I believe a well-balanced show dog has a title at both ends; therefore I am always up to the task of taking a conformation show dog and training her for rally, obedience, agility or earthdog.
Rally titles are relatively easy to train for and earn and often allow conformation dogs to earn versatility titles or awards within their breed clubs. Please contact me for estimates about the length of time to earn a rally title on your dog.
Obedience and agility titles take a little more time, but give your dog a lot of fun things to do. Many clubs offer awards for dogs earning these titles.
I love watching dogs do what comes naturally to them, and I love helping them learn to play the games we have invented to watch them do what they naturally do. I am training my first herding dog now (see Rain's portion of the my dogs page) and have past experience with all types of hunting dogs. My favorite of the hunters, and the only hunting type I still train for, are earthdogs. See my earthdog page for more information on this sport.
Performance training is only done as a board-and-train option. See the rates page for more information and feel free to contact me with questions about brush-up training, handling in performance events, or with any other questions.
