Brian McLaughlin began training with Schooch in September, 2014 for air-scent search. Schooch is an energetic 7-month old Australian Shepherd that needs a job to be happy. Brian is a database administrator at George Fox University in Newberg, OR. Brian competed in disc-dog competition throughout the northwest when his older dog was young, and he's excited to get involved in a more meaningful activity with the pup. Brian enjoys scuba diving, boating, photography, and geocaching. He's been a volunteer involved with the organization and operation of an extreme adventure race in central Oregon since 2008 and has volunteered as a summer camp counselor at a Quaker church camp every summer since 1987.
