About your Instructor: Dog training has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I have been involved in dog sports for many years. I apprenticed at St. Hubert’s in group and behavior classes before deciding to devote my career to instructing. As an avid agility competitor, I am out trialing and coaching most weekends! I currently live with four Aussies. We hold multiple Agility Trial Championships in AKC, ASCA and CPE as well as High in Trials on each of my dogs Torch, Pyro and Crime. My passion is AGILITY but I also compete in obedience, rally, conformation, disc and dock-diving. My dogs have been nationally ranked in Agility, Rally and Obedience. My Australian Shepherd Pyro is ranked number 1 in the country for AKC Agility and we attended the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2021 AKC Agility Invitational.
Torch was ranked #4 in 2019 and #2 in 2020 and Top Preferred dog for 2021 for AKC Agility Invitational pursue continuing education through classes, privates, and workshops. I am familiar with a variety of handling styles and approach teaching based on what is best for the dog/handler team. I graduated from IAABC for Animal Behavior program and am working on my certification. I enjoy using my knowledge to help teams in this area as well.
I believe success starts with relationship and solid foundations.... hard work pays off !
