our friends) and we run all of our dogs in all levels of AKC Hunt Tests.

We have had a great teacher that has shared with us his knowledge and experience about dogs, helping us to know what the best things are to do along the way.  The Top Knob is associated with another Northern Indiana kennel, Gunshot Kennel, owned by Andy & Paula Giegold. 

Andy has been my friend and mentor for over 15 years.  His personal philosophies toward the breeds, breeding itself and training have been a huge influence on me and what I hope to get out of my dog endeavors.
