Becky Dewire currently teaches our Beyond Basic (CGC prep) and Advanced Basic (CGCA prep) classes, and our rally obedience classes. Becky has also taught our STAR Puppy and Basic classes, and is an AKC CGC evaluator. Becky began training with us in 2013 or 2014 with her then 8 or 9 year old beagle mix, Ike. Ike was the poster child for training an older dog! Ike seemed to love the training, learning, and spending the quality time with Becky. He was delightful to watch. Becky is training and beginning to compete with her 3 yr old Brittany, Pilot.
