Seeing Spots
If you’re involved in agility competition in the southwest, you’ve probably seen Jane Winkler of Albuquerque, New Mexico, running her Dalmatians. Jane is a wiry woman who always seems to be on course with a variety of eye-catching “Spotty Bodies,” as she likes to call them. She has had astounding success with a breed some have described as hard to train. Over the past 12 years, Jane has rescued, rehabilitated, and re-homed over 12 Dalmatians. She has trained and handled many of them to over 230 agility and obedience titles in AKC, ASCA, NADAC, UKC, and USDAA. Impressively, Jane accomplished all this while working full-time as a dental hygienist.
