Welcome!

Welcome to All Star Agility and the home of instructor Lori Michaels! 1316_0110

An avid dog training enthusiast since childhood, Lori has been dedicated to the sport of agility over the last 13 years by competing at national and international events, as well as instructing classes and seminars throughout the US.

Along with her Shelties and border collies, Lori has appeared in the AKC National Agility Championship finals 6 times and USDAA Grand Prix, Performance Speed Jumping, Steeplechase and DAM Team finals 16 times, as well as earning multiple regional championship titles.  Lori and Skye were members of the AKC/USA Agility World Team in 2006 and 2007, helping their team finish 4th in 2007.

Lori and her 5-year-old BC, Solei, have represented the US on the World Agility Open team the last three years.  In 2012, they won the Gold Medal in Biathlon Games and the Bronze in the Agility Biathlon.  At the 2013 WAO, Lori and Solei earned the Gold Medal in the Individual Agility Pentathlon, the Silver in the Agility Biathlon and contributed to USA winning team Gold.  Team Gold was repeated in 2014, along with Bronze in Games.   They were also members of the 2014 IFCS Team and earned medals in Agility and Gamblers.  Lori and Solei are also members of the 2015 WAO Team USA.

Beyond being an accomplished competitor, Lori has gained respect in the agility community for her devotion as both instructor and coach to local and long-distance students.  Her greatest satisfaction comes from helping others meet and exceed their personal goals with their own dogs.
