It is my passion to provide quality education about positive reinforcement based training practices and how they apply to agility to as many instructors, competitors, and trainers as I can. YOU, my patrons, helps make that possible. 

As a patron, for just $5/month, you'll be able to: 
- access exclusive, Patron-only merchandise! 
- submit questions that I produce content on: I may choose to do a Monday Musing about your question, or answer it in another format and make that available to everyone. 

If you're interested in a bit more behind the scenes access, for $20/month, you get:

- submit questions that I produce content on: I may choose to do a Monday Musing about your question, or answer it in another format and make that available to everyone.
PLUS: 
- submit things you'd like to see me train, and once a month, I'll go live, just for you, to train that skill either with Torch, or Shrek or BOTH! 

If you are passionate about dog agility and positive reinforcement, THIS is where you want to be. You are my people. Thank you for your support! 

I have been training in agility nearly my entire life. With more than twenty years of experience, I have had the opportunities to work with hundreds of dogs within a large variety of breeds.
I began my agility journey with an American Eskimo and a Westie. In 1999, I began competing with my first Shetland Sheepdog, Buddy. Buddy’s lesson to me was about connection and bond. While running him, I knew that agility was what I was meant to do.
Buddy’s agility career was cut short due to an injury, but we spent 15 amazing years together as a team outside of the agility ring! 
In 2003, Ty became apart of my life and my agility career took off like a rocket. He was 3-years old and not completely sure of himself, but together, we blossomed into an incredible team, on and off the course!

In 2005, I attended my first National event and took fifth place in the $10,000 Dog Agility Steeplechase Finals. That same year, I became a USDAA Judge, as a 13-year old Junior Handler. I have competed at the Cynosport World Games twelve times, with eight different dogs. I have also attended the AKC Nationals three times with my border collie, Smack.

Currently, I have two Border Collies and a Parson Russell Terrier. Smack, 13 years old, has just recently retired from agility (thanks COVID). Shock, 9 years old, is semi-retired from agility for health reasons, but enjoys apple collecting and starring in demo videos for online classes. Shrek, 5 years old, is my PRT that is actively training in Agility and TEAM Obedience. He pushes me to be a better trainer each and every day. 
I'm currently raising Torch, a 6-month old PRT, for his breeder. You can follow along his life here in patreon or on any of my social media channels. 

In 2013, I moved to WA state and opened my training school, Synergy Dog Sports. I built a school of over 200 students with 5 instructors. In 2015, I added mindset training to my agility program, working with Dr. Kathrine McAleese on a regular basis. In 2016, I was a part of the OneMind Dogs Assistant Coach Program. In 2018, I left the private facility and started exploring online coaching and traveling to teach more seminars. In 2018, I finished my OneMind Dogs Coach Certificate after traveling to Finland to teach agility. In 2019, I joined the staff at the Fenzi Dog Sports Academy. 

Over the years of my agility career, I have learned from many of the “greats.” I believe in agility handling and training from the dog’s perspective, and finding ways for agility handlers of all ages to handle intuitively and with efficiency. 
My main goal as a dog trainer is to create happy dogs and happy handlers using positive teaching methods and a high rate of reinforcement on both ends of the leash.
