MRS. SUE BARNETT of Avon, Connecticut attended her first Agility Trial as a spectator in 1997 at the Dalmatian Club of America National Specialty in Detroit. Upon returning home, she asked her Obedience instructor to “teach us the sport.” Her “Novice A” agility dog was a six-year-old Dalmatian that jumped in the 24” class. They attained their Excellent titles before he retired. Mrs. Barnett has trained and handled six Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, titling them in Conformation, Agility, Obedience, Rally, Trick Dog, Field, and Dock Diving.
She was licensed by AKC to judge Agility in 2012. She enjoys judging almost as much as she enjoys running her own dogs. She resides in Palm City, Florida and Avon, Connecticut with her husband Ron and their three Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, Squeegee, Nautique and Biscayne This is her first assignment at Westminster.
