Specialty Class Instructor

Josette is a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI) with The National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW). She has been training and competing in the sport since 2009 with two of her dogs. Both have titled in the Nose Work 1 and Nose Work 2 Levels, and are currently training for the Nose Work Level 3 competition. She continues to train with the founders of The NACSW to increase her Nose Work knowledge. What she enjoys most about Nose Work is that it's always fun for her and her dogs, and they learn so much. It is great to see the dogs using their brain to solve scenting. She and her dogs love Nose Work and they can be found all over the continental United States practicing.

Josette has 3 Entlebucher mountain dogs, the smallest of the Swiss Mountain Dogs. She has owned several breeds and rescues. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (ADPT), South Bay Trainers (SBT), and is an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.






Specialty Class Instructor

Rachel began her professional life as a dancer and K-12 educator, and has been teaching workshops for children and adults since 1995. She made the leap to dog training in 2006, and found a natural fit for her experience in dance, education, and psychology. Helping students to develop an awareness of themselves and their canine companions through movement and clear communication has been a rewarding part of her work, and Rachel credits the success of her own dogs in Agility, Rally, Canine Good Citizen, and Pet Assisted Therapy to the strong sense of teamwork she has developed with them through ongoing training. She loves training and competing with her dogs Kubby (All-American Mutt) and Chloe (Border Collie), and recently welcomed a new puppy to the Evers team, Zimmer!
