Outside COS

I am a dog trainer and offer dog obedience classes through the Mt. Shasta Recreation District. My German Shepherds and I enjoy obedience training and competitions and becoming more involved in other fun activities such as agility and tracking.

Life is an adventure. I recently moved from Washington and Oregon and have returned to my native state of California. My family (including shepherds) and I love traveling, camping, hiking, swimming and exploring the great outdoors.
