About Me

Karen VanHoy

My Husband and I re located to Beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in California a few years ago after raising a family and living in Santa Barbara for 28 years. We live on 5 acres with our dogs where I am very fortunate to have 2 lush grass fields set up with all new agility equipment right out my back door where I train my dogs and hold Obedience and Agility Classes through out the week.

I also Teach Group Agility Classes in Santa Barbara on Sunday's at Mackenzie Park where I was the past instructor, Captain and Agility Director for the Santa Barbara Flyers since 2004.

I am active and compete with my dogs in Agility, Obedience / Rally and Conformation. I breed and raise Border Collies here at “Zuki” Kennels and will have a litter every year or so. I try to only breed the best puppies possisable starting with excellent health clearances from the parents and a supper temperament along with brains and beauty.

I am a member of several local dog clubs where I have held many different board positions. I have helped run and organize many local events through out the years for Flyball Tournaments, Agility Trials, Senior programming and many different Community events like Parades and Openings. It is always FUN to get dogs involved and share them with others in our Community.

I LOVE all dogs, big and little, pure breed or mixes. I like to help others find their way to having fun with their dog by teaching owners and their dog new and fun experiences that they can share together.
