Savannah Bloomfield, Trainer & Training Facility Manager

Savannah grew up on Vancouver Island, BC, and has always been involved in dogs. Her love of dogs started with learning agility with her golden retriever, Bella, and her passion for working with dogs and competing in dog sports grew with her current German Shorthaired Pointer, Piper, who is active in many dog sports and is working toward becoming a active cadaver dog. As a K9 and handler team for search and rescue they love to dedicate their time to helping others and growing as a team. Savannah’s prior experience with dogs includes caregiver at a doggy daycare, training class assistant, volunteering at dog events, dog sitting, structured dog walking and attending many training classes. Savannah continues to grow her knowledge by attending seminars and taking courses regularly.
