Debbie Peck : Agility, Conformation and Obedience Instructor

Debbie Peck

Agility, Conformation and Obedience Instructor

I am currently an instructor in beginning agility, conformation and summer puppy class. Dogs have been a part of my life for forever, but as a young adult I acquired my first pure-bred dogs and started competing in obedience competitions. Shortly after being introduced to the dog show world through obedience trials, I started breeding my English Springer Spaniels under the Sademont kennel name, trying very hard to keep the trainability and intelligence in the breed while maintaining the health and genetic integrity. Most of my spare time has been spent competing and promoting the sport of dog training. I have titled dogs in obedience, tracking, conformation and agility. I have maintained a multi-dog household for more than 30 years so I usually have one senior dog, one mid-life dog and one youngster in my house at all times. It’s fun to see the cycles of life and be reminded that the youngsters become the seniors way too fast.
I love teaching at CABTC. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone progress with their dog, and if the students choose to compete, then I get to celebrate their successes with them!
