about Four Paw Fun Dog Training
Owner/Trainer - Tina Stafford

I started my training in 1990  when I bought my first Jack Russell Terrier, I had seen the dogs on TV and thought they were so cute... Boy did I need to learn quickly, I took classes from award winning trainers in Competition Obedience, Had private trainers come to my house, and took a ton of classes. The one thing I learned very quickly was that this breed will not tolerate abusive training techniques, the more I got aggressive the more they got aggressive... go figure! By 1996 I was showing JRTs in conformation, racing, earth work, Agility and taking them back east to hunt with hunting judges.

I started to have the most fun running my dogs in Agility. Taking classes, attending seminars and reading numerous books about the sport. In 1998 I got a job teaching at the Bethel K9 Training Center I was teaching obedience and quickly had my boss buying agility equipment and fencing off back yard. Some of these students are still with me today... Most have different dogs then when they started but have also found the love of this sport. I started my own business in 2005 renting a covered lighted horse arena on Spruce rd. and adding an indoor facility at my own property, Im in the process of finishing a arena of my own which will hopefully be up and running this year 2016.
