Harriet Schleifer is owned by two Shetland Sheepdogs, Brandy (Banquise’s Brandy’s Touch) and her puppy, Astra (Herdabout Supernova Dream).
Together, they are involved in many canine sports and Brandy has won numerous titles (CGN, PCD, CD, AGN, AGJ, RAE, AKC Therapy Dog Excellent). Harriet recently became a CKC Rally judge. She teaches Rally, Agility, Freestyle and Nose Games at Blue Ribbon Canine Centre, where she has been training her own dogs for 13 years.
She is the co-founder of Blue Ribbon Therapy dogs, and also teaches the Therapy Dog Preparation classes. Harriet believes that dog sports deepen and enhance our relationships with our dogs and should bring joy to both participants. Her dogs particularly love their work as certified therapy dogs.
Lee Ehler is the chauffeur, butler and personal assistant to his Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Cooper, (Fleur de Lys Cooper Ehler), and Cassidy (Fleur de Lys Kiss Me Cassidy).
Cooper enjoys Rally-O training, playing with his sister Cassidy, romping in the snow, and meeting people and other dogs. Lee and Cooper have been actively involved in therapy work since early 2018 and enjoy giving back to the communities they visit.
