Tobias’s passion for working with animals first began during his teenage years when he volunteered at a no-kill animal shelter. Since then, Tobias found his calling to train dogs after working at a training facility for police dogs and as a veterinary assistant. He has mentored under a national top-placing competitor for AKC Rally and has assisted in Canine Good Citizen testing, DSS evaluations, and therapy dog visits to a juvenile detention center. He also attended a six-week mentorship specializing in behavior modification, outdoor obedience, and hiking manners for dogs. In April 2019 Tobias attended a six-month course at the world-renowned Tarheel Canine School for Dog Trainers, working with high drive and high caliber police, personal protection, and pet obedience dogs. Tobias and his German Shepherd, Ashe, trained and certified together as a Narcotics Detection Team for the years 2019-2020. He graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Emergency Medical Care, specializing in Healthcare Management.
