James Bahr, CPDT-KA

James Bahr with his dogJim has over 29 years of dog training experience. He started out training his dogs in obedience first with CGC, TDI, then on to competitive obedience in AKC and UKC. After some quick success in the obedience ring, putting advanced obedience titles on his dogs, he was hooked! Obedience led to other dog sports such as Flyball (his team took 1st place in the Flyball region), Earthdog (Wire Fox Terrier titles on Earthdog), Conformation (Breed champion on his Giant Schnauzer), and Agility. Agility quickly became his favorite and in the year 2000 he titled the first MACH wire fox terrier. The same year showing in AKC, his giant schnauzer, wire fox terrier, and miniature schnauzer received the Top Agility Dog Award in their breed. He has since put agility championships on multiple dogs of different breeds in both AKC and USDAA and qualified and attended Nationals since 2000. The biggest accomplishment to date was in 2014 winning the 26” division at AKC Nationals with his talented dog Pressure earning the coveted NAC (National Agility Champion) title. Jim is still actively competing with his dogs Fidget and Arya.

Not only is Jim an accomplished trainer, but he is also personable, pleasant and patient – you and your dog will LOVE working with him!
