Terry Walker was introduced to the world of K9 obedience watching her mom, Elsie train and compete. She has been training and competing with her dogs since the early 1970’s when she received her first puppy, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Pokey, as a birthday present. A little over a year later they earned the Companion Dog Title with multiple class placements and High Junior Handler awards. So began a lifelong journey and love of dogs; especially Pembroke Welsh Corgis and K9 obedience.
The family home has included many breeds over the years; German Shepherd, Doberman Pinscher, Rottweiler, Miniature Poodle, Basenji, Border Collie, Tibetan Spaniel, Belgian Sheepdog, Chinese Crested, German Pinscher, Siberian Husky and French Bulldog. The breeds Terry has shared her life and trained include Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Flat-Coated Retrievers, German Shepherd, Border Collie and French Bulldogs. K9 Obedience is her first love, but Terry also enjoys participating in Therapy Dog visits, Rally, Scent Work, Tracking, Dock Dog, Herding, Conformation, Field and Agility.
Terry has been a member, trainer and leader of 4H. She has been teaching K9 classes for over 30 years ranging from Family Pet, Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog prep, Competition Obedience, Scent Work, Rally, Dock Diving and Tricks. She is an AKC Obedience, Scent Work judge and CGC evaluator.
