Since 2007, HomeGrown DogSports has evolved, and so has the culture and camaraderie that surround it. Whether through classes or competitions, the HomeGrown "family" has become a close-knit group of friends with dogs who are supportive of one another. It has been a blessing and an honor to facilitate these relationships.
HomeGrown DogSports is located at Foxhound Heights, a sprawling horse farm with beautiful, picturesque views in northern Baltimore County. There is a climate-controlled indoor training building for agility and obedience, as well as a securely fenced 100' x 100' ring for year-round training.
Competing is not a requirement to be part of HomeGrown DogSports. You and your dog will learn the sport of agility safely and within the rules, but there is never any pressure to compete. No matter what your personal goals are, you have a place at HomeGrown. If you have the desire to compete, we can guide you. All classes are customized to each dog and handler's individual needs while keeping the skills challenging and FUN!
HomeGrown currently hosts one sanctioned USDAA (United States Dog Agility Association) trial per year—usually around Mother’s Day weekend. With the electrifying atmosphere, gorgeous view, and delicious home-cooked food, this trial is always a great time!
I founded HomeGrown DogSports in 2007. I decided it was finally time to make a living doing my favorite thing—working with dogs and their owners. It is astounding how many pet owners underestimate what their dogs can do. I enjoy erasing those boundaries and seeing smiles of amazement emerge on owners' faces.
I started agility training with Sally in 2009 with my Pembroke Welsh Corgi Bernard. I live in Parkton with my husband of 26 years, along with our three dogs, four parrots, and five koi. I have worked as a veterinary technician for over 20 years. I love agility, and compete in the disc dog league as well.
