I am the Committee Chairman for UScA’s Tracking Committee. I have laid track for UScA events since 1976. I have laid track or coordinated tracks for many club trials, regional trials, and since 1991 National events and one world event. I have competed at 9 national level events, and many regionals. I have titled over 16 dogs to north of 60 titles. I am most proud of helping my club obtain over 600 titles.
I joined USCA in September 2006 and have remained a loyal member ever since. Tornado Alley Hundesport in the Mid-Central Region is my home club. Two different GSD dogs have provided me with the jubilation of obtaining FH1 titles with one of those dogs being HOT. I have been honored to have laid tracks at club events, three regional events, three USCA IPO3/IGP3 Nationals, and two Working Dog Championships. My passion about tracking, track-laying and constantly striving to improve my training and knowledge is ongoing. I am honored again to be chosen to be on the USCA National Tracking Team with the best team of track-layers and wish all the competitors a 100 point track
I have been training, trialing, showing, tracking and competing with dogs for over 40 years. I am the President & training director for Outlaws Working Dog Club. I have coordinated & laid tracks for our club trials. I have trained & titled multiple dogs in both Schutzhund & AKC tracking to levels of IGP 3 multiple times as well as FH titles in Schutzhund and multiple dogs to TDX titles in AKC tracking. I have a great deal of tracking experience in all types of terrain & conditions including snow storms! I am a retired school teacher of 25 years. I hold tracking seminars now & give training & tracking lessons for handlers. I thoroughly enjoy teaching handlers how to lay tracks , train their their dogs to track & how to read their dogs when tracking. I have competed in regionals in both CA and Colorado & FH competition at Working Dog Championships. I have learned that Tracking is the great equalizer in Schutzhund competitions and I will always work as hard as I can and do everything in my power to lay competitors a 100 point track.
