Our group of long term instructors who selflessly give their time to train all kinds of dogs (and handlers) has inspired Maureen to instruct at USDTC.

"Six years ago I rescued sister Australian Cattle Dogs separated by 500 miles, and reunited them. I started with obedience, and before I knew it, was nudged into AKC agility by USDTC!

I am certain I've learned more than my 'girls' when it comes to proper handling and the experience of 'trialing'!   Jumping off an A- Frame, zoomies around the ring, to joy with a title-  all add to the amazing adventure.  Lots of effort, but even more rewards....a deep bond with my partner."
