starVolunteer Spotlight

Brenda has been with us longer than any other volunteer.  Since July 2009, she has faithfully come every Thursday to help the youth learn to train their dogs.  She coaches them one on one and also does a great job showing them how to teach the agility obstacles.  When she isn't being the KNK9 star volunteer, Brenda teaches art at an elementary school and competes with her dogs in dog agility.  She shares her home with two Border Collies and four cats.  Thank you, Brenda!
