From the 2013 Nationals:
I am very honoured to have been asked to judge the AAC nationals on the 25th anniversary and hope everyone has a great time with their canine partners. The 25th anniversary is a great achievement for the AAC.
I live in Dartmouth Nova Scotia with my wife (Heddy) of 39 years. I have 2 daughters, Michelle (Eric) who lives in Vancouver with our 3 grandchildren, and Leanne who is now backing in Halifax after spending 5 years in Hong Kong.
I started agility in 2002 and got hooked on it with my first Toller Lexy. I currently compete with my 2 Nova Scotia Duck Tollers, Beamer who is 12 1/2 years young and Jag who is 4. Both have different and great personalities and they keep me humble.
I have been the president of our club, CAANS for the past 7 years. Currently I am the NS director on the AAC board and the liaison for the judge’s advisory committee. I have enjoyed judging across the country and meeting new people as I go.
Best of Luck to all…….and have fun! Rick and the Tollers
