Head Tranier : Patrick Fitzgerald
Hello everyone, thank you for visiting us here at Keystone K9 Services! My name is Patrick Fitzgerald and I am the owner and head trainer here at Keystone. I was born in Nashua, NH, and moved to Downingtown, Pennsylvania in 2004.
Growing up I had the pleasure of always having German Shepherds, Boston Terriers, Mastiffs and numerous other breeds in my life. At a young age my parents taught me how to properly care for and treat mans best friend. As I grew it was not out of the norm for me to bring home lost dogs, cats, and even injured birds, and squirrles for rehabilitation. I started helping at shelters, and rescues which gave me a very clear picture as to what direction I wanted to take as an adult. After I moved to Pennsylvania I continued my rescue work by helping at Lamancha animal rescue in Unionville, PA.
After a year of looking I decided to continue my education at Pro Canine Center which is located in Frenchtown, NJ. I recieved my commercial training certification, and continue my training to become a fully certified master trainer. I actively train my two German Shepherds, and Bulldog in the german dog sport of Schutzhund. The sport of Schutzhund consists of three phases of tracking, obedience, and protection. In the coming years I hope to bring my dogs to the national, and international level of competition! Thank you for visiting Keystone K9 Services! I hope to have a chance to work with you and your best friend in the future!
Patrick Fitzgerald, and Keystone K9 Services.
