Education:

I have been blessed to work with some of the finest trainers, to attend amazing seminars and camps, to participate in incredible competitions, and to have grown a network of friends and colleagues that will be forever a part of this experience.

For all the incredible skills I’ve been taught, I have understood though, that the one aspect of the sport that is on me, is my mental strength, and of my connection, my true connection, to my canine partner.

My Zen of Archery and Agility

Archery target and bow

The discipline of archery is simple: Focus. Breathe. Trust. Repeat. To master this ancient art requires patience and centering, consistency, and a powerful mindset of mastery.

Before becoming a student of agility, I was a competitive archer. Archery provided me with skills and a viewpoint of the need for a “wholistic” approach to training that transitioned well to dog agility. That foundation led me to understand that handling the mind is equally as important as handling the lines of a course.

That is what I want for you. And, it can be yours, with an Agility Mindset.

Nothing is worth more than this day.
A meeting of the hearts leads to a meeting of the mind, and unimagined success. “Nothing is worth more than this day.” ~Goethe

Focus. Breathe. Trust. Repeat.
