William McLeroy

Definitely a ‘big picture’ guy, William inspires and pushes the Pack to continually learn and grow; through study, self-reflection, and reinvention.

William started up Taurus in college, while pursuing degrees in Philosophy and English at UT. His training roots go back to a hunting dog facility outside of Tyler, TX. The kennel owner, a prominent gun dog trainer and field trial judge, recognized William’s talent early on, and put him through an intense and thorough apprenticeship in obedience and gun dog training. William worked throughout high school and college training hundreds of dogs and competing in field trials.

William is one of those people who read 12 books at a time. He is also a private pilot, loves Barton Springs, walking the hike and bike trail, and his own dog, Simon.
