I have always had an empathetic connection with animals.
It became my lifelong passion & dediction to learn how to care for & understand why animals behave as they do.
Even so, as an adult when I got my first dog, I spoiled him completely rotten. Before he was a year old, I needed desperately to find help to retrain him & get him under control. We began group obedience classes offered by the local AKC club. Within a year I was apprenticing to teach group dog obedience courses.
During this time I discovered dog sport competitions. Since, I have actively competed with my canine partners in dog obedience trials, tracking tests, conformation shows, & dog agility trials.
I have found that pet lovers come in all ages and from all walks of life.
I love competing at agility trials with my dog Petey.
Petey & I not only enjoy running together in agility, we both also really enjoy seeing & visiting with all our human & canine friends at the trials.
There are many good trainers around, but pick someone with the personality that feels like the right fit to work with you & your dog, a pro that listens & communicates well with you.
Search for a pro that primarily trains with positive reinforcement for long term good doggy manners for your dog & that builds trust & respect between you & your dog.
