PETER DOZOIS

Director

Peter ‘Dozer’  is a retired RCAF Colonel who has hunted and campaigned retrievers across North America and in Europe. He has a lifelong passion for gun dogs and sporting pursuits and is a student of the field trial ‘game’. He is thankful for the journey these dogs take us on: an adventure of companionship, ripe with joy and frustration and a year-round reminder we’d rather be hunting. In these early days with the MGDA, he aspires to become a reasonably reliable Rocket launcher.
