Fun with Dogs and Dog Training

Sally has had a few dogs in her life and when Shaw's Training Center moved to the 20 acre farm here in Citra Fl. it just did not seem the same without a dog around.

2008 brought a young Australian Shepherd puppy into Sally's life.  This puppy came from Iowa with her littermate who belongs to Barb Copping.

Sally's puppy: Navrock's Love Connection aka "Connie" and Barb's pup: Navrock's Made For Each Other aka "Maddee" have opened up a whole new world of fun with dogs.

The pups and handlers were enrolled in classes with Marion-Alachua Dog Training and the rest is history.

Sally is now a regular volunteer instructor for "MADTA", teaching the Advanced Beginners classes. Connie and Sally have gone on to earn many titles in AKC, ASCA,UKC Obedience, Rally and Agility (Connie's favorite).

Sally has helped many new dog owners go from not knowing to much to having more fun earning titles as a team.

Below are a few of the dogs that have brought so much enjoyment and have even taught us "humans" a thing or two.
