Charlotte Dog Training Club Board of Directors
Liz has been a member of CDTC for 10 years serving as President, Secretary, Instructor as well as being a member of many committees. Born and raised in the Western New York area she moved to Charlotte with her family about 40 years ago. Like many involved in dog sports, she started training dogs in 4-H and was also involved in showing Arabian horses for many years. Liz is now retired after spending 30+ years in the IT profession. She lives in Fort Mill with her husband and two dogs Rocco and Jacques. She competes with Jacques in Obedience and Agility, Rocco who is almost 12 and now retired.
Carol grew up in the mountains of Southwest Virginia before moving to Charlotte. Growing up she begin her love of poodles the first were toy poodles. Followed by two miniature poodle rescues which lead her to CDTC for training as well as lots of friends whose friendships have lasted over the years. While the intention was to take a puppy class she never left and has trained several other dogs over the years. Currently training Chinese Cresteds. Over the years her dogs have titled in Obedience, Rally, Fieldwork, Fast Cat, Agility and Scentwork.
I have been an active dog owner/lover, advocate, and contributing member to several organizations impacting the lives of dogs in a meaningful way. I started with Boston Terriers and AKC Rally in 2005 and became hooked on canine sports, training, and being an active dog community member.
I'm grateful to have been a volunteer with the Asheville Humane Society and Greater Charlotte SPCA where I fostered and trained many dogs to go to their forever homes.
I live in Indian Trail with my husband and tow Belgian Laekenois (Charlotte and Devereux). Charlotte has titles in agility scentowrk, dock diving, barn hunt and tricks. Devereux trials in FastCAT and Rally.
I especially enjoy all the volunteer opportunities at CDTC. I've been assistant to Bit Jordan with her Obedience classes and volunteered with various trial venues.
Lisa is originally from Wisconsin and has been competing in AKC obedience trials since she was 12 years old. She started with her family’s Doberman and continued with Dobermans until just recently when she adopted a Belgian Malinois. Her passion is taking rescues with behavioral issues, rehabbing them and then competing. She has been a member of CDTC for over 20 years and has been an instructor, assistant instructor and has also served on the Board as Secretary and Director. She enjoys competing in AKC obedience and has achieved a UD, and also enjoys Rally, but her real love is Schutzhund where she and Gusto have titled at the highest level and competed at National and Regional events. They have also now begun training in Agility and look forward to the fun journey ahead.
