“I love a fast long walk! My specialty is heeling”

I have competed in Masters level Dog Agility and I have many years of obedience training under my belt. 6 rescue dogs and one retired Iditarod racer live in my home. My family and I have fostered dogs for over 15 years, working with the most difficult, to get them placed in their forever homes. As far as walking goes, I am great with pulling dogs and going long distances. I understand the importance, both mentally and physically for dogs to be active.
