Charlotte Rundgren in Aus!
Charlotte Rundgren has been training and competing very successfully in dog agility for over 20 years; first in the USA and now in New Zealand.
As a Certified Professional Canine Fitness Trainer, Charlotte runs classes for both agility and fitness through her training school, Dynamic K9s. Charlotte is a long term student of Susan Garrett's and is also an online instructor in Agility Nation and Susan’s agility handling program, Handling360.
Although dogs have always been part of her life, her first love was horses, and it was in the equine field that her ability as an animal trainer first became apparent. She became one of the youngest people to obtain BHSAI qualification of the British Horse Society and trained with top international dressage riders from the UK, Europe and the USA.
After a period of travel, Charlotte settled in the USA and it was there that she first became involved in the sport of agility.
Charlotte was fortunate to be able to train with many internationally respected trainers, including Susan Garrett, Mary Ray, Stuart and Pati Mah whilst developing her own training philosophies.
Since migrating to New Zealand Charlotte has contintued her education and studied online with Susan Garrett, Justine Davenport and Jessica Patterson to develop her handling and dog training skills. She has also enlisted the help of Shari Zelman Sprague and Debbie Gross to develop her fitness programme to keep her dogs, and her student's dogs in top notch condition.
Charlotte competed in the US from 1997 to 1999, attaining the title of USDAA Agility Champion with her Australian Shepherd, Shadow, and achieving top-10 ranking in USDAA (United States Dog Agility Association).
After migrating to New Zealand, Shadow achieved Agility Grand Champion status, thus becoming the only known dog to have become an agility champion in both the northern and southern hemispheres. During her career, Shadow obtained a total of 180 wins in competition. All this from a dog that was hugely fear-aggressive before Charlotte got her at five months old. A couple of years after moving to New Zealand Breenagh Chaos arrived on the scene, she was a very special border collie from Scottish herding lines. Chaos was an incredible dog both on and off the field of agility and also gained her Agility Grand Champion status in New Zealand.
What Charlotte will cover: 1. Fitness - Charlotte will be having an informal evening get together to talk fitness over a meal on the Friday Night.
2. Jump grids - focussing on form and also advanced for super charge jump grids - these are a lot of fun and teach dogs great skills and hopefully inspire you all to do more jump grids. Please note, you don't have to be H360 training to get great value out of this workshop.
3. H360 Skill testing - threadles, backsides, tight turns.
4. Handling - putting skills together and challenging them
