Lori is passionate about strengthening the bond between owners and their pets. She is thrilled that she can devote herself to teaching Nose Work and Parkour classes, both in person and virtually. She is also dedicated to expanding both of these sports in Western New York which is why she is so involved with the National Association of Canine Scent Work and International Dog Parkour Association. She hopes Dog Parkour becomes as popular as Nose Work has in this community!
DJ Rehberg has had a life long passion for dogs, especially Siberian Huskies. In early 2016, while seeking an activity to improve and strengthen the bond between him and his Siberian Husky, Sylvie, he discovered the sport of nose work. He immediately recognized this is the sport that dogs were literally born to play. Since that first class, he has worked to improve his skills, knowledge and education in the sport of nose work. Over the years, DJ Rehberg has attended several classes, seminars, and online courses. He has also attended nose work camps where he was able to learn from several of the premiere nose work instructors from across the country. DJ has co-presented nose work workshops, volunteers at trials and is a certified USCSS Judge.
