Deb Evans has been a trainer with TCKC since 1987. Most of that time she was involved in the obedience training program, and in recent years has been primarily an agility instructor. She has supported TCKC as a long-time board member, organized events and participated in many club functions. Debâ€™s entrance into dog sports was with Cocker Spaniels, Sherman and later Mocha. Both dogs earned AKC and UKC obedience titles. Deb then trained her Papillon, Splash, earning titles in AKC obedience, rally and agility, including AKCâ€™s MACH. Splash also competed and titled in UKC obedience and agility, and TDAA agility (Teacup Dogs), including TDAAâ€™s TACH. Debâ€™s second Papillon, Bizzie, is currently running in AKC agility and recently earned the MACH2 title. Deb has been working with dogs for over half her lifetime and bases training on the aspect of making it fun and rewarding for the dog. Her work ethic revolves around continual practice, being creative, trying new methods, and learning from others via seminars and workshops. Deb enjoys teaching at TCKC and strives to share helpful knowledge, techniques and ideas with TCKC students.
