Hello, my name is Joanne and I am 58 and have lived with dogs my entire life. I have owned several different breeds over the years, all working dogs. I have participated in multiple venues - herding with my Collie, obedience with my Doberman, hunting with my Jack Russell and more. My current dog is a 2 year old GSD named Emma who has completed her basic obedience and begins training for Search & Rescue on August 1st. I am new to SAR, however, I chose Emma specifically for this discipline. I am excited to begin our work together.
