Julie Flanery, CPDT-KA has been working professionally with dogs and their handlers since 1993. She focuses on the needs of the dog and helping people form a strong working relationship, through clear communication, and positive reinforcement. She has placed Obedience, Freestyle, Rally-Obedience, Rally-FrEe and Agility titles on her dogs so knows both the world of obedience and Musical Freestyle very well.


She began competing in Musical Freestyle in 1999 and was the first to both title and earn a Heelwork to Music Championship on the West Coast.  She has since placed many freestyle titles on her dogs, earning both High Technical Merit and High Artistic Merit in both Musical Freestyle and Heelwork to Music.

In 2012, Julie developed the sport of Rally-FrEe to help freestylers increase the quality and precision of their performances.
