Woo Hoo! We're gonna do a seminar with Jen Pinder!

We're getting pretty excited about the the weekend of the 30th. On the weekend we are doing another USDAA trial, and on Thursday before we are attending an agility workshop with Jen Pinder.

Jen was a member of the 2003 and 2004 AKC World Cup Agility Team. She is a full-time dog agility trainer who teaches lessons locally in Lapeer MI, just outside of Detroit. She also travels around the country giving agility seminars and workshops. Jen has been a core instructor at Susan Garrett's Say Yes dog agility camps for the past 4 years and has recently taught at both Clean Run Camp, PowerPaws and BARK Agility Camp.

She was originally introduced to the sport of agility in 1992 with her female boxer. She is a 5 time semi-finalist for the USDAA Grand Prix and a 4 time finalist in the USDAA Grand Prix. She has made it to the finals with both her Border Collies: Ajax and Static, and her Jack Russell Terrier Divot. In 2001, she took 3rd in the Grand Prix, 2nd at AKC Nationals, and was on the 1st place team at the USDAA Team competition with her Border Collie, Static.

Jen's main focus, both with her dogs and others, is to build a strong relationship with the dog and then to work on agility handling. Her emphasis on building a solid foundation in jumping, contacts and attention contributes to her success in agility today.

We are SOOOOO looking forward to this workshop! Yeah!
