Valerie Farrell came to CDTS in 1983 to try positive motivation techniques with difficult rescue dog Max, and she never left. Along with her much loved rescues, Valerie has trained and titled her four Chesapeake Bay Retrievers to national rankings in obedience, agility and hunt test and is currently working on her Utility Dog title and Master Hunters with her Chessie partner Vika. Valerie’s goal with every handler and dog is to teach a common language in an upbeat, positive manner that is fun for dog and human.
