Karen Phillips
I have been training and competing with dogs for almost 20 years. I am a member of Cleveland All Breed Training Club (CABTC) and started my training with my labs at CABTC. It was there that the bug bit me and soon I was shadowing instructors. I teach basic and puppy obedience, pre-agility, rally, beginning agility and my favorite, tracking.

I currently have 2 goldens that are shown in tracking, agility, rally obedience, field and conformation. I am an AKC CGC evaluator and STARR puppy instructor.
