I've been into dog sports since 2002. With my first dog I took up a number of activities: agility, obedience and hunt tests.

It was too much for one dog, and in 2004 I got the second one.

By that moment I’d figured out that the main discipline for me was dog dancing. It was in 2004, too, that I completed the RCF teaching programmes for Dog Trainers and dog dancing judges.

In 2010 I entered the national Russian freestyle dog dancing team. During the same year I started working at the competitions as a trainee judge. In 2013 I got certified by RCF as dog dancing judge.

Team titles earned with labrador Tutta:

  • 3rd place at the WC 2010,
  • 1st place at the European Championship 2011,
  • 2nd place at the European Championship 2012.
  • 2nd place at the World Championship 2012.

Titles earned with Australian sheepdog Shmu:

  • 2nd place at the European Championship 2013 (team title)
  • 2nd place at the European Championship 2013 (individual title)
  • 1st place at the European Championship 2014 (team title)

I love Canine Freestyle for the liberty that it gives to dance with dogs of any breed making their qualities stand out and expressing them in the performance.

I'm looking forward to meeting many wonderful teams and watching great dances during the Moscow WC!
