Crystal Richardson is a certified professional dog trainer, certified trick dog instructor, and a stunt dog judge. She has been training dogs since she was a teenager. Crystal came to be a trainer as a fellow student trying to learn how to communicate better with her dogs. Crystal attends numerous dog training workshops and seminars. She is an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.

Crystal has four dogs at home, two of which are herding breeds, a rescue Australian Shepherd named Shadow and a Border Collie named Radar. Shadow and Crystal compete in Disk Dogs, Herding, and Nosework. Currently, Crystal is training her puppy to do Live Find, search and rescue, and disk dogs. “No one has the right answers except the dog,” says Crystal. I enjoy hiking, flying kites, and rock collecting. My goals are to compete in Disk Dog Worlds.
