BlackJack is maturing into a lovely dog and shows great promise. 2016 will be very exciting as Nick debuts his dog late in the year. Nick teaches advanced-masters handling on Monday nights.
Rachel discovered her love of dogs when she met a little naughty puppy named Kubby in 2005. What started out as a way to make him tired enough to live with, soon became a passion for both of them, and the rest, they say–is history! Helping students to develop an awareness of themselves and their dog’s understanding of foundation skills is an integral part of her coaching style, and Rachel credits the success of her own dogs in Agility to the strong sense of teamwork she has developed through this approach. She currently enjoys training and competing with Chloe and Happy Mac (Border Collies), and is pleased to welcome puppy Picasso to the Eversdog (and MHDS) family.
