Christine Vinciguerra


Christine was born and raised in Charleston. Throughout school, she worked as a veterinary assistant at a veterinary ophthalmology clinic. She graduated from the College of Charleston in 2017 with a BA in Psychology and went on to work as a program coordinator for a non-profit that holds social programs for people suffering from dementia. 

 

Christine has been doing agility for 8 years. Her first dog, a Boykin Spaniel named Rusty taught her a lot about building drive and motivation for agility. He went on to become a very confident agility dog and finished his USDAA Performance Dog Championship. At the 2017 USDAA Southeastern Regionals, he placed 4th in the Performance Grand Prix Finals. Before retiring from his agility career, Rusty competed in the 2017 USDAA Cynosports World Games, advancing to the Semi-Finals round in Perf. Grand Prix and Perf. Speed Jumping. Her second agility dog, another Boykin Spaniel named Sonny, proved to be quite a dog training challenge! Through tireless focus and impulse control training, Sonny has become a successful agility dog. He completed his USDAA Agility Dog title and was competing at the advanced and masters level in USDAA agility before taking some time off for a sports injury. Christine and Sonny also love training and competing in dock diving. Christine is currently focusing her energy on her young Border Collie puppy, Keeper!

 

Christine has been assisting Becca with SCoot classes for several years. In 2017, she started offering private lessons and teaching focus and relationship building classes. She has recently started teaching foundation classes for agility. She has been following the One Mind Dogs handling system for the past 2-3 years and has trained under OMD Coaches Karen Holik, Soshana Dos, Kayl McCann, and Timo and Tuulia Liuhto. While she loves honing her handling skills, she especially loves helping teams who struggle with focus and motivation issues. She has taken many online training classes from Fenzi Dog Sports Academy on subjects such as impulse control, focus, tricks training, and relationship building.
