I was introduced to dog obedience training when I was about 5 years old, when I would accompany my father to classes for our Labrador. A few years later we used what he learned in class to put basic obedience on my Beagle. Then I spent many years learning about, riding, and eventually starting horses. In 2014 I got a new Labrador puppy, and enrolled in obedience classes with her. In 2015 I found my way to DTCCU and now I compete, and my dog has titles, in Retriever Hunt Tests, Obedience, and Rally. Field work is my passion, but I enjoy all aspects of training with my dog.
