            Welcome to Platte Valley K9 Training.
     Hi!  I'm Marsha Seck.  I grew up at Oberlin, Kansas, which is located about 100 miles south of North Platte on
Highway 83.  Our family moved to North Platte, in 1999, when Mark began working for Union Pacific Railroad.  
     I'm the widowed mother of three children, ages 24, 21 and 19.  I have been around dogs all my life.  I was in
4-H for ten years and had many livestock projects.  Besides the normal cooking and sewing projects, I preferred
to train my dog, my horse, break steers to lead and participated in livestock judging contests.  I was a member and
officer of FFA throughout high school and qualified to compete at the state Dairy Judging contest.  I participated
in all sports in high school, qualifying for state track in the hurdles as a Junior and was a starting Senior on the
first girls team from our school to compete at the state basketball tournament.  I played volleyball at Colby
Community College where I earned an Associate of Arts degree in General Agriculture.
     I spent 7 years breeding, raising and training racing greyhounds in the late 80's and early 90's.  I started
working with and training German Shepherds in 2004.  I started my kennel,
von der Traumwolfen Working German
Shepherds in 2005.  I am a member of the
United Schutzhund Club of America, the German Shepherd Dog Club of
America - Working Dog Association and the Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde of Germany.  I participate in the
sport of Schutzhund.  It is a three phase sport that originated in Germany, and consists of Tracking, Obedience
and Protection.   My association with the sport has given me the opportunity to meet, visit and train with some
wonderful friends and world level competitors from Germany and the Czech Republic.
     I compete in German-style Conformation, AKC Conformation and Obedience, as well as training in Agility.  All
of these activities help to make my dogs well rounded family members and canine citizens.  I am an AKC Canine
Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator and certified in Canine CPR and First Aid.
     I hope that you will consider taking private lessons, or a class with me.  It is a chance to increase the bond
between yourself and your dog, as well as helping them become a better family member.  There are many different
activities that you can do with your dog, and I hope to open the door to those opportunities.  I'm please to offer
my dog training skills to the North Platte, Nebraska area.  Please visit my
training page for more information on
what I offer.
