    My training facility will be hosting Brandi Jacques at a seminar focusing on weaves and contacts next week. I don't know the name -- I thought someone might since there's a handful of Ontario agility folks on here.

    Is anyone familiar with her? Would you attend a 2 hour seminar hosted by her? What are her strengths?

    Cheers!

    She is fantastic. I hope Maf sees this as she took lessons from her. She is super nice and approachable. Considering her successes (running a shiba no less) she is one of the most down to earth and positive people I know.

    Been on the podium multiple times for the AAC regionals and nationals. Went to the worlds.

    I love Brandi. She is uber positive in classes and just chatting. I took a set of classes forever ago wit her pre having Smudge. Would go to her again in a heartbeat.

    Sadly she moved a while ago and I haven't seen her in forever. I miss her.

    I'd do the class.

    She sounds great. I'll definitely be checking her out then!

    I Googled her when I saw the posting, and the first photo I saw was her running a Shiba, so I figured she might be something special.

    Is she teaching in Toronto now? That seems to be what my Google-fu is telling me. I'm looking forward to meeting her.

    The puppy people never pulled her bio if that's where you are looking. She was on my FB, but I have to admit unless I am looking for someone I may not notice them poof. Seems she deleted herself.. She was in BC for a year plus.. twoish..

    Has Soshi the Shiba her star ;) A mal she worked hard with but I've never seen compete. She was doing half runs and leaving to party last time I saw her. Sadly her baby mal was hit by a car years ago in a freak door dash when she was across the country. I kept bugging her that I wanted her to get another shiba baby.

    I wasn't sure if she was back to stay or not. Where's the seminar being held?

    I think the groundwork is being laid for her to be at Who's Walking Who (on Parliament) next Tuesday but I'm not sure it's confirmed yet. As it stands now I think it's only been opened to staff but I suspect a few clients will attend as well.

    Sad to hear about her lost puppy. That's heartbreaking.

    The seminar is coming at a good time since Cohen's teeter needs polished. Actually, now that I think of it, all her contact obstacles need improvement. We're super green so far, so I guess it's to be expected. :p

    Small world, eh?

    Unfortunately we didn't have enough staff interested to fill the seminar spots, and didn't have enough time to publicize it to clients, so it fell through. I was so disappointed! I'm out of the loop though - I don't know if WWW is going to try hosting her again, or if she's doing her own thing. Where will it be posted?

    TY, I was looking at main seminars.. not the agility section :) I get off class early due to an exam.. So Smudge and I are going.. Smudge gets less effort and attention.. so for a dog with masters Qs.. We are a little disasterish..

    I'd look better taking Cider, but she doesn't need the attention as badly..

    I need to go pack stuff, but I'm in the library studying..
