Kirk Wichman had his first dog trained in 1994. From that moment on he was interested in the art of training dogs. In 1999 he went to work for Pat McHale, a hunt test/gun dog trainer and worked with him for four years. In 2002, he left Ridgewood Kennels and went to work for Danny Farmer, one of the most successful Field Trial trainers of all time. Kirk worked with Danny and began leasing space starting his own training kennel at Vinwood Kennels.
