I started in dog sports as a 4-Her when I was 11 years old, competing in obedience and showmanship with a Rat Terrier and a Doberman. Since that time, I and a variety of dogs have earned titles in AKC and CDSP Obedience, AKC and WCRL Rally, AKC and UKI Agility, NACSW and AKC Scent sports, and WCFO and RFE Freestyle. My training style is fun, based on positive reinforcement, shaping and respect for the emotional well being of all the humans and dogs involved. Major influences on my training have come from Bob Bailey, Denise Fenzi, Susan Garrett, Amy Cook and Lucy Newton.
