    "I am originally from Bermuda. My family then moved to Rota, Spain. While I was there, in my sophomore year of high school I started training dogs. We eventually moved to the states and I continued my career with dogs working at kennels in Maryland and Northern Virginia. In 1990 I moved to the Tidewater area continuing with my career as a trainer, groomer and care giver. I have competed and titled dogs in UKC and Obedience & Schutzhund (obedience, tracking, and protection).    -- Dwayne Nolan
