is a lifetime dog lover, and has been owned by Doberman Pinschers since 1986. She started formal dog training in 2006 and became a Rally Obedience Instructor shortly after joining All Dog Adventures in 2011. Since then, she has become a Rally Obedience Judge for WCRL & UKC, and has accepted the position of General Manager for All Dog Adventures. As an avid Rally Obedience competitor, Melanie has earned over 40 titles competing with her dogs in multiple venues (AKC, C-WAGS, UKC, and WCRL). She is training her current companion, Georgia, for competition Obedience and Rally Obedience. As an instructor, Melanie finds great joy sharing knowledge and being a part of the relationship building between students and their beloved canines. She also considers it a privilege and honor to have a “front row seat” when serving as a judge. Melanie spends her volunteer hours serving as a Board Member for the All Dog Performance Sports Club (UKC) and the Cavalier Doberman Pinscher Club (AKC) as well as participating in Therapy Dog visits with Georgia through Caring Canines. In her spare time, she enjoys Weightlifting and taking in concerts.
