I am a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen, Star Puppy, and Tricks evaluator, Rodeo Dog judge and CPE Speedway Course Marshall
I have been training dogs for 30 years, competing for 20 plus years, and teaching various dog obedience classes, rally classes and seminars, agility classes, fitness seminars for handlers and dogs for over 12 years. I enjoy training my own dogs in rally obedience, traditional obedience, agility, trick dog, rodeo dog, F.A.S.T CAT, lure coursing and speedway. I am a member of Westmoreland County Obedience ,Three Rivers Shetland Sheepdog Club, and Loyalhanna Agility Club.
I love training and competing with my dogs and exploring different opportunities and challenges. The biggest challenge was starring in the stage performance of “Annie”. They earned an award from their performance and have been asked and performed in multiple shows.
Gio (12 years old)has earned numerous titles and championships in Agility and Rally. He participated in Rally Nationals since they started. Gio now competes in venues that allow wheelchairs and excels in those venues at the highest level.
