I have owned Vizslas since 1995 and have been training dogs all of my life. I have competed in the AKC events of conformation, hunting tests, field trials for pointing breeds, agility, obedience and rally. My dogs are titled in Conformation, hunting, obedience, rally, agility and Canine Good Citizen. I have bred Vizslas since 1992 and have worked nationally with the Vizsla Rescue Program. I believe in treating dogs with positive methods, patience and fun.

In retirement, Cindy owned and operated a home based canine day care and boarding business for three years. This provided numerous opportunities to interact with many dogs of different breeds, ages and training levels.
Cindy believes that all dogs and trainers can learn, but the techniques and amount of training to reach success will vary with each individual canine and human!
I have been competing in AKC Agility, Obedience and Rally for over 18 years with both large breed(German Shepherds) and small breeds (Papillons). Both my GSD have received many AKC agility
titles (Masters) and I am currently trialing with my current GSD working on her EXC title.
My Papillon has received his CGC, CD and RE titles and my GSD have received their CGC, CD and RN titles.
I have trained under many local trainers in both Obedience, Rally and Agility including Evie Van Uden, Noelle Nasca, Cindy Rathbun, Mary Ellen Pratt, Dina Bistany and Megan Maholic.
I believe in training with positive reinforcement and making training fun for both you and your dog.
