Professor Tracy Sklenar
Tracy Sklenar has been training dogs and competing in dog agility for more than 15 years and is one of just a handful of handlers/coaches in the world who has appeared in international Finals as a coach for her country and as a handler with her own dog, at different world championship events in the same year! She is on the faculty of Agility University (www.agility-u.com). Tracy also travels throughout North America to teach seminars and compete.

2015 has started with a bang, with Tracy and Export winning a Silver medal (Team) and Bronze medal (Individual Agility) for the USA at the IFCS World Agility Championships. 2014 was a busy year, featuring wins in 5 different Regional Finals (in 2 different heights), a 4th place finish in the Steeplechase Finals at USDAA's Cynosport World Games as well as running in both the Team Finals and the Master Challenge Finals, selection to a spot on Team USA at European Open, winning a spot on Team USA for IFCS and earning a Finalist spot at the AKC National Championships.

Tracy has competed successfully in agility with a variety of dogs of all shapes, sizes and temperaments. Currently, she shares her life with 6 dogs: a Rat Terrier (retired 13 year old Rebound), 3 BC mixes (9 year old Export, 6 year old Matrix and 2 year old Voodoo), and a two Papillons (3 year old Crusher and puppy Macho Nacho). In the ring, their runs are noted for focus, accuracy, consistency and speed!

Tracy also has extensive coaching experience, ranging from local competitors to international teams. In 2012 and 2011, she was the Coach/Manager of Team USA at the World Agility Open in Belgium and the United Kingdom , and in both years was proud to see the US team bring home more medals than any other country both times! She served as the Manager/Coach for Team Canada at the IFCS World Agility Championships in 2008, 2010 and in 2012. These teams were very successful, ranking high in the Individual medal count and bringing home medals in the Team event.

Outside of international competitions, Tracy's local and national level students have achieved great success with a variety of breeds, including championship titles, national finals appearances, top five finishes in their breed, Invitational appearances, and more! Tracy uses positive reinforcement, games and shaping to build brilliant behaviors in the dogs while teaching the handlers to be consistent and positive in their handling and dog training. She emphasizes teamwork, connection, consistency, mental focus, play and fun for both the handler and the dog. She also has extensive experience teaching and coaching, instructing local classes, teaching clinics & seminars throughout North America.
