Angelica Steinker loved dogs early on.
“When I was little, I begged my parents for a brother or sister, and they said no and they got me a dog. And it all spiraled out of control from there,’’ she says.
Steinker is founder of Courteous Canine, Inc. in Lutz. The 20-year-old company offers basic manners training — no longer called obedience — as well as training for dog sport competitions, such as moving through obstacle courses. Steinker has three dogs, border collies Power and Particle and a Papillon named Moment. She takes them all to scent competitions, where dogs have to find scents hidden around a course.
Steinker, 55, talked about dogs and dog training with the Tampa Bay Times.
