Upcoming Seminar and Events

Seminars with Anna Eifert

Dates: Friday, April 5th thru Sunday, April 7th

About Anna: Anna Eifert is a OneMind Dogs trained coach and international competitor, having made the podium at several events on the world stage.  Anna bring a wealth of experience training and competing in agility – starting with a Miniature Bull Terrier, Giovanni.  She has also run Belgian Shepherds, Schipperke, and Border Collies.  Anna has been teaching Agility seminars since 2007, and in 2015 was selected to become an OMD coach.

 Her current dogs are Border Collie Nevian and Miniature Bull Terrier Dú. Anna works as a full-time agility trainer in her own company in Hungary. Agility has been part of her life for 15 years and she also has a sports background in amateur gymnastics.

 As a handler, Anna describes herself as ‘the crazy one’: “I’m the one who runs the Bull Terrier!” She enjoys independent obstacle skills, distance work and unique handling solutions, which she can select herself.

 When Anna is coaching, she is almost always smiling, because she loves dogs and she also loves to teach agility. “I’m very patient and precise. I like to make hard courses easy for my students,” Anna says.

 Anna thinks all good coaches have a few things in common: “They are patient, they are passionate to teach, help and share knowledge. They are flexible. They can explain very well. They can motivate. They love dogs. They are positive. And they have a great sense of humor.”
