Some of the instructors....

Penny Winegartner

Penny’s first agility dog was an English Springer Spaniel, Shadoe, who
enjoyed agility at home, but did not like working before crowds. So this duo
didn’t go very far in the agility world. In 1992, Amy, a Border Collie puppy,
picked Penny as her agility handler and this team started competition in 1994.
This duo achieved success on both the regional and national levels, but had an
early end. Health problems necessitated early retirement for Amy at the young
age of 3½ years old, just short of their USDAA Masters Agility Dog title. In
the spring of 1997 Penny started competing with Dare (Moonquest’s Daretu), a
Belgian Malinois. Since then Dare and Penny have earned 24 agility titles in
four different agility organizations. Penny added a second Belgian Malinois to
her agility partners in 1999, Cris and they have already earned 22 agility
titles with limited showing. Penny recently added an English Cocker puppy to
her household and has future agility hopes for him. Both Shadoe and Amy are
waiting at the Rainbow Bridge and are missed daily.

Co-owner and founder of PAWSitive Impact Agility of Houston, Penny teaches
agility, is an agility judge for two different agility organizations and
presents agility seminars on an international basis and is a guest agility
columnist for Front & Finish. In 1996, Penny assisted Dr. Chris Zink, D.V.M.,
Ph.D. (author of "Peak Performance: Coaching the Canine Athlete" and Julie
Daniels (author of "Enjoying Dog Agility â€" From Backyard to Competition") in
editing and designing their book "Jumping A to Z â€" Teach Your Dog To Soar".
While all the above keeps Penny extremely busy she also tries to find time to
train her dogs in agility, obedience, tracking, and herding.
