A life-long dog owner, Mark has always loved animals. He graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Wildlife Science and subsequently started a career with the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Law Enforcement. During this career, he was able to establish the Bureau’s first canine unit. Mark worked firearms detection dogs and a man-trailing bloodhound during this time. He has since retired and has recently joined the K-9 Basics training team. He is excited to have the opportunity to work with dogs and their owners and to learn from an established team of talented trainers.
