Our Instructors

Sno-King instructors have many years of experience competing and training dog agility. Before becoming an instructor, an individual is required to complete an agility title on at least one dog and to have successfully assisted in one or more sessions of classes at the level they are going to teach.

All of our instructors are currently competing with their dog(s) in one or more of the organizations that hold trials in our area. They are familiar with the rules and nuances of the various organizations and can help you prepare your dog to compete. We do not advocate one agility venue over another; our instructors are happy to help our students prepare for whatever type of agility they wish to participate in.
