(Nicki’s popular seminar for finding/handling the best lines for YOUR dog)
Nicki's handling style is influenced by OMD methodology. She has attended multiple OMD seminars over the past four years. She strives to stay current with recent trends in international course design and in December will attend a course design/handling clinic with Támas Tráj - known for his fun yet challenging courses in Europe.
Nicki has competed in Agility for 16 years with 7 dogs: 5 Border Collies and 2 Shelties.
She has over a dozen championships in National events (Standards and Jumpers) and has had success in multiple associations: AAC, CKC, FCI, USDAA, UKI, AKC.
Her success on course is rooted in emphasizing naturally understood cues by dogs; cues that dogs are born to understand: “My language is English, my dogs’ language is motion - where I move, how I move, when I move - They’ll respond to my motion whether I want them to or not. Learning to speak ‘motion’ is much easier than teaching my dogs to speak English”
She has worked with many students eager to learn more about motion based handling and has helped many discover what their dogs already knew! She has worked with beginners to World Team Members. Her experience training and competing with both large and small dogs has made her very well versed in the challenges presented to handlers on course. Nicki is a Masters Judge with the AAC and UKI. She is the Owner of Animotion Agility on Vancouver Island. She teaches classes in Duncan, is a seminar presenter and also offers Online Handling classes from Foundation to International.
