Dudley Shumate has been loving and training dogs of various breeds—including Cocker Spaniels, Standard Poodles, Border Collies, sport mixes and rescue—for over 25 years. While enjoying competitive success in obedience, tracking, hunt tests and herding, agility is their forte. Dudley and her pups have earned many top placements regionally, nationally, and internationally, including eight National Championships in AKC, UKI and USDAA. Before dogs, Dudley was an avid horse trainer and three-day event competitor. She lives on a farm in North Carolina, baking and hiking when not traveling for teaching and competing.
