I have been an instructor with Hi Flyers off and on since 2013. I have two dogs. Keisha, a border collie cross who was born in 2006 and I rescued her in 2009. We started agility in 2010 at High Flyers and have been hooked on it ever since! I rescued Ryobi in 2016 when he was just 15 weeks old, Ryobi is a Husky Lab cross who has grown up in the agility world.
I began teaching at Hi Flyers in the foundation levels and have really enjoyed watching so many teams work through the 3 foundations. I love watching new handlers and dogs on their first night of classes begin working their sit stays and their basic shaping skill and then staying with those teams as they progress through the classes, I am always so proud when they move on to novice classes with all the skills and techniques I have taught them throughout foundation.
I have participated in workshops put on my Joan Weston including; "Get the Real Deal on Dominance," "What does your body language say to your dog," and "Shy or Aggressive how to tell".
I have participated in Agility Handling Seminars with AAC Judges; Rebecca McKay, Tracy Sklenar, and Gary White.
I really enjoy teaching Agility with Hi Flyers and am excited for the partnership with Dumbledog! There are so many new learning opportunities and I am excited to try them out. Ryobi and I have already participated in the Animal Actors Workshop as well as the open house introductions to scenting and tricks!
