We are pleased to announce that effective June 1, 2018, Days End Retrievers, LLC (owned and operated by Jerry Day) and Waterfowl Widowmakers, LLC (owned and operated by Shawn Sims) are merging and will officially be operating as one. Jerry Day and Shawn Sims are longtime personal friends who have trained together frequently in the past. This merger represents a joining of two professional retriever training businesses with a history of excellence in our field. Both have very similar training techniques and culture, with strengths that are highly complementary. The enhanced experience and expertise resulting from this merger will enable us to provide a new and broader set of services to our clients.
We are both extremely proud of our reputation in the industry, the quality of our training, the quality of care we provide to the animals entrusted to our care, and the quality of our final product. We hold similar values and philosophies on doing business with an emphasis on honesty and integrity, and the importance of bringing a positive attitude to work. The combination of our resources will provide a greater breadth and depth in the quality of our training and an expansion of our competition activities.
Effective June 1, 2018, the primary operating location will be 1045 Bobo Banks Rd, Grantville, GA. Additionally, all invoices will be processed through Waterfowl Widowmakers, giving our clients the ability to pay by credit card.
As a joined force, we will work as a team to train each dog in our training program. We will both be in the field on a daily basis handling each dog and combining our strengths and knowledge for the betterment of each animal. As time progresses, Jerry will begin to take less of a hands-on role but will remain engaged as a coach and mentor.
We hope you will join us in celebrating this major milestone as it provides a tremendously exciting opportunity for you, our clients, and ourselves. We look forward to bringing to you a broader range of expertise and quality of service. We appreciate your confidence and pledge our continued commitment to enabling your dog's success and delivering the benefits we expect from this merger.
