Tanya acquired her first Aussie in 1993 and has raised Australian Shepherds since 2000. Her first love is herding but she has been active in agility, obedience and rally achieving many Advanced and Excellent titles, and on many of her dogs; Versatility and Supreme Versatility titles. Tucker Creek is the first Hall of Fame (HOF) Kennel in Canada and achieved HOF excellent in both Canada and the USA (with the CKC and Australian Shepherd Club of America). It has always been her goal to demonstrate the versatility of her dogs by training dogs in herding, agility, obedience, rally, tracking and conformation. Her Aussies have ranked #1 in Canada for top herding dog for many years consecutively and in the top 10 in the world finals competitions for many years as well.

Tanya has experience with many breeds and travels considerably delivering clinics and seminars in North America and Europe. She is a licensed herding trial judge with ASCA, AKC, CKC and the AHBA.

As a herding teacher her focus is on foundations and more specifically developing the natural talent of a useful dog. She has trained and competed at the world level with three of her Aussies and although competition is important, she emphasises the importance of a real working dog and so her approach is to bring the best out in the herding dog so that it can think independently and perform useful jobs. This method leads to a more dependable working dog and trial dog whose strength is in reading and evaluating its’ stock and working to please the handler.

Her technique is not uncommon but there is a strong emphasis on body language, pressure and looking at things from the dog’s point of view. Much of her training came from a variety of talented instructors over the years including many years with Mr. Bob Vest. She is capable of working with a range of talent and helps you find the best in your dog and to develop your communication skills with your herding partner.
