Heather lives with her family and 3 dogs, Lupa (Malinois), Zulu (Malinois x Chihuahua) and Falkor (Miniature American Shepherd).

Over the years Heather has competed in obedience and agility, however when Lupa hurt his shoulder in agility they had to stop training. Lupa being a young dog still had a lot to offer and is very willing to work. This is when Heather found hoopers and discovered it was the perfect low impact sport for them. Heather’s interest for hoopers grew into a passion to teach and offer it to other owners, becoming an accredited Canine Hoopers UK instructor in November 2018.

Team Heather and Lupa have had a fantastic year competing at UK Hoopers shows and we can proudly say they are the winners of the 2021 Novice Championship.
