my name is noel palmer from saratoga springs, ny. i have been owned by amstaffs since 1988. i enjoy working with my dogs in agility, obedience, and weight pull, currently training to trial in carting in late summer. i live on a mini farm with rabbits, goats, turkeys and a few noisy guinea hens so getting off the farm is a little challenging at times. looking forward to some interesting talk....

i got my first amstaff through a rescue. at the time i was actually looking for a rottie, but after talking to the rescue lady, she says she had the perfect dog for me <insert sucker smiley> - but she was right.
i started doing the different venues, when they were locally available, then i spent years traveling after "we" decided "we" liked them. i trained on/off with the local kennel clubs but now i do the majority of my training in the yard which works fine. its amazing to see how agility and weight pull has become so popular in the last 10 years, now rally wow.

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.
