It all started when her first dog Tess, an English Springer Spaniel. Tracy competed with Tess in Obedience, and Flyball in Canada and was a member of the Superdogs team. As part of a Superdogs Performance, Tess would retrieve a tissue for Tracy after she sneezed. Someone suggested Tracy send a video of the performance to David Letterman’s Stupid Pets, which she did. A few months later she got a call from the show, and was invited to New York appear!
After moving to the USA, Tracy has continued spend most of her spare time competing and titling with various breeds in AKC Obedience, Agility, K9 Nosework, Dock Diving, Lure Coursing, Earthdog, Barnhunt, Tracking and Schutzhund. Agility has remained one of Tracy’s favorite games to play with not only her dogs, but also with others. She has taught group agility classes for the serious competitor for over 10 years. Highlights of her agility career include earning a Top Ten Agility ranking with her Whippet Simon, earning a MACH on her Jack Russell Terrier Wyatt, as well as competing in the AKC Agility Nationals in Tulsa Oklahoma.
