My name is Marcus Hampton and I was born and raised in Buffalo N.Y. Through my years growing up I played football and boxed and of course always had a passion for dogs. I started Schutzhund in the year 2000 when I met my mentor and good friend Owen Tober at the Schutzhund club of Buffalo where I was a member and did helper work but now have my own working dog group and am looking to start my own club in the future. When I am not busy doing helper work and training with my own Schutzhund group, I am spending time training my young boy Viking in IPO. 

I am a National level helper, and since 2000 I have done over 25 club trials and many big events doing Sch and IPO I, IPO II and IPO III dogs as well as a police DPO trial and helper seminars. Also I have a number of 721 dogs in my book not including my first blue book.
