Instructor Bio: Karin Apfel
Karin has been training and competing with dogs for over 25 years in Rally-O, flyball and agility. Her passion for the past few years has been detection work, particularly teaching sporting detection for competition. After discovering the value of scent work to build confidence in nervous or reactive dogs and the true enjoyment all dogs get from using their primary sense to play games, she worked with several law enforcement and private detection professionals and, in 2012, started the Sporting Detection Dogs Association in partnership with several other trainers. She is currently the president of the SDDA and teaches weekly classes in detection in Newmarket.
