I’ve been a life-long dog lover, but in early 2011 I fell in love with the sport of canine nose work as an activity for my greyhound. And more importantly BoomBoom fell in love with it too- and we’ve been at it ever since! Beginning as an apprentice instructor under the guidance of Pam Belcher.
I’ve been teaching nose work since 2012- or maybe I should say the dogs have been teaching me! I earned my certification as a nose work instructor (CNWI) in February of 2015.
