Tracy Sklenar has been training dogs and competing in dog agility for almost 20 years and is perhaps the only handler in the world who has won medals in international Finals as a coach for 2 different countries AND as a handler with her own dog in both team and individual events.

 

She is on the faculty of Agility University and Agility MasterClass and also travels extensively to teach seminars and compete. Her “Feet Forward” approach to handling and emphasis on connection and reinforcement have helped handlers excel at every level and with every type of dog!

Currently, she shares her life with 6 dogs: 3 BC/terrier mixes (13 year old Export, 10 year old Matrix, and puppy Hot Sauce), a BC/Croatian mix (5 year old Voodoo) and two Papillons (6 year old Crusher and 4 year old Macho Nacho). In the ring, their runs are noted for focus, accuracy, consistency and speed!

TAMMY MOODY

Shauna has been involved in the dog world in one way or another for over 10 years.  For the last seven years, her focus has been agility, where she has made her mark in the competitive agility field.  She is admired for her smooth handling and well-trained skills which enables her dogs to have strong independent behaviors.  

Shauna has run many different breeds but currently owns Border collies, Sport mixes and a Staffy.  She puts a lot of emphasis on proofing skills to allow for less management and more independence.

Shauna took home regional and national championships with her first agility dog, Zoe, who was a shepherd mix. Recently, Shauna made a statement at IFCS World Championships winning a gold medal 3 years in a row with her border collie, Splash.

After graduating from East West College of Healing Arts in 2006, Maddy started her career at a local chiropractic office, helping patients get back to enjoying their everyday activities.  Shortly after starting agility with her first dog, Cody.  Turner realized that dogs were athletes and may need the therapy associated with being one.  This realization paved the way for her to open WetDog Wellness Center and her passion to work with animals.

She is also a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer through University of Tennessee and FitPaws Master Trainer.   Maddy lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and their three dogs, Fry, Bones and Dio.
