    Karen Trimble
    Secretary

    I started my herding journey being the dog when I went to visit my grandparents cattle farm. I was then introduced to herding with dogs with my 1st Bouvier des Flandres. We did it all, trialing, set out, worming, banding, in pastures and pens. Then cancer struck. I've since had Bouviers, Aussies and Border Collies. I have helped people with many different breeds, I've judged instinct tests and trials for over 2 decades. I love watching animals and people work together to get stuff done, 3 mammals, prey and predator all speaking different languages trying to communicate. I have always enjoyed AHBA and it's program and worked to build and grow it throughout the years. I'm very happy to be able to serve as secretary and offer my help to you all.

Lynn’s personal breeds are the Australian Cattle Dog, Mudi and Border Collie, however she has also trained, competed and/or titled with many breeds. Lynn’s love and respect for dogs, animals, and the sport in general shines through her as she teaches, judges and competes with herding enthusiasts.
