My name is Shea Garcia, I have loved and owned dogs all my life. I began training as a teenager with the family dogs, and after coming back to GSDOC to start training my first dog as an adult I fell in love all over again. For the last three years, I have been a teacher’s assistant, a teacher, a Stewart, and am currently the Training director along with the teacher for our Dock Diving class.
I currently have two wonderful rescue dogs! Ash (GSD, Border collie, Australian Cattle Dog mix) who trains/competes in K9 Toss & Fetch Frisbee league, barn hunt, agility, scent work, tricks, and dock diving! And my newest rescue Ziva (Treeing Walker Coonhound, Australian Kelpie, Plott hound, Border collie mix) is working towards getting her CGC title and discovering what sports or events she likes to participate in! My goal as a trainer is to inspire others to find that one event that their dog absolutely loves and then help them continue to build that unbreakable bond.
