Hello, my name is Karey Grisdale

Karey with Kazz, Kelsey and Reason

Dogs have always been a big part of my life and I grew up with many different breeds. However, I always dreamt of having a Doberman of my own. My first Dobe came into my life in the early 1980's.

I became involved in Competitive Obedience in 1988 with my second Doberman, Zach. Over the years, with 5 different Dobes, I achieved many Obedience titles. These included: two OTCH's (Obedience Trial Champion) and multiple HIT's (High in Trial) and Top Obedience Doberman(s) in Canada. I have handled four of my Dobes to their Canadian Championships (Confirmation).

In 2002 I started competing in Agility. My most recent two Dobes both have attained their ATChC (Agility Trial Champion of Canada). Kazz achieved his Bronze Award of Merit, and Kelsey has achieved her Silver Award of Merit from the AAC (Agility Association of Canada). Kazz was competing at the Excellent level in CKC Agility and Kelsey is still competing at the Excellent level. I also competed at the Master and Excellent level with a Border Terrier "Cricket" who is owned by a friend. As my love of agility grew my first Border Collie came into my life. She is a little girl named Tees who is enjoying training and trialing in Obedience and Agility. She has also introduced me to the joys of herding. My newest partner is a male Border Collie named Reason. We are training for agility and obedience we have just entered our first agility trials.

I have been teaching puppy classes, competitive obedience classes and agility for about 20 years. I am a member of the CAPPDT, CKC, AAC and I attend seminars and courses each year to update my skills and learn new ones. It is a joy to help people build a great relationship with their own dog.

When I am not teaching or busy training my own dogs I enjoy boating, cross country skiing and gardening.

Devotion and Compassion

I have always loved training puppies and laying a strong foundation for a wonderful companion or team partner for any ring.
Puppies' brains are like sponges and I love to watch how quickly they learn in a positive environment.

Meet Stacey

I can’t imagine my life without a dog in it!

I have had several breeds of dogs throughout my life, but my first dog of my own was, at Karey’s suggestion, a beautiful and huge Doberman named Tara. Tara took me into the dog worlds of Confirmation and Obedience. We started out taking obedience classes for fun and eventually went on to obtain our C.D. When Tara was five we switched over and she was accepted into the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program. For five years Tara and I visited regularly at a local Seniors’ Home; we participated in the O.S.P.C.A. and St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog Anti-bite program at many Aurora and Newmarket Elementary Schools and I became a certified Evaluator for the Therapy Dog Program.

Then Sadie, a much smaller Doberman came into my life. Sadie brought me back to Confirmation and to the Canine Good Neighbour test. She was so different from Tara – very speedy and energetic. Sadie pushed me into the dog world of agility! We had a lot of fun working together as a team and entering into the occasional competition. With the very sudden loss of Sadie I found myself looking to a different breed.

Kali, a German Short-haired Pointer came along to help heal my heart. We have had tons of fun and loads of success under Karey’s supervision and using the Game On methods of puppy training. Kali is a well-trained, happy dog who loves to come to puppy class to show off her skills! I have been assisting Karey with the puppy classes for three years now and every class is a joy to participate in. I really enjoy watching the puppies as they learn and grow with their human partners.
