My Dogs

Each and every one of my dogs have taught me so much over the years. They have helped me grow as a trainer, handler and as a human. Every day, they are still educating me. I am better because of them. I try to live by these words ...

Rising Sun Right as Rayn, 7yr Border Collie
"Rayn" is my soul dog.  There is just something about her that is different and OH, SO magnificent!  She's an amazing teammate and the best noodle on the planet! We made multiple National Finals in Cynosports and the U.S. Open in 2019. 2021 Regional Grand Prix SILVER and byes to finals at 2021 US Open. 2022 Regional Grand Prix SILVER.

Maggie 10/1/2005 - 7/8/2021
My first agility dog who taught me so much!  Maggie was the most confident dog on the planet and loved to try new things.  I'm a bit lost without her, but her spirit visits me regularly and warms my soul.

Rising Sun High Performance Cam, 5yrs BC
"Cam" is very affectionate, loving and silly! I am excited for what the future holds for us! He is my big boy who has great zest for the game. He is powerful! Cam is competing in the top levels in UKI, USDAA and AKC. 2022 Regional Biathlon GOLD, 2021 European Open Tryouts, 2021 Rocky Mt. Classic Pentathlon GOLD, 2021 Colorado Classic Biathlon BRONZE, 2021 Regional Steeplechase SILVER, & byes to finals for 2021 US Open

"Geri" 8/1/2008 - 12/5/2022
Therapy Dog work was her thing, but she has been retired for a few years. Now, she's my full-time therapy dog!  Sweet & Loving, she still has her silly moments and likes to play with Cam. Geri loves going for hikes and holding the couch down in our motorhome.  She's been a great surrogate dog for all of my client's dogs that needed one thru their journey of behavior modification & training.
