Additional tips and advice

Kay Lams was born and raised in Washington state and grew up as an animal lover with real passion for horses! She attended Oregon State University for four years in the fields of Psychology and Animal Husbandry, and returned to college following the birth of her children, to graduate with top honors at San Jose State University with double majors in Psychology and Sociology, plus minors in Animal Husbandry and Vocal Music.

Kay has raised, trained, and shown many dogs, first concentrating on Doberman Pinschers and then German Shepherds. By 1963 she had a career established in breeding dogs, obedience, tracking, and conformation. Kay was president of the Freemont dog training club and was the prime promoter in getting them AKC recognition. In her breeding program she worked diligently to promote sound temperament in her Dobbies.

Tom Lams was born and raised in Kewanee, Illinois. During his high school years he worked as a projectionist in the three local movie houses. After high school, Tom moved to Hollywood, CA where he worked in the Movie Studios. He transferred to the San Francisco Bay Area, while doing electronics work he entered San Jose State University, part time earning his degrees in Speech and Communications (followed by extensive postgraduate work in the Behavioral Sciences).

As a sideline he trained German Shepherds for Conformation, Obedience, Tracking, Guard work, Canine Police work, and the Entertainment field.


They have had many breeds of dogs over the years (Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Whippets, Bernese Mountain Dogs, etc…) They continued their education by co-authoring their master’s Thesis, entitled “Early Temperament Balancing of Canine Litters.”

Finally marrying in 1974, they continued their successful dog training and lecturing partnership, while privately co-developing other aspects of animal genetics and behavioral studies (later extending them to include horses and birds) English Bedgerigar parakeets became just the media they needed to further their genetic and pedigree research.

Sandwiched between all that, the pair lectured widely on canine conformation, movement, and training. Including the eight hour workshops nationally and internationally, obedience training, conformation training, pedigree genetics, early puppy raising and socialization, plus teaching their weekly dog training and handling classes in the evenings.
