Agility & Obedience
I have been working with and training dogs for almost 20 years in my career as well as my personal life. Training competitively in a number of different sports with my own dogs has given me a well rounded approach to positive reinforcement based training methods and I look forward to passing this knowledge onto you to assist you in creating a well rounded family pet!
I currently live with 5 dogs of my own, who I have trained and played with in Rally Obedience, Disc dog, Scent work, Earth dog, Dock diving, Herding and my personal favorite Agility. I have competed across Canada, the US as well as in Europe with several dogs and achieved many Podium placements at a Regional and National level as well as being selected as part of our National Team representing Canada at the World Agility Open in Europe in 2019 and 2020.
