Wendy SilveiraRally Novice
Wendy hails from South Africa where she began her love affair with dog training with her beloved Rough Collie, Rob Roy.
Moving to America she started training in Rally when it was still a non-regular class. Her passion for Rally was born with Chelsea, a spirited red field Golden who excelled in the Rally ring, As a team they epitomized the spirit of Rally: having fun in the ring and making it look easy. Sadly Chelsea lost her battle to Cancer when she was not yet 5.
Having fallen in love with Goldies, Wendy acquired her second golden from an excellent working line and went on to obtain her RE with Kelly Ann, a lovely blonde golden. Bitten by the Obedience bug, she has gone on to obtain Kelly's CD and is working on her Open title. Kelly's joie de Vie makes her an ideal dog for doggie dancing (Canine freestyle), which has become another passion of Wendy's.
In 2010 Kelly Ann was bred and Janey Full of Promise came into the world. Wendy is presently working on Rally with Janey. With her RN under her 'collar', Janey is living up to her name!
Wendy has judged Rally at all levels at numerous fun matches. As a long time English teacher, she enjoys interacting with her doggy students and imbuing them with her enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of dog training.

|My mission is connecting people with their dogs and the community.
I come from a very strong Competition Obedience family. My parents were very successful trainers. I have raised and trained nine Golden Retrievers, mostly in Obedience and Agility. I enjoy dabbling in Tracking, Field/Hunting training; and Therapy dog work. My dogs have been selected to do some modeling ads and videos.
I have been a trainer at several Dog Training Clubs and local Community Centers over the past twenty years.
My crew of canines has been bred, trained and owner handled by me. I have put several titles on my dogs in Obedience, Agility, and International Championship. I will continue to pursue training and breeding. This is my passion.
