Judy Peterson has been an instructor at Jump Start for 17 years. She enjoys teaching a variety of classes including Home Manners, Home Manners 2, and Fun For Fido. She has been a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator for the last 10 years, and also teaches a prep class for two of the CGC tests. Judy’s goal in teaching is to give owners the skills to teach their dogs to become an enjoyable member of their family.
Judy competes with her four dogs in a variety of dog sports including agility, rally obedience, canine nosework, and barn hunt, and has titled numerous dogs in those sports. One of her dogs is a therapy dog and visits assisted living facilities. Judy was recently out for several months on medical leave, and since starting to compete again last September she has had a great time putting 8 new titles on her dogs in 4 months. Judy also works with Cardigan Welsh Corgi Rescue placing Corgis in new homes. She has 3 Chinese Cresteds and a Wire-haired Dachshund.
