Jean Mac Ilroy - Agility Instructor

Teaching movement skills in my former career as a physical education instructor and successful volleyball coach has always interested me. Now, in retirement, I enjoy applying this to dog agility.

I compete actively with Kody, my border collie, at the excellent/master's level in AKC and CPE. We have also competed in NADAC, UKC, USDAA and APDT rally. Kody is quick to tell me whenever I do anything wrong.

In addition to taking classes in all areas of training at Bella Vista, I attend seminars with Claudia Bates, Donna Brown, Paula Goss and Judy Kolva. Leslie Hoy and I have team-taught Saturday morning agility sessions, and I enjoy working with teams at all levels. I love to see our students connect with their dogs and become a team, start competing, fine-tune their handling skills and just have fun together.
