Seminar Information

Julie Norman Jenkins Flyball Seminar

About Julie:

Julie Norman Jenkins is a multi-sport dog trainer with a passion for teaching people and dogs. As a junior handler, Julie trained and showed her own dogs in obedience, conformation, herding, agility, flyball, musical freestyle, and canine disc. Alongside her mother, Deb Norman, Julie co-founded Y2K9s Dog Sports Club in suburban Philadelphia. Ten years later, Julie relocated to North Carolina and served eight years as manager of the dog training program at Paws4ever, in Mebane, NC. Julie now operates Quicksilver Canine, in Julian, NC, teaching lessons, classes and seminars. Julie’s flyball team, Fur Fun, has enjoyed considerable success: 25 time Regional Champions (regions 13, 15 & 9), 2015 NAFA overall Multibreed Champions and 2014 CanAm Multibreed Grand Champions.

Although she considers flyball her first dog sport love, Julie’s training methods and philosophies apply to any sport. Julie’s instruction style is flexible and fun, focusing on the strengths and challenges of individuals rather than using cookie-cutter solutions. Her foundation and puppy training emphasize developing a loving relationship through play and cooperative learning. These foundation skills benefit performance dogs of many disciplines and make sport-specific training easy and fun. Julie strives to bring out the very best in each dog and handler team, regardless of breed, speed, or level of training
