Rosanne has been involved in dog agility since 1992, when she started training her flat-coated retriever. At the time, she was 10 years old, but started in Starters/Novice like all the adults, and worked her way up from there. She first made the USDAA Grand Prix Finals in 1997 at the age of 14, and made them again in 1999 (both with her flat-coat Dreamer). She also acheived an ADCH title on her first dog. Since then Rosanne has been training and running border collies. With every dog, her handling has evolved to suit both the dog and the changing sport of agility. Currently at the top of the game, Rosanne's handling is based primarily on body cues and motion, and she puts much emphasis on predicting and guiding the dog's line of travel through the course. She is constantly striving to push the boundaries of her handling system, and her dogs are known for laying it all on the line in every single run.
Rosanne has been on the FCI AWC Team USA with her Border Collie, Strafe, since 2014 (returning in 2015 and 2016, and recently winning a spot on the 2017 team). Additionally, Strafe was selected by AKC to represent the USA at Crufts in 2016, where he won the Large dog competition.
