Carolyn Murray owns and operates The Canny Canine in Bozeman, Montana. She completed her CNWI training at the end of 2016 and was the first certified instructor in the state. A forever student, she regularly seeks out and attends continuing education workshops both in-person and online. She has had the honor of starting dogs all over Montana and offers an experienced eye when troubleshooting competitive teams. Her comprehensive training style includes supporting the handler and honoring the dog.
Since 2016, Carolyn has built an extensive K9 Nose Work® program, known locally as "Team Bozeman!!", and offers all levels of classes from Intro to Elite. Team Bozeman handlers compete very successfully at all levels of the sport. The Canny Canine hosts a number of events annually including trials, ORTs, and workshops. These well-attended events are a group effort and Team Bozeman keeps it fun for everyone!
Carolyn and her two shepherds enjoy traveling and love to trial all over the Western US. Her white shepherd, Scout, is loving life competing at the Elite level while her young German shepherd, Lemmy, is teaching Carolyn all about toy reward and prepping for his NW2. In her spare time, Carolyn is the Director of Finance for a busy and rapidly growing economic development non-profit serving southwest Montana.
