Troy Topping has been named Jones County 4-H Dog Trainer! 

Whether playing with the dog on his grandfather’s farm as a young boy or working with search and rescue dogs in a professional capacity, Stone Hollow Head Trainer, Tory Topping has had a life of canine companionship.
After seven years teaching in an elementary school setting, Tory decided to turn his hobby of working with dogs into a full-time profession in 2007 when he opened Stone Hollow Dog Training and Boarding. He saw an opportunity to use his background in education to not only train dogs, but to help people make their relationship with their pets even better.
Over a decade later, Tory and Stone Hollow have been able to do just that. With a focus on establishing trust, boundaries, and consistent routines, Tory and his team at Stone Hollow have been able to offer personalized training, boarding, and started dogs to families across the Midwest.
