How Christopher Banke Became a Dog Training Icon

July 30, 2017

It was early on when Christopher Banke recognized his passion for dog training. In fact, his calling was apparent very early, when he was just 15 and he began to train his Doberman, Dana and he established the Algemeiner Schutzhund Club, He was so young and impressive, an older and more experienced trainer named Margarete Iaquinto, became a strong influence on him and caused him to direct his training focus to German Shepherds.

That was most certainly a fortuitous decision for Christopher Banke, since he has since worked hard and established himself as one of the best dog trainers in the United States and quite possibly the world. That reputation has brought him a lot of dogs to train, which in turn has improved his skills to an even greater degree.For example, he opened his own dog training business, “Chris Banke Protection Dog Trainer” before he had even turned 20. Not only is it still going strong, but the facility, located in Vermont, is thriving more than a quarter-century later.
