Karen Beattie Massey

Instructor

Karen has been involved in dog agility since 2002, when she started training and competing with Maya, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Maya became the top AKC Agility Cavalier for several years and earned 7 MACH titles, as well as obedience and rally titles. 

Karen’s Pumi Bella was on the European Open Agility team from 2012-2015, the World Agility Open Team 2016, IFCS World Team 2016-2018, and a finalist in AKC, UKI, and USDAA national events. Her Pumi Aria and Cavalier Teddy were medalists at the Americas and Caribbean Championships in 2017. Karen is currently training and competing with Bella’s grandson, Everett. 

In addition to being a Certified Dog Training Professional, Karen’s university studies in psychology and work experience in staff training and creating instructional materials in the software industry made a career in training people and their dogs a natural fit. 

Karen is an American Kennel Club Breeder of Merit and chair of the Health Committee for her national breed club, the Hungarian Pumi Club of America.
