Around the nation, Jen Pinder is a highly
sought after agility educator. Her abilities to evaluate and problem
solve are some of her finest skills. Even better is her way of communicating
this information to the handler and getting them to communicate
better with their dog.
Jen has represented the American Kennel Club at the World Cup in
Europe with Border Collie Static. She also was invited to compete
at Crufts (the Worlds largest dog show) in England in 2003. She
is the first American to compete at Crufts in Agility. In the USA,
Jen has been competing at the highest level of agility in both USDAA
and AKC. She won the 26" USDAA Nationals in 2003 with Static
and has been a USDAA Finalist for the past 8 years. She has achieved
this with several dogs (Ajax (Border Collie), Static (Border Collie),
and Divot (Jack Russell Terrier). This ability to train and compete
with different styles of dogs is what helps her educate both larger
dogs and small dogs alike.
For the past 6 years, she has been a member of the Say Yes dog training
team and has
tought at both Clean Run Camp and Power Paws for several years.
Jen shares her life with fellow agility competitor and husband Bill
in Lapeer, MI.
