Barbara McCarty

Born and raised in Skagit County, I started my adventure in dog sports in 2001 with my Brussels Griffon, Bentley. I am now training with my Beauceron, Billie Jean. While I was waiting for her to be mature enough to train in agility, I found a love for Rally.  I love sharing my love of Rally and thank Deneese for the opportunity at The Canine Resource Center.
