Thread: Dog Trainer Killed In Wreck

  1. #1

    Default Dog Trainer Killed In Wreck

    According the "The Post-Searchlight" a Bainbridge, Georgia newspaper. "a nationally renowned dog trainer was killed Tuesday when a pickup truck he was in was struck by a semi-trailer truck...Fred Burton Dileo was stopped in a driveway waiting for traffic to pass and the semi crossed both lanes of traffic and collided with Dileo's truck...Horse and dog were o.k....Dileo was considered the top national dog trainer and handler of pointing breeds.....Dileo's wife is Dr Patty Dileo, a veterinarian who practices in Cairo and with Clanton Malphess Veterinary Clinic in Thomasville, GA."

    So sad, so young, so talented.

    Life is precious and fragile.

    Thanks for sharing Rosemary. I am sure Dr Becky's office is devastated.

    Drive is the manifestation of Desire, and measured in Style.

    Fred was a great trainer having a great string of dogs. It is sad news in our pointer world to hear of this. So young and so much promise.

    But he went out on top. Fred was a renowed dog handler named 2006-07 Purina Handler Of The Year. Mr Dileo handled Funseeker’s Rebel which won the 2007 National Championship for Field Trialing Bird Dogs at Ames Plantation in February.

    I was suppose to be going to his house in several weeks to be breeding to a new dog he was bringing into the All Age circuit this year in CH Elhew Sinbad. I hate the fact that I never got to meet him. We really just never know.

    You can see pics of his accident and more info on him at

    Lets keep his family, friends, clients, etc in our prayers.
    "The most qualified breeders of good dogs are, in my view, those who are also objective trainers of their own stock. They are keenly aware of the strengths and weaknesses of their dogs due to the training process."
