Elizabeth has been involved with dogs her entire life.  Like many other agility competitors, Elizabeth was originally involved in horses, participating in show jumping and cross country.  She grew up with cocker spaniels as pets, and many times had them doing broomstick “agility’ in the back yard.  

In 1992 she was given a young Collie mix as a gift and quickly found that he needed something to do.  She started in obedience, but found that her options were limited with a mixed breed dog.  In 1996 she found the sport of Dog Agility, and quickly was hooked.  Over the years she has participated in USDAA, AKC, ASCA & NADAC earning various titles.  Most notably with her dog Riggs she has earned the USDAA Performance Grand Prix National Champion title at the 2009 Cynosport world games and at the 2010 AKC Nationals she earned the 1st ever Preferred National Champion title.
