I am Darryl Warren and as a life long dog owner, I have been involved with training and showing dogs in competitions since 1985. I started competing in the breed ring finishing several champions. Shortly after entering the breed ring, I began training dogs for and competing in obedience. I have finished titles on my own dogs and several clients’ dogs in both the USA and Canada in breed and obedience. I taught obedience classes for my local club beginning in 1987 also worked as an assistant for a private trainer for several years in Limerick, Pennsylvania. In 1991, as a diversion to the stress of utility training, I started my 5-year-old champion and obedience titled cocker spaniel in agility. I was immediately hooked on this fast pace new sport. I have handled cockers spaniels, golden retrievers, Australian Shepherds and a lab in USDAA, NADAC, AKC and DOCNA, ASCA and CPE. I began teaching agility early in the 90's and was the training director of Keystone Agility Club until moving to Wind Gap, Pa. in 1995 I started teaching classes in Wind Gap, Pa and started 3D Dog Training. Those classes continued until I moved to Perkiomenville in 2015. I have also taught at Northampton Community College and at K9 Jym in Colmar Pa. I am currently an ASCA Supervising judge and also judge in AKC, CPE, UKI and TDAA. I am currently accepting assignments in all five venues through 2023!
