She became an American Kennel Club Agility Judge, has completed championships on dogs that she has bred in AKC conformation events, picked up a few Rally titles, and has achieved many Master Agility Championships with her dogs. Rene has now been competing in and judging AKC Agility competitions for over 30 years. She currently competes in dog agility with her Sheltie, Parker, her Pomeranian, Roscoe, and her rescue dog, Patty. Rene is one of our groomers as well as the owner of Holidawg.

Shelby Fitch


Taking an interest in dogs like her mother, Shelby spent most of her childhood learning how to train and take care of the family dogs. Shelby began competing in dog agility when she was only 5 years old. Growing up in such a dog oriented home, Shelby gained a deep understanding of dog behavior. Thanks to her upbringing, she has achieved 10 AKC Master Agility Championships with her dogs and has attended the AKC National Agility Championship 6 times, making the finals with her 16” border collie, Swift, in 2011. Shelby is currently training with her 3 dogs with hopes to compete in the near future. She took over management in Dec 2016, building a clientele and revamping the online presence and day to day operations with her expertise from past experience in the field. She has now taken a step back from the kennel operations to build a new dog training business, Top Dog Training Center.
