When I'm not grooming, training, or teaching I enjoy competing in Flyball, preparing to compete again in Rally Obedience, and generally playing with my border collies Brok and Po. It's not all just dogs. I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies including knitting, weaving, archery, and playing a bunch of musical instruments. I LOVE hearing from listeners. You are some of the best people that I've had the pleasure of being around. Feel free to reach out with questions, concerns, episode ideas, and feedback.
