Agility

I grew up on a hobby farm in Central Alberta & had a love for animals at a very young age. I had everything from pheasants & quail to pigs & horses; we even fostered a fox kit for a while.

I began dog sports after I got my second Miniature Dachshund in 2007.  I started with puppy agility and added on skills like flyball and distance.  I was invited to apprentice with the SuperDogs performance team in 2008, and the rest is history so they say!  Today, I have traveled across North America performing with my 6 dogs; we are always working on enhancing old skills and learning new ones.  I aspire to one day earn a spot (or 3) on an International Agility team, with my Sighthounds, to represent Team Canada.

Jenn Schielke

What classes you can find me teaching:

Lvl 1 Obedience "Street Smarts", Conformation, Private Lessons

Jennifer has a long history in animal training. She began as an apprentice dog trainer in 1999 in North Vancouver where she grew into an instructor for Sierra K9. During the next few years Jennifer worked as a dog trainer, a police dog quarry and dabbled in marine mammal studies, training and husbandry mostly working with Orcas. The addiction was real and before long agility and conformation were added to the slate. In 2004 Jennifer registered her Kennel Name, Tarrango, with the Canadian Kennel Club and began showing, raising and sled training her Siberian Huskies. She continued to teach obedience, agility, puppy and tracking classes while living in Lethbridge Alberta and attending the University there; on the weekends Jennifer worked as an assistant Conformation Handler on both sides of the 49th parallel. Fast forward to 2007 and the wonderful world of Lure Coursing was introduced to Jenn - an immediate new love and appreciation for Sighthounds was born and Whippets began to take over her home and life. Today Jenn continues to show and grow in the land of whippets, she also enjoys spending time with her horses, working as a casual Paramedic and managing Barrett Veterinary Practice during the week.The years have given Jennifer a vast array of experience in many dog sports as well as day to day living, her training methods encompass positive reinforcement with a strong emphasis on behaviour shaping while working with people to ensure they are fair and structured to provide the best relationship with their canine companions.
