Raine : Has been involved since childhood training her 1st dog to UD equivalent in Scotland. She brought her German Shepherd Dog (Mandy, Mayqueen of Springvale) here to Australia from Scotland in 1969 and continued to train her at club level as she could not be registered as a pure bred dog because she was de-sexed. Back then there was an import ban on GSD's into Aust. they all had to be de-sexed until the ban was lifted in 1973. Rainie trained a new puppy in 1975 Beckleigh Adele UD TD (Janie), and she was the first GSD to gain an Utility Dog title in 15 years. Janie went on to win many awards, UD classes at GSD Nationals, National Best in Trial winner and Royal Melbourne Show Obedience class winner, also numerous local Best In Trials. After children along came Jackie (Sandychelle Sea Witch UD TD AD) a Miniature Poodle, less dog hair inside was the reasoning behind this decision although poodles have great trainability. Jackie was the 1st dog of any breed to gain her AD title in Vic. and also the 1st Min. Poodle to gain a UD title. She won the first 3 Royal Show Agility Competitions before our 1st Open Agility Trial in 1990 which she won in 1990 & 1991, and therefore representing Vic at the Pal National Agility Competition on 2 occasions Jackie was virtually unbeaten in a period of 5 years and was then retired at 10 but came back again for another year and finally retired at nearly 12 years of age. Then along came Jezza her first BC Dual Ch (O) Glentress Jezabel UD ADM JDX ET FD. Rainie has also been involved in the Pal Superdogs  since 1984 and State Manager since 1987, she also purchased and trained Toto a Cairn Terrier X to stardom in the stage show The Wizard of Oz in 1990, 91, 92 and also 2002 with the young Nikki Webster playing Dorothy and Bert Newton back as the Wizard.

Veronica : became involved in dog training early on and was running a dog in the Pal Superdogs at age 7 with her Chihuahua, Bimbo he looked great running under all the jumps whilst our largest GSD ran the course. Khayoz Kennels (Kate & John Valk) was from where Jannah (Ch Khayoz All About Soul CD ADM JDM ET FD) came to her as a baby puppy and there was love at first site from them both. Jannah was also one of our foundation bitches but we only ever kept 2 boys from her. V is now handling one of the boys Ch Bel Adele Recent Rumour AD JDX GD SPD in agility currently (2009)


Angie : Angie has always had dogs but saw the Pal Superdogs and wanted to get a dog to do that with, so in 1996 she purchased Jess (I believe for the princely sum of $25). The rest is history, Jess gained her ADM within 7 months of trialling a record, represented the Victorian Team at the Agility Nationals in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and emergency in 2007, she won Top Agility Dog 2002 and many many classes at trials and also winning both Masters Agility and Jumping Classes at the 2002 Royal Melbourne Show. Jess is now retired and Angie is currently trialing Bel Adele Super Star CDX ADX JDX SD SPD (Jack).
