Hi, my name is Kinze Williams, I am 17 years old and I have been a part of TVKC’s community ever since I was 10 years old!! I’ve always had dogs growing up but the dog that’s helped me get to where I am now is BellaPupPup. Bella is an Australian Shepherd PitBull Mix. Both Bella and I started our training together at the Alaska K9 Center run by Beth Frank when I was about 9 years old. Beth helped us grow both as a team and our confidences in each other.
Beth encouraged me to join TVKC and introduced the world of AKC competitions to me. After joining TVKC at my first agility trial. I met Terri Morefield, who welcomed me into the community and explained the Junior recognition program and encouraged me to apply for the junior scholarships. My love for Agility after that had opened up the world of many more dog competitions and had expanded my training with my dogs. TVKC is where you met Michaela Krohn as she has helped achieve my dream of international competition by co owning Voo and encouraged applying for JOAWC (Junior Open Agility World Championship) and making the team in 2020!!
TVKC has opened up so many connections and Friends to me that I can not thank them enough!! The club as grown so much from when I first started and I can’t wait for it to grow even more!!
