Deryl Drysdale, Treasurer & EO Team Assistant
Currently share my home with 5 Mudis ranging in age from 2 to 13. I have competed in obedience, flyball, and agility with my dogs as well as trained in herding. I started my agility training at McCann Professional Dog Trainers 17 years ago and still continue to teach family obedience at McCanns each week.
I very much enjoy my career as a Certified Financial Planner and have done so for the past 28 years however most of my spare time is spent with my dogs. Usually 2 come to my office each day to greet clients!!
My first Mudi, Flyte was the first Mudi in Canada to obtain an ATCH in Agility. He was also the first to go to AAC Nationals and qualified in the finals in Steeplechase many times. Lutri and I had the privilege to compete at the AWC 4 years ago in the Czech Republic giving me the pleasure of now having both served on the Management Team for the CKC ATC and being a competitor. Lutri and I placed 3rd in the AAC Nationals in the past.
As I have attended the last 10/12 years Canada has been competing at the FCI AWC It has been amazing watching the sport of agility evolve over the past decade as courses get more challenging and handler/dog teams become more skilled. I'm looking forward to seeing what the future will bring.
In 2015 I travelled with the Canadian EO Agility Team to Germany and helped coach the Small/Medium dog Teams. It was an honour to be amongst such a group of dedicated and talented handler/dog teams and I am very grateful for the experience.
I am currently the Treasurer of the CKC ATC and last year enjoyed the experience of being on the Selection Committee for both EO and FCI AWC. I will continue this in 2016.
