Kim joined the Peoria Obedience Training Club in 2015 after adopting an American Staffordshire/Sharpei mix from the Stray Animal Midway Shelter in Hanna City, naming him Grif, and realizing that she and her dog needed some obedience training. Within a year Kim rescued another dog, a Brittany/Terrier mix, from the ARK in Lacon and named her Ruby. Running Ruby Rose now participates in agility after attending Obedience 1 and 2 classes, plus the Beginner Agility and Advanced Agility classes. Kim has helped with maintenance in the building and decided to use her accounting skills as the Treasurer and was elected to the Board in January 2019. Kim is retired and likes to fish, golf, and whatever else she wants to do with her time when not busy with her two beloved dogs who are the true owners of the household. Kim also volunteers for the Central Illinois Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired where she sees guide dogs working to help their blind owners. This is not Kim’s first experience with the Peoria Obedience Training Club. Years ago in 2002, Kim brought her dog, Rose, a lab mix, so that they could get trained. It was that positive experience that brought Kim back with her current two dogs.
