“I love search, I love dogs, I love what I do!”

Libby Milroy

Libby became interested in formally training dogs after she met her husband. She loved the challenge of trying to communicate such complex concepts and has extensively studied various methods of training and developed ways to improve the training to “fit” personal styles and individual dog’s style of communicating.

Libby has run AKC Field Trials and Hunt Tests, and UKC Hunt Tests, and is a UKC Hunt Test judge. She is also an active member of the Platte River Hunting Retriever Club.

Libby is originally from Scottsdale, Arizona and is a graduate of the University of Nebraska. She has spent all of her life surrounded by dogs. Libby lives in North Platte, Nebraska with her husband Ron Green, who is a veterinarian. They raise and train American Field Labradors and own and manage a veterinarian clinic. Libby and Ron currently have 12 dogs — 10 Labs and 2 Jack Russell Terriers — and Libby can’t imagine a house without dog hair!
