When Lynnea started agility in 2004 she worked through a lot of confidence building with a frightened little rescue dog named Gwen. The two grew together as a team and eventually earned championships in ASCA, AKC, and USDAA as well as competing at the top level in NADAC and CPE. It took years, but Gwen learned to trust the world around her and became a happy, steady agility partner!
In 2011 Lynnea got a Border Collie puppy full of drive, speed, and confidence. The two quickly learned how to work together and Trillian earned her championship in USDAA at just two years old. She has since earned Lifetime Achievement Awards, Top 10 placements at the National level, and has stood on the podium at local and regional events.
As an instructor, Lynnea has a patient understanding for the dogs that need time to build confidence as well experience for the high drive dogs that want to dive enthusiastically into every aspect of the sport. Lynnea continues to seek out knowledge in the agility world, and has participated in seminars with Stuart Mah, Melanie Miller, and many more great agility competitors.
