  • Do you have a particular philosophy around course design or judging? Flow and dog’s path are very important to me, the perfect course is when no matter how technical it flows and is smooth for the dog. I also like to think outside the box for courses and games especially, I love to make courses interesting and make handlers say Wow.. cool lol
  • What do you like best about judging? Making courses is fun, but seeing them executed perfectly and everything goes how you thought it would is especially satisfying as a judge. But I love seeing people have fun with their dogs, grow and get better, but still go out and just have a love for the game, and sharing that with their pup.
