Albert Milner

Owner, Trainer


Al has an extensive background in handling and training dogs.  From 1981 to 1985 he was the Training Director for the West Chester Kennel Club near Philadelphia.  In 1986, he decided it was time to build his own facility for training and boarding, and Milnerhaus Kennels was born.  He has conducted numerous seminars on tracking, obedience, and protection training around the country.


Al has worked in many capacities for USA, the United Schutzhund Clubs of America, including as a Licensed Judge for over 10 years.  He had the honor of judging the USA Nationals in 1997 (St. Louis, MO) and 1998 (Denver, CO).


In addition to serving as a Judge, Al also worked as a helper in several World Qualifier and National Championship events.  (A helper is the person who actually takes the bite from the dog during the evaluation.)  He has also served as the Sieger Show helper in Washington, D.C., and as Regional Championship helper for the Northeast Region.


Several of Northeast PA’s K-9 units have been provided and trained by Al, including Dunmore Police Dog “Cash”, Lackawanna Country Drug Dogs “Sarge”, “Hammer”, and “Buzz”, and Carbondale Police Department’s K-9 “Kuffs”.


Currently, in addition to running the kennel and training classes, Al performs as the Training Director for Underwood Schutzhund Club.  He has trained 5 of his own dogs to Schutzhund titles, and helped numerous other handlers achieve the same titles.
