Sheila started training agility more than 2 decades ago with her first dog, a Rottweiler rescue , as a way to work on confidence building. She has since owned and trained an Australian Shepherd and five Border Collies. Sheila recognizes not only the importance of strong foundation skills for dogs starting their agility careers, but also the importance of building a positive relationship between each dog and its handler.
She has taken classes and seminars with many national team members and international competitors as well, and has achieved numerous agility titles with several of her dogs including MACH, ADCH and PDCH.
Although Sheila has taken a few years off of competing in agility to pursue herding , ( her BC Zain is a NEBCA Novice Finals Champion) she still enjoys teaching agility to her own dogs as a way of enhancing their teamwork.
We are excited to have her a part of our Inspire K-9’s team and can not wait to see how her years of experience will bring so much to our agility teams!
