Experienced agility instructor and judge for UKI and USDAA.
AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC), AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and
AKC Trick Dog EvaluatorI began training & competing in dog sports (agility, herding, flyball and obedience) in 1998. Prior to dogs, I trained horses and was a successful dressage rider and trainer.
I am always striving to improve in the sport by attending seminars to learn new techniques and trends in agility training.As an accomplished dog agility handler, I have completed in multiple venues at the local, regional and national level. I have earned many championships with multiple dogs.My many hours of experience coaching and training offers perspective about the different learning styles of both dogs and humans. This has built my shared foundation philosophy to see training from the dog’s perspective. A keen eye for picking up opportunities to improve the working relationship between the dog and handler, and ability to break down and clarify concepts.I enjoy teaching both foundation and advanced classes and strive to provide each team with the instruction needed to help the human and canine reach their desired goals.
