Anna has trained and competed in agility with her dogs for 15 years. At her agility training school in Hungary and in seminars all over the world Anna’s constant smile, sense of humour, positivity and infectious personality shine through as she trains and coaches agility dogs and their handlers to connect and run together as one. Anna is very passionate and knowledgeable about agility and takes the time to explain and provide clear precise instructions and feedback in a patient supportive manner and always looks for unique training and handling solutions for each individual and handler.
As a handler, Anna describes herself as ‘the crazy one’: “I’m the one who runs the Bull Terrier and Border Collies!” Anna trains for independent obstacle skills, distance work and applies unique handling solutions, which she can select herself.
Anna started agility in 1999 with her Miniature Bull Terrier Giovanni. Before she got her superstar Nevian, she was running different "borrowed" dogs, a very small Schipperke and many huge Belgian Shepherds.
Anna attended her first AWC with Flort, a lovely Groenendael female in 2005. She got her first Border Collie Nevian, in 2004. Nevian won the Silver Medal at her first World Championship in 2006. She was in the Hungarian National Team each year until 2014 and won Crufts (both British Open and International), IFCS World Champion in Biathlon, the Hungarian National Championship, IABC, silver medal at the Border Collie Classic and many more events that the team competed at together. ,
But Anna does not count the results, because it's all about the perfect run no matter what placement it brings. She is not a judge, she prefers to run her dogs and teach and coach others to handle their dogs in the best way appropriate for their dog. Anna has given a lot to the community when she was the President of the Hungarian Agility Committee from 2008 to 2015 and organized among others the Border Collie Classic and the European Open in Hungary. Anna has been a full-time agility trainer since 2008, and she is one of the first OneMind Dogs coaches since 2014.
Anna says Du, her very cute and very smart, 7 years old Miniature Bull Terrier was her best trainer ever. Du forced Anna to learn the alpha and omega of the OneMind Dogs methodology, even the mental training part: she cannot be thankful enough for that, as a result Anna can help all different kinds of teams in agility. "Du made me not only a way better coach but a perfect handler for Nebraska" her young Border Collie.
