Since 1995 Spiritdance Tracking has been offering lessons and seminars across Canada. Donna is passionate about sharing and helping new and experienced trackers on their journey! In 2014 Donna became the first tracking trainer in Canada to take tracking online, bringing people together from across Canada to learn, share and grow together.
Donna added Professional Performance Coaching and Life Coaching after graduating from Erickson College's world renowned Art & Science of Coaching program (International Coach Federation certified!). Coaching puts the focus on the client's needs and adds value to instruction. There is no cookie-cutter, recorded training in the Spiritdance Method. It is always fresh, live and about you.
Donna is one of the few people in Canada to have THREE Tracking Champions! She has trained multiple breeds of her own including German Shepherds, Border Collies and Rough Collies in tracking, herding, obedience and conformation. In tracking, Donna's dogs have earned 9 TDs, 6 TDXs, 5 UTDs and 3 UTDXs since 1989. Donna is also a CKC Tracking Judge (all levels) who has judged across Canada! Donna works with all breeds, mixed breeds and working lines equally and appreciates them all.
