Desiree Snelleman is a dog trainer and coach from Bonney Lake, Washington. She and her six-year-old Border Collie, Pace, are representing Team USA for the second time in as many years. This team is very familiar with the podium, taking top honors at last year's event and a medal at the United States Dog Agility Association's Cynosport World Games in 2014. The team has been competing together for eight years.
Des is very excited to be on a team with so much talent this year. Her goals are to improve on everything she and Pace accomplished last year and increase the team's overall medal count.
Pace loves the game of agility and the thrill of competition. He's also a very keen competitor and awesome teammate to Desiree. Although, his main goal in life is to dip his toes in as many bodies of water as possible all over the world. Whenever there's an opportunity to go for a dip, Pace is the first one to grab a towel and head straight for the water.
