Title: Looking for Instructor - South Central PA
Post by: AgileStrays on July 11, 2012, 07:43:06 AM
Does anyone know of a good NADAC-based agility instructor in the south central PA area (near Lancaster/York/Harrisburg)? I'm an experienced handler, but recently started trialing my younger dog in NADAC and would like to find classes/lessons specifically geared toward NADAC. I also recently adopted a deaf dog and have started some very basic foundation work, but would like to get her out working with an instructor as well. Thanks!

I would check out High Octane. http://www.highoctaneagility.com/ (http://www.highoctaneagility.com/)

Especially Dan and Maureen Burke. Maureen is a NADAC judge and both Dan and Maureen's club host NADAC trials in addition to other venues too.

So I know they can train you in a way compatible with NADAC.

I know Maureen/High Octane and have taken a couple of private lessons from her. Believe me, if she were closer, I'd be going there for regular classes. Unfortunately, it's a solid 2 hour drive one way for me, so not feasible for classes/lessons on a regular basis. Frederick and Pasadena MD are a similar distance. I would really need something within the 1 hour drive range to make it workable for me.
