Betty Wathne

I live in rural Western Maryland with Lipizzan horses, Irish water spaniels, Pyrenean Shepherds, a Kooikerhondje, various sheep, fowl, and cats, and a big green parrot.

I have been training dogs for 45+ years, and have been studying with Sylvia Bishop for more than two decades.

Private lessons, In-home training and conditioning, coaching competition teams, presenting seminars, and extended stay-and-train packages for you and your dog at my historic farm are part of my business "Ready Steady Training"

In my "Madcap Little Studio" I produce custom crate tags and memorials for performance dogs and beloved pets of all species.
