In With the New!

Posted by on Feb 3, 2015 in Uncategorized | 8 comments

Welcome and thank you for visiting my new Web site desireesnelleman.com and Pace Agility. I am very excited about this new endeavor. The website will allow me to be more accessible to students both locally and far away. I hope that over time it will also help me connect with and coach people more consistently and efficiently. The emphasis of this Web site will be on education, training/coaching, specifically to agility handlers and their dogs. With this first phase of my Web presence, I’m sharing some of my favorite moments in agility with you in my gallery, as well as letting you know about upcoming workshops. I’m also providing the opportunity for you to sign up directly with me for coaching, whether it’s online or in person. You can also purchase an exciting new product called 1-TDC that I’ve been using with all my dogs, and I’m thrilled with the results. Over time I plan to expand the site with articles, more blog posts and more options for great learning experiences. In the meantime, I welcome any feedback you have. I want to take a moment to thank some individuals that were instrumental in the rollout of the web site. Karen Beattie Massey (Web designer extraordinaire.) Olivier Morin, Barbara Temple-Thurston, Peter Temple-Thurston, Kerilyn Nobuhara, Kathy Lewis, Nancy Gyes, Peggy Haslach, Mary Lou Hanlon, Brian Trede, Diane Zimberoff and Donna Dykstra, Julie Schrecengost, and most of all T’ai. Had it not been for him I would not be where I am today. Lastly, thanks to all my students who inspire me and continually provide me the ability to grow as a coach and...
