 I (Marisa) have been training dogs for almost 16 years.  I started with a shepherd named Schnapps and haven't looked back since!  Myself and my dogs have been featured on numerous television shows and at national specialties.  I take a positive approach to training any dog and I train and handle all of my dogs myself no matter what the sport.  I started with agility and have progressed to conformation training when I received my first chin in 2000.  We have trained and titled in conformation, agility, obedience, and rally.  We have tried tracking, herding and flyball.  You never know where or when you might see me at a show!

I am available for seminars in agility, conformation or canine massage therapy.  I am located in Greensboro, NC.
