Linda Hulbert and Catcher
When I got Catcher at 11 weeks of age in 2007, I knew I had a special boy. I have always been fascinated by dream catchers so I named him Dezwin’s Dream Catcher. He has caught a lot of my dreams. He is a very versatile cocker spaniel with titles in five different agility venues, both AKC and UKC obedience and rally, AKC tracking, flyball and novice freestyle.
We live outside of Baltimore, Maryland, with two other cockers, a 14-year old that is semi-retired and an 18-month old that is starting her performance career. I have been training and showing cocker spaniels in various performance events since the early 80’s. Catcher and I have been training freestyle at Oriole Dog Training Club in Baltimore with Linda Grskovich.
In my “spare” time, I work full time in the IT department of a business just outside of Baltimore.
