Although I have been lucking to live with a dog virtually my entire life, our life changed when we brought our first Aussie (Australian Shepherd) Jake came home with us in 2005. He was to be Deresa’s dog and she started training him as soon as he came home. As part of the training we did a basic agility program. I was hooked and moved to a larger training center and started competing with Jake. He was simply amazing and with in two years he earned his C-ATCH, an agility championship. From there everything changed and dog training became a full time mission.
