Silke loves to work on all aspects of this great dog sport while making sure that both ends of the leash have fun in a safe environment!  She has a soft spot for shelter dogs and introduced K9NW to several local shelters, two of which have now included it in their regular canine enrichment program.

Silke is also a certified professional dog trainer and behavior consultant and has been running HeRo Canine Consulting LLC, a successful dog training and behavior consulting business since 2006.

She currently competes with her 9-year-old Pit Bull Snap in NACSW™ nose work competitions and is an avid K9NW lover.
