Maria Phillips
Maria had her first obedience champion, a Miniature Schnauzer named Milou, in Sweden in 1999 as a junior Handler and has since titled a number of dogs in obedience, tracking and nose work. In 2011 she moved to the states and became a private contractor for Utah Detector Dogs. She discovered that her extensive experience on the competitive side carried over to the professional world easily.
During this time her Onion allergy got more severe and turned anaphylactic. She realized that detecting allergens were no different to detection drugs.
Since then she now has a registered Service Dog , Major Tobias Snowflake, assisting her and it has given her a new freedom in life.
Maria enjoys training Allergy Alert dogs since it is very rewarding to see other people with severe allergies enjoy their new freedom.
