Sinead began K9 training in the law enforcement dog arena over 20 years ago. Her passion truly started with detection and trailing/tracking. Sinead’s specialty is the various forms of detection work that she has studied under many masters in this discipline.
Several years ago Sinead acquired her own working dog specifically for narcotics detection work but added a variety of skills over time ultimately producing a good example of a Multi-Purpose Canine.
Sinead travels throughout the United States teaching detection, K9 Medic first aid classes, and trailing/tracking to a variety of agencies. When her teaching day is over, she stays very busy working Magnus Ares in a professional narcotics detection role.
Florida Task Force 6 has Sinead as one of their Canine Search Specialists. She and Magnus were deployed for the Champlain Towers Collapse at Surfside.
