We hope you enjoy your visit.
Bob and Trudy are my English Springer Spaniels. Please check out Bob's page to see what he is up to. Trudy is working on house-training and attending puppy classes.
A little information about their mom:
Michelle Armitage, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I started training dogs when I was 12 years old. I never had dogs as a kid and would walk the neighbours dogs. One owner was kind enough to take me to weekly dog obedience classes. I was bitten by the obedience bug and have been ever since.
I trained a Vizsla, Labrador and Dalmatian to their CD, each of these dogs before I was 18 years old and each dog was owned by a different person. I learned a lot from training different breeds.
After a short break (dating, marriage!!), I returned to the dog world and trained my own dogs. I had a Beagle "Baxter" and trained him to one leg shy of his Canadian OTCH (which was awarded at the spry age of 13) and an English Springer Spaniel "Kelly" to her Canadian OTCH. Kelly achieved High in Trial awards and first class placements during her obedience career. Baxter kept me humble and in the ring for many years. I learned patience and experienced joy and pride in all his efforts.
I am a licensed obedience judge with the Canadian Kennel Club. I love to judge and see the variety of breeds performing in the ring. I have taught obedience for many years with Bytown Dog Obedience Club in Ottawa. I have given a seminar with Jack McKissock (CKC judge and my Mentor) on obedience handling and improving "your" score in the ring by reducing handler errors.
I am kept busy with my doggy activities and love every minute of it.
Special mention and many thanks to my friend Arlene Blum of Dilly Doodles Designs for creating this site for me as a gift. She is the designer and "webmistress". Without her expertise, these pages would not be here. Thank you Arlene.
