Barbara Rogers

Barbara Rogers has been an agility instructor for over eleven years, and has trained and competed in agility since the 1990's.  Barbara is White Mountain Agility School (WMAS) certified as an agility instructor. 

Teaching through classes, workshops, and private lessons, she utilizes positive training methods, such as clicker training and targets, and explores new methods as needed with her students to ensure all teams enjoy and succeed with their dogs in agility. She currently competes with her two Shetland Sheepdogs, Ruffian and Carmen.  Ruff has top titles in four different venues:  CPE C-ATE2, CACH-3, plus two 10,000 Point Awards; USDAA Perfomance Dog Championship; DOCNA Select Specialist Award; and AKC AXP and AXJ.  Ruff also won High in Standard 12" Level C at the 2012 CPE Nationals East, won third place in Perfomance Speed Jumping 12" at the 2012 New England USDAA Regionals; won multiple championships at DOCNA Championships East Events. 

Carmen, now five years old, has been on the podium three times at USDAA New England Regional events.  She has won the DOCNA North American Challenge repeatedly; and earn both her CPE C-ATCH and her USDAA Performance Dog Championship.  She also has her AXP in AKC.

Barbara earned numerous championship titles with her first two dogs, Marcus, an English Shepherd, and Ista, a super-sized Corgi (both rescue dogs) in three different venues as well, and wins at three different national events.  Although Ista and Marcus are both gone now, Barbara will always treasure what the taught her, and the great adventure of agility they started together!   She is endlessly fascinated with the willingness and intelligence of our canine companions.  She strives to take our relationships with our dogs--and the resulting enjoyment and success in agility--to heights.
