Lucy with Lisa Pattison was the first australian shepherd to earn a  Summit title in K9 Nose Work at the first trial of this advanced level! 


 Wyn ("StormWatch WhirlWynd") and Peg Forte earned Flat Coat Retriever ‘Best of Opposite’ at the venerable Westminster Dog Show. Wow! Wyn came to Canine Partnership to perfect her eye contact with Peg. Great job Wyn and Peg!

Torrie (“Jimanie’s Golden Touch”) Pembroke Corgi, earned her teacup Agility title – Games 1- Congratulations!


Luna and Kris are an amazing team. Luna is a high energy German Shepherd who used to blow right by the scent hides placed near the start line. Kris’s work in class helped Luna learn to engage her nose right from the beginning. Now that’s K9 Nose Work!
