Name: Gill
Date registered: 26 October 2010


Loves animals and currently has a beagle. They take part in beagle runs during the cool, rainy season and do agility training and tracking. Having fun with her dog is very important and they love exploring new places and learning new things together. Recently they have embarked on the Trick Dog Certification program through Do More With Your Dog and had a blast! With the assistance of her best boy Gill became a Certified Trick Dog Instructor and, at the age of 9 1/2, Daks became a Trick Dog Champion. So, you can teach an older dog new tricks :) Gill is also a KUSA Working Trials judge and has completed the Advanced Certificate in Dog Behaviour through the Ethology Academy in 2014, achieving a distinction.
