Victoria has been training dogs for as long as she could remember. From years of borrowing her neighbor’s dogs to take on walks, her parents finally relented and got her a puppy, and soon she and her young border collie were inseparable. From early on Victoria was borderline obsessed with agility and dreamed of nothing more than trailing her dog. Of course they did all the standard obedience, CGC, herding, and rally classes, but agility was still a newer sport so she took all the information she could from one little dog agility magazine in her possession to learn.
So armed with several buckets for jumps, sticks for weaves, and various planks of wood she made her own course with which to train her dog (and all the other neighborhood dogs.) As the popularity grew, so did the availability of classes. Soon she was begging anyone she could to take her to seminars, trials, and events. At the age of 12 she was asked to host the dog agility portion of the summer community day where she ran her dogs as well as the fellow kids on her junior handler team. Since then Victoria has successfully shown five dogs in the agility ring both in and out of her home state of Pennsylvania.
Years have gone on, and although Victoria has put away the buckets and rudimentary sticks for training, her passion for training has never ceased. She is committed to teaching all dogs, no matter what breeds, breeding, age, and sharing her love for everything training to their owners. Her foundation of instruction is built on having the best relationship with your dog as you can, and letting that be the foundation for any type of training, sport, or activity you strive for.
On a personal level, Victoria is new(er) to Texas, having moved down from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania two years ago. She is a project manager for a group of engineers in Waller, TX. Outside of work she is very active and passionate about volunteering at a therapeutic riding barn in the area, and currently training for a half marathon in the fall. Along on this whole journey is her three year old border collie named Pilot. They live on the airport (just a happy coincidence.) He is her buddy and she is committed to filling his life with endless walks, lots of agility, and all the chick fil a runs he can handle!
