Dave Rorem started training gun dogs in the 1970's and saw his first field trial in 1977.   He was hooked immediately! He won his first derby in 1979 and made his first Field Champion in 1984.  Since that time, he has trained and handled 7 National  Champions in Canada, made over 70 Field Champions and had over 50 National Finalists in Canada and the U.S.

"Without a doubt, Dave Rorem is one of the best handlers we have in this sport."
Bill Eckett (trainer/handler 2004 National Open Champion)
