Who We Are
Welcome to Valley Dog Sport
Valley Dog Sports celebrates 10 years of providing trials and training to the Portland Metro and Willamette Valley area. Our first trial was December 2013. We are fortunate to have the same judges for our trial in December 2023 that we had in 2013!
Nancy started in barn hunt over six years ago with Valley Dog Sports when Karla Sanders, the original owner of VDS, was teaching and encouraged Nancy to bring her reactive dog to class. Grace loved finding the rats and for once her reactivity did not get in the way of her having fun. Nancy was hooked on barn hunt after that class! Grace competed for several years before retiring and becoming the BH 101 class demo dog. Since Nancy started out in the sport with a reactive dog, she specializes in helping owners with reactive dogs. Barn Hunt is a sport where reactive dogs can shine, and she understands the relief many handlers have in finally finding a sport their dog can succeed in. Nancy has a new barn hunt dog, Dio, who she is looking forward to training.
