Instructor: Joan Tennille

Mrs. Tennille, Founder and Past President of the Federation offers training classes in Canine Freestyle. Classes prepare the team for competition at all levels. Class work Includes developing each team to move; perform before others; and to prepare your presentations. She is the originator of the discipline of Canine Freestyle which she demonstrated by creating the original four in 1993 for the Cycle National Obedience Competitions. Through her seminars and conceptual training methods she has set the standards for the sport. Before dedicating her skills to moving the sport forward, Ms. Tennille was actively competing in other disciplines in the Sport of Dogs.

Mrs. Tennille offers CanineFreestyle Classes at all levels. Contact Mrs. Tennille for more information at
