Susan is also one a highly successful dog agility competitor. Since winning her first USDAA Grand Prix Final in 1996 with her Border Collie. Stoni, Susan has accumulated a total of 20 National and International Championship wins. Every dog Susan has ever trialed in agility has won two or more National Championship events.
