Jan Emanuel

Lead Instructor

Jan is a molecular biologist by training and works in pharmaceutical drug development. She started agility training with her Australian Shepherd, Addie, as a way to channel Addie’s endless energy and very active mind. Jan and Addie competed and titled in ASCA, NADAC, and AKC. Addie taught Jan the need for a strong foundation and the importance of maintaining consistent criteria, lessons she incorporates in instruction of the HOA Foundation Skills class.

Currently Jan is competing with her young Aussie, Pi. Pi, like Addie, is very exuberant and Jan has learned many impulse control games to play with her boy.

Jan is very good with criteria and we are lucky to have her as an instructor. She continues to build her training bag with agility camps, seminars and workshops with instructors like: Mary Ellen Barry, Jen Pinder and Rachel Sanders.
