About Dayton Cummings

After many years as a vet tech, working in and managing kennels. I decided to go to Triple Crown Dog Academy where I spent 2 years expanding my knowledge of dog training and behavior. With over 20 years’ experience I've trained in many different areas, such as obedience, all types of scent work, narcotics, search and rescue, agility, competitive dog sports, the rehabilitation of aggressive and fearful dogs, and many more.

I have worked with many shelters and rescues over the years evaluating and training dogs to become better members of society. I love working with shelter dogs because most are there through no fault of their own. And I get to work with dogs that have a variety of needs, which then I get to utilize many of my skills. But what I find the most rewarding is being a part of finding their forever home.
