Joanne joins the OYRDTC Instructor core with multiple years of experience in obedience and in nose work instruction. She has been training dogs for more than a decade, and still loves every minute of it! While she enjoys obedience training immensely, her nose work classes have become a continuous source of pleasure for both her and (she hopes) her students. Her nose work instruction is the main reason she was invited to join OYRDTC, where she feels like she has found a home. Joanne believes that dog training should be a joy for both the trainer and the dog, and tries to instill that feeling in all her students. Joanne shares her home with Twister, a pit mix. Additionally, Joanne is an AKC certified CGC Evaluator.
