Owner, Handler, Breeder
For nearly 30 years, I have been training and handling multiple dog breeds within different Performance Dog Sports. From a start in Obedience, I have branched out into Agility, Nosework, and other offered activities.
For the past 15 years, I have been breeding my own line of Labradors Retrievers. I enjoy the fun these dogs have in training and what they can do at trial.
CNWI & Dog Sports Instructor
I am a Certified Nosework Instructor (CNWI) with the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW). I am currently teaching Nosework classes "On the Road" and at High Octane Agility.
At this time, I offer Private Lessons for Obedience, Agility, and Nosework for performance troubleshooting. I also hold Nosework Workshops at training clubs in the Philadelphia, PA area.
Positive and Fun
My philosophy is to keep training positive and fun, no matter where a dog is in its career. People get involved in different dog sports to spend time with their companions and that is the base component to a performance. Class exercises should enhance and challenge each Team while keeping things simple for motivation and drive.
To stay current on education, I attend classes with my own dogs, as well as attend seminars and workshops hosted by fellow CNWIs, Tracking & Obedience clubs, Herders, and Breed Handlers.
