BS in Exercise Science and Sport Management
Pamela Horner-Pfau began her agility journey under the instruction of NADAC judge and trainer, Lark Pollari, in January of 2012. Her first teammate, who she still competes with in NADAC trials today, is a Border Collie named Manda. The most impact filled experience Pamela was able to share with Lark, was watching Manda grow from a very nervous and shy rescue dog to the confident, happy, and sometimes even FAST elite level agility partner she is now.
Pam and Manda have had the opportunity to participate in numerous agility seminars and workshops over the years. Other teammates that Pam has had include a spaniel rescue mix named Padme, the beloved Puffin Hound mix Niners, and the newest family addition Shasta.
Pam has a strong coaching background with experience at the collegiate level and is excited to use these skills and continue her education in the world of dog sports.
Meet the Dogs!
Manda is a rescue from Help for Homeless Pets. We started agility when Manda was 4 years old when I realized she truly needed a JOB. She has become much more confident over the years and we have created a very special bond. Manda earned her Championship Agility title in NADAC (NATCH) in January of 2017.
Padme is also a rescue. She belongs to my nephew, Caleb. She started her agility career with my niece, Morgan, as her handler. I took over shortly after, but Padme has been out of training for a while. She is just waiting for her next partner to start agility again!
Niners is pretty well know in the world of dog sports. She was Lark Pollari’s last rescue and I was honored to have her come live with me in 2014 after the beloved Lark lost her battle with cancer. Niners biggest fan is still Wayne Pollari amongst many others. We still dabble in agility for fun but Niners true love is dock diving. Niners competed in the 2016 National Championships in Oralando Florida and placed #7 in the nation in the Master Lap division. Her personal best jump is 17 feet 3 inches.
Shasta is a rescue from Rez Dog Rescue of Montana. She was born in May of 2015. She loves paddle boarding, Barn Hunt, NADAC agility, and lure coursing. She earned a bundle of titles in 2017 including Dock Novice (dock diving), Canine Good Citizen, Tricks titles for Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced tricks.
