Very "Proudly", Fox River Dog Obedience and Proud-Haus Shepherds have joined hands to become Proud K9 Dog Obedience!!
I, myself, have been training my own dogs since I was a grade schooler, exhibiting in obedience
since I was a little thing, learning from my family. In 1999, I began working with Carol Lyon,
owner of Fox River Dog Obedience; and actually knew my grandmother from the kennel
club they both belonged to and that Carol eventually worked at as their obedience trainer.
Funny what a small world it is!!!! As 30+ years of training went by for Carol, she started looking
for a replacement so "there will still be good dog training in this area for people to get when I'm gone."
In 2001, I took over as owner and head trainer of Fox River Dog Obedience, expanding
on the programme that Carol had started all those years ago.
Today, I use MissY as my full-time
dog, as well as one of my demo dogs in the obedience programme.
