Train with Agility Competitor, Christine Tschech

Four Handling Seminars – Jumps & Tunnels Only!

Saturday March 11, 2023, and Saturday March 18, 2023

Christine has been involved with agility for over 15 years and is currently competing in AKC, UKI, USDAA and AKC ISC (International Style Courses) with her two border collies, Kwik and Jack.  Christine’s accomplishments include:

  • US Team member (alternate) on the AKC 2023 European Open Team (competing in July 2023)
  • AKC National Finalist
  • UKI Open National Winner, as well as multiple UKI Open podium placements
  • UKI Northeast Regional Overall Winner
  • Multiple wins at UKI Regional Competitions

Christine loves working with students.  Her first and most important goal is to instill a love of the game in both the handler and the dog, regardless of the competition level. “It’s a game and if it’s not fun then we are not doing it right!”
