Over the coming weeks, we will be introducing the emcee and judges for the 2020 North Star Puppy & Handler Contests. Next, we introduce one of our judges, Daddy Don!

Don is the 2012 International Trainer and he makes his home in Denver, Colorado. He and his partner Chris started exploring Leather in 2004. Their first kink event was Thunder in the Mountains, and that event sparked a fire for learning and sharing. He co-founded the Denver boys of Leather in 2006 and is so proud of their ongoing success. Don served on the Board of Directors of the Rocky Mountain Leather Alliance for five years, working to secure visibility in the local Denver community. Don started exploring puppy play in 2008, met Pup Luckey in 2009, and together they hold the International Puppy & Trainer titles for 2012. Together they traveled to many US events to educate on the puppy/handler dynamic. Don co-produced every Puppies In The Mountains event since 2011, and chairs the Board of Directors of Puppies In The Mountains, Inc, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization. Don really likes puppies, reading, cooking, and snuggling his puppy Zach.
