Paul & Kirsten Fulk, CPACM, Owners, Professional Trainers
Since 1994, Paul and Kirsten have been raising and training dogs. In 2001, they realized their dream of working with dogs full-time! Paul, along with our staff trainers, performs most of the training for field work and manners. His love of bird hunting and knowledge of what makes a good hunting dog helps him provide the best possible training experience for owners and dogs.
Paul also trains and handles dogs for AKC hunt tests. Kirsten has followed her love of rescue and is working with the Search Dog Foundation and her own nonprofit, Train a Rescue.
When not on the road looking for rescue dogs, Kirsten takes an active role in designing and implementing new boarding options for our vacationing guests! We currently have 12 dogs that call us Mom and Dad, ranging in age from 9 months to 13 ½ years. We may have muddy paw prints on our couch, but we also have lots of love!
Skyler Smith, Trainer, Manager
I'm Skyler, and I'm a trainer at Field of Dreams. I enjoy using classic and new methods of training when working with our clients' dogs, as well as applying those to my growing puppy, Rosco, at home. I am continually working to learn new skills and keep up to date on the best training methods. I enjoy getting to work with new dogs each week, I love this job and the clients!
Diana Kingery, Animal Care Technician
Diana has been with Field of Dreams Boarding & Training for 10 years as a kennel worker and dog handler, training in obedience and manners. Working with animals has been Diana's passion - having fun and encouraging respectful relationships between people and the animals we all love so much. Diane works to share her knowledge about dog's body language and high energy in relation to the effects on training for both people and dogs alike. She also enjoys researching various training methods and is always open to try different methods to achieve positive results.
