Brags & Trial Results - 2013

Denise Fenzi opened the Fenzi Dog Sports On-Line Academy! The academy allows students from throughout the world to study the sports of Obedience, Rally, Nosework, IPO, Tracking, Dog Behavior and an impressive list of electives, all from their own home using dog friendly training techniques! Instructors are selected from around the world for their accomplishments, compassionate training style and commitment to education. To learn more about the academy, please visit our website at:
Between the Fenzi academy, Denise's personal seminar schedule, writing, and family obligations, breeding dogs is on hold indefinitely and this website is no longer being updated, though Sprite pups continue to do extremely well in a range of dog sports. Thanks to all who have supported me throughout the years!
