Deanna Fairchild lives in San Jose, California with her husband and their 15-month-old son. She works full-time as a human resource manager and teaches part-time at San Jose State University.
Deanna and her three-year-old Border Collie, Jude, will be representing Team USA in the 26" jump height division this year.
Deanna has only been competing for a little more than five years and Jude for about 18 months but they are quickly becoming a well-seasoned team. Fresh off their second place at the Cynosport World Games Grand Prix of Dog Agility Championships, they are very excited to be competing in Italy!
Their goals for the event are to do the very best they can, cheer on their teammates and have fun both on and off the course.
Even though Jude is an intense competitor, he is also a big love bug. The only thing he loves more than agility is cuddling with Deanna.
