John Fisher is the owner of Dog Sports America.  He is a master trainer and a Barn Hunt Association Judge, along with a North American Flyball Association Judge, and competes and teaches all over the United States and even in Canada!

John has been instrumental in the advanced training of Barn Hunt dogs competing at the national level, and dogs he trained took Gold and Silver medals at the most recent BHA National (Sept. 2015).  His dog Ginger, a mixed breed, was last year’s National Games Champion, has her RATCHX8, and is the highest ranked mixed breed dog in North America in barn hunt.

Lucy (an Australian Shepherd) is the second highest ranked Aussie with an RATCHX4.  Scout, also an Aussie, was the youngest dog ever to attain his Master title – at under 10 months old!  He is currently working on his RATCH.  Cody (another Australian Shepherd) is currently working on his RATCHX.

In addition to barn hunt, John’s dogs are also titled in nose work, flyball, and dock diving, and are in training for agility.
