My name is Katie Carignan and I'm 18 years old. I have been accepted to Berry College in Rome, Georgia as an Animal Science major with intentions of becoming a vet one day. I've been competing in dog agility for the last eight years and have loved every second of it!
From that day forward, I was hooked. After that, Raven, my dad, and I traveled all over the southeastern United States. Raven and I competed 2 or 3 weekends out of every month. It was a blast! We earned all the way up to our MX and MXJ titles. While in Rome, I will continue growing in my love for agility by assisting with agility classes in the area. I hope to be able to continue to compete, even after I go to college. I don't want to lose these amazing experiences with my family, friends, and most importantly, my dogs. I want to thank the AKC for their scholarship which will help me continue to realize my passion for canines and deepen that in learning to help them even more!
