Sonya Cerron fell in love with agility years ago. She had seen it on TV and decided she wanted her cattle dogs and herself to at least try the new sport. She loves all of the training that went into it as well as watching her dogs catch on to each new lesson. Primarily, Sonya enjoys being around others who share her love for dogs and the sport, and she also loves teaching agility, watching her students succeed at each level and learning to be in touch with their dogs. She finds it soothes her soul just to be out at the field. As an instructor, she makes a point to keep up with all the changes in agility and new techniques and handling. With more than 16 years of agility experience, she has witnessed many changes to the sport. She trials and trains with Pike, her 7-year-old border collie, and Albe, a 3-year-old border collie. Both compete at the master’s level in AKC. Sonya’s history with animals is as a dog groomer in Dayton Ohio, obedience instructor and animal warden in Marathon, Florida, and as an agility instructor since 1999.
