I am Morris Chaisson, owner and trainer of In Control Dog Training
In 1990 I bought a boxer puppy and trained her basic obedience and a few tricks. This started my love for dogs and dog training. Within a couple years I began working with some local trainers in my area. This is where I was first introduced to the sport of Schutzhund. Right away I was hooked.
In 2000 I bought my first working boxer puppy, Hawk. Hawk got his BH at 16 months old and his Sch1 at 2 years old winning high in tracking, high Sch1, and high in trial. At the 2003 USA Working Boxer Championship Hawk earned his Sch2 title and won high in tracking, high Sch2 and high in trial again. We were invited to join the USA Boxer Club to compete in the AITBOX Championship in Europe, but do to an injury during training Hawk had to retire after earning his Sch3 title.
I am currently competing with my GSD Aiden, which I have also trained from 8 weeks old. Aiden got his BH at 17 months old and his Sch1 title at 20 months, winning high in tracking, high obedience, high protection and high in trial at the Red River Schutzhund Club. Just 2 months later Aiden earned his Sch2, again winning high in tracking, high obedience and high in trial. At 2 ½ years old Aiden got his Sch3 title at the AWDF Championship and took home the trophy for youngest IPO3. In November 2006 we took high protection and high in trial at the Cypress Working Dog Association. We also competed at the South Central Regional trial in February 2007.
In 2008 I got my first Lab puppy, Bugsy and decided to venture into a new field of competition, Hunting Retriever Tests. I brought Bugsy from Starters to Hunting Retriever Champion by this 2nd birthday.
In 2003 I attended the Tom Rose School for Dog Trainers in St. Louis, MO and graduated from the Professional Trainer Program. I began my own training business providing obedience training to the public as well as narcotic searches done with my dogs Hawk and Aiden, which I personally trained in drug detection work. Bugsy is now training for drug detection work as well.
In 2007 I attended E-Collar Specialists training with Sit Means Sit in Denver, Co.
I completed Training Helper Techniques through East Coast K-9 and certified as Schutzhund USA helper through Ark-La-Tex Schutzhund Club. I am a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals.
We have now evolved into In Control Dog Training, the most recognized and recommended dog training company in the greater New Orleans area.
