Drew Rupp

Drew grew up watching his grandfather work closely with Border Collies on the farm while herding sheep. To this day, there is nothing more enjoyable to him than watching a handler and dog working in unison towards their goal.

During graduate school, he adopted his current dog, a German Shepherd named Titus. Titus came from an unknown background and was very reactive around other dogs. Drew has built a strong relationship with Titus, building his confidence and reducing anxiety around exciting situations. Now, Titus has earned both CGC and Trick titles, and is looking to earn a title in protection sports as well.

Drew has a great interest in the science surrounding dog training, including how best to build trust and respect through training. He continues to learn while striving to help others build solid bonds with their own dogs.
