I have finished well at the club and regional levels, earning 1st place in two regionals at the IPO 2 Level, and 2nd in the S/W regional at the IPO 3 level. Tracking is a passion of mine. I truly love my time in the field with the dogs, refining their skills and watching them progress. As to my judging style, I always do my absolute best to be fair and consistent in evaluating every competitor from start to finish, and I want to wish every Competitor the absolute best of Luck!!

October 2016 Club Trial
I started in the sport of Schutzhund in 2003. From the very first time I showed up at the local club's training field, I was hooked! Since that day, I have lived and breathed this incredible sport 7 days a week. It’s a never ending learning experience and the bond you develop with your dogs is unsurpassed by anything I’ve ever done before. My entire life, I have strived to be the best at whatever I do in life, and this sport is no exception. Although I have yet to find "THE" dog with the temperament and qualities to get me to the higher levels of competition, I have taken the dogs I have bought or bred, and trained them to the highest level they are capable of.
