Dog Agility

My first encounter with dog agility was in the late '90s with my Cairn terrier Toto.

In 2005 I was very happy to accept the opportunity to own and operate the Australian Division of the North American Dog Agility Council (NADAC).

I have successfully trained and competed with numerous dogs over many years, a.ll having earnt many Titles and Awards.  Each dog I have trained has developed the ability to successfully perform distance skills on the course.  Smudge who is now retired excelled at distance skills.  She is the only dog in Australia who has qualified for Challenge stakes at the Australian NADAC Nationals for several years.  She has also successfully earnt two Challenge Stakes cups at the Nationals.

As my passion for distance handling and the required teamwork grew so too did the interest from other agility enthusiasts.  Teaching was a natural progression and I have been teaching agility for many years now.

It gives me great joy to help others experience the fun of learning with their dogs.  It is ever so special to me when a student's success with their dog takes them closer to achieving their dreams.
