zooM zooM Agility Academy

zooM zooM Agility Academy was formed on my love of teaching agility and concept based games training. Training is available for all levels, and all ages of dog from puppies to seniors, from beginners to advanced levels.  We are a small facility that specializes in smaller class sizes.

Home: Welcome

Instructor

zooM zooM Agility Academy was founded in May of 2021 for my Tollers Zoom and Image (MM). No longer here but always with me. In 2020 I became certified as a Pro Dog Trainer. Along with teaching agility I teach games based  training helping dogs to be more focused and optimistic.

I started agility in 1998 with my first Jack Russell Terrier Rascal. A couple of Jack Russell Terriers, a Corgi, and six Tollers later I still continue to compete in Agility along with obedience, rally, barn hunt and dock diving.

I began teaching agility in 2002. I continued to teach at several facilities before starting my own facility in May of 2021.  Now retired from my Corporate job, teaching is my full time focus.

Zoom (6/21/11- 9/17/18)

Zoom was my heart, This dog had so much strength and was taken way too soon. Zoom earned her first CATCH in 2015, went on to get 3 CATCHs, 4 CTATCHs and her CATE in 2017. All while fighting liver cancer. She got the gamble at the  2016 CPE Nationals which will always be a highlight for me in her career.

Spark NADAC.jpg

Spark (5/28/12 -8/5/20)

Spark only attended one CPE National in 2014.  While he did not earn any large titles he was by far the sweetest dog I have owned.  He was super handsome.  Spark loved to swim and play frisbee, He was taken too soon by an unexpected heart tumor.
