AgilityClick, in collaboration with Ruredy for Agility, are delighted to be able to bring Susan to Queensland as part of her inaugural visit to Australia.
I’m Susan Koldenhof, and I am from the Netherlands. I started with agility around 9 years ago with my first own dog Ace, a brown border collie. And never stopped loving the agility sport ever since. 2 years later I got my crazy monkey Time, my home bred girl from our kennel infinity light. And with – and thanks to her I traveled a lot around the world and discovered a whole new level of agility with winning international cups, qualifying for the Dutch team for EO and AWC years in a row, running EO finals every year, and ending up in top 10 of AWC Large. I love my dogs over everything in this world.
Right now I still run Time – my experienced girl of almost 9 years old, and also my younger girl Sign – who is really something else. In her short career, she took high rankings and prices at competitions like EO, WAO and Slovenian Open – also setting fastest times. I also own a pup imported out of the UK- Intense, who will hopefully be another future star. But for now we’re still working on foundations.
I love to travel, to share my knowledge and vision on agility and dog training with fun and enthusiastic teams all over the world. Being super picky and critical in a motivating way, as I believe that’s needed to become the best team you can be with your dog. My training is built on successes so the dog gets (or keeps his) self-confident and faster.
