When he was just a teenager, Christopher Banke already realized his unerring passion for dog training. He was just 15 when he founded the Algemeiner Schutzhund Club, so it was clear that, even back then, he knew he’d found his true calling. Thankfully, an older, more experienced trainer worked with him to help him focus his impressive training skills on German Shepherds. Before long he was considered one of the premier trainers in the United States and that provided him with enough work to improve his dog training skills even more. He was so good that he founded his own dog training business, “Chris Banke Protection Dog Trainer” before he even turned 20.
