When Layden Coffey was a freshman in high school, his father told him about a dog trainer who was looking for some help. Coffey had grown up with a few pets, but he’d never really considered training dogs as a way to make money.
However, he did enjoy the outdoors, and the job involved helping train retrievers for duck hunting, which he loved doing.
After talking to Jimmy Rodgers, the man he had never met but who was looking for help, he agreed to do it.
He quickly fell in love with training the dogs.
