Lynn Leach, Dog Trainer, Teaches Australian Cattle Dog
Lynn Leach's expertise and enthusiasm has given her the opportunity to travel all over to teach people to train their dogs how to herd by giving clinics, lessons and judging trials.
"I will keep going to any herding clinics that Lynn Leach is the dog trainer at. Lynn remembered who I was when I walked into the arena. Actually she remembered my dog the most. That impressed me the most. I figured with all the people she works with daily etc. Either I stood out in the crowd, or she really enjoys what she does as a Judge/Clinician/Dog Trainer. That impressed me a lot." -Barb Freer
Lynn's travels have taken her to several herding facilities worldwide:
- Alberta (Grande Prairie and Calgary) Ontario (Thunder Bay, Hamilton, Goderich, London and Utopia)

A testimonial from an attenee of an Australian Herding Clinic:

Lynn has also been invited to speak at several judging seminars throughout Canada. One of her favorite seminars was designed to help organize all breed herding demonstrations at the American Kennel Club Herding Judge's Institute in Raleigh, North Carolina. "It was great to provide conformation judges with an opportunity to see the dogs work. Feedback was so excellent; we are repeating a similar format here in Canada in February 2007" (Lynn Leach, herding dog trainer).
