When & Where
Theresa Richmond, Owner/Operator - Mahogany Ridge Dog Training Center
Theresa's love and understanding of dogs began when she was a young child, surrounded by a variety of purebred and mixed breed dogs. She attended her first obedience class at the age of fourteen with a mixed breed named Mac and began traveling with her aunt, Jean Pagnotta, to many local and Canadian dog shows and trials shortly thereafter. In 1991 that the opportunity to "go to the dogs" full time was presented and the rest, as they say, is history.
Many individuals, organizations, and schools have recognized Theresa for sharing her knowledge and experience. She has helped many to become successful with their goals, whether it be fixing behavior problems, obedience, agility, or teaching their dogs special skills like running beside a bike! Never hesitant to face a challenge, Theresa reaches into her "bag of tricks" and comes up with the solution.Students and trainers alike seek Theresa's help and guidance. With her knowledge and skill she leads the way, facing each challenge with confidence. She tailors her training to the individual team, so that a strong bond is formed and the dog and handler work as one. In this way success is achieved and goals are met, whether that goal is of a happy family pet or a competitive team.
