Hi, I'm Mary Martin and I have been training dogs for 16 years. Over those 16 years, I've shown in obedience, agility, conformation, herding and therapy dog work.  

My dogs have earned advanced obedience titles up to and including AKC's Utility title. We have earned the CDX title in both AKC and UKC obedience.  

In agility, I have earned over 100 titles, in all levels, from several different agility organizations: AKC, UKC, NADAC, CPE and USDAA. I have shown and titled dogs from 3 different breed groups and 5 different jump heights - from 8 inches to 24 inches. In UKC agility, my dogs have earned Champion titles and a Champion Excellent title. In AKC, we have earned 5 Master titles, 15 Excellent titles and a MACH. Not only have I handled my own dogs, but I've also trained and handled other people's dogs in the ring.

My training philosophy is teaching people how to get the most from their dogs. I try to individualize and personalize each handler's skills to work well with their own dog and sometimes the handler's own limitations. I also feel it is necessary for both the dog and handler to enjoy the training experience, so they can work together as a happy team no matter what competitive goals they wish to achieve, whether it is a novice title or a MACH. 

I enjoy working with animals with my job as a Veterinary Technician, even outside of training them everyday. I also enjoy just playing with my dogs, such as going on long walks and a romp in the park.

I look forward to seeing you AND your dog at Xcel Training Center!
