Carilee (Cole) Moran

Tracking is a great activity for those who love to be outdoors, love to watch dogs use their most notable ability, and enjoy the camaraderie of an invigorating, challenging sport. She has earned-15 Tracking Dog (TD) -6 Tracking Dog Excellent (TDX) -1 TDU (Tracking Dog Urban) . It’s easy to see that tracking is one of her favorite activities. She is a retired AKC tracking judge, and is currently preparing two dogs (a Belgian Tervuren and a Belgian Malinois) for her first try at Variable Surface Tracking (VST) titles.
In addition, Carilee has done just about everything else: -15 Companion Dog (CD) -8 Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) -4 Utility Dog (UD) -1 Agility Champion (AGCH) -6 Conformation Champion (Ch) She combines this with 8 years of experience racing sled dogs, along with accomplishments in flyball, canine musical freestyle, FASTCAT, barn hunt, dock diving, and even the Belgian Sheepdog Club of America’s Messenger Dog titles. She has written the quarterly column on the Belgian Malinois in the AKC Gazette for the last ten years, and wrote the Belgian Sheepdog column for four years prior to that, hoping to share observations about the Belgians breed that are relevant to everyone. It’s fair to say she has tried her hand at most things.

Fenzi Loose Leash Walking Presentation

The Fenzi Method: Cutting Corners to Loose Leash Walking

Is your dog a chronic leash puller? If leash walking is a misery then this webinar is for you! The Fenzi “cutting corners” method can work even for dogs where other approaches have failed. It requires no food, no highly controlled environments, and allows for reasonably inexperienced handlers. This method is equally suited to a young puppy on dog directed socialization outings as it is for strong adult dogs with years of practice pulling on walks. And the best part? It works fast and without compulsive techniques by reducing frustration in both the puller and the pullee!
If you are tired of being dragged around or a trainer who simply wants more options for helping your clients, then join Denise and hear what she has to say about an entirely new approach!
