Hey everyone! It's been a bit but I'm back- So I'm introducing my new self to you all!
I'm no longer Jill Ellis.. I am now Jill Rakin! I got married Sept 18, 2010 and things have been a bit nuts since them. I'm the agility trial chair for a new indoor trial Jan 22-23, 2011 and have been busting my hump getting that ready.. but soon after life will be much more calm and I should be able to come and play a bit more with the forum again!
For those that don't know me yet I don't have pit's but I am a pit bull advocate, and a strong believer in fighting BSL. I personally have 3 shelties and an aussie, but have worked with many breeds in various settings. (my dogs names are in my signature below)
I'm currently a member of the Central NY Shetland Sheepdog Club and DOTCORNY (dog obedience training club of rochester ny) with many members here. I have taught for DOTCORNY (CGC/TDI, rally, STAR puppy, puppy, beginner & Advanced beginner obedience), was their Obedience Training Director for about a year and a half, and currently teach out at Boomtowne Canine Center now (Conformation, Versatility and Rally).
I do have a few photo's I'll post in the gallery section of the wedding. Missed you guys and can't wait to meet the new members since I've been MIA.
