Kim Crenshaw has earned
more than 80 competitive titles in AKC
multiple national all-breed rankings in both obedience and agility.
Kim is likely the most titled instructor of
obedience, agility or dog behavior in Central Alabama.
Kim Crenshaw is a dual-licensed judge.
Kim is an AKC Licensed Agility Judge, an AKC Licensed Rally Obedience
Judge and an ASCA Licensed Obedience Judge. She is the only trainer
in Central Alabama licensed in all of those areas.

has given speeches and presentations to the media, schools, seminars and
other large groups. Kim has trained dogs for television commercials and exhibitions
and has been interviewed multiple times by local media as a dog behavior
expert and to promote dog events. She is available to media and
groups for public education purposes. She is used to working in
production situations, is professional and prepares her dogs for that
Kim founded the Obedience Training Center
of Huntsville in 1992 and was Training Director and manager of the school through 2003. The Obedience Training Center was the largest training
school in the Southeast during those years in terms of number of students,
number of classes, number of instructors employed. It also produced the strongest
competitive team in the area under Kim's guidance. Many of her students
have also been nationally ranked in both obedience and agility. Kim
has personally instructed thousands of students and is equally comfortable
with large groups and private instruction.
Kim has personally titled five Labrador Retrievers, a Golden Retriever, three Papillons,
a Rottweiler, two Border Collies and a Shetland Sheepdog. She and her
students hold many area records for wins and high scores. Most of the dogs Kim
has shown in obedience have consistently earned scores of 195 or higher
for each title. Spike and Willow posted scores of 198 in Open.
Flash consistently scored in the 198 range in Novice and posted a 196 for his second Open leg.
Flash were ranked the #1 Novice Obedience team across all breeds for 2003
in both the First and Foremost as well as the Delany ranking systems, an
honor never before earned by a trainer in our area. In agility, her
Papillon Spike placed #2 in the 1999 National Puperoni Agility
Kim is an AKC licensed Agility Judge and Rally Obedience Judge. She
passed the agility judge seminar and tests on her first try in 2004 and
