Dieuwke Van der Velde

Dieuwke van der Velde is currently teaching puppy agility and agility for fun at Fetch Sam in San Jose. She has had 4 dogs of her own; one senior Aussie, Draco (RIP), who she did 3 years of Search and Rescue with through CARDA. One Catahoula named Ofi, a heeler named Dallas, and the youngest, a 12-month old Aussie mix who she has taken through several obedience classes and agility classes. With the new pup in the house, Dieuwke got inspired to teach the other dogs and her two cats, new tricks and even started doing beginning agility with them at home. It is never too late to teach old dogs new tricks or to get a better relationship with them.

Dieuwke has been fostering puppies since 2009 for Catahoula Rescue, Pound Puppy Rescue, The Perfect Dog Rescue, and the Morgan Hill Animal Shelter. Currently she is fostering a 4-month old Border Collie puppy.

Dieuwke got her masters in Microbiology in the Netherlands and after 6 years working in biotech and 6 years at Stanford she decided to hike dogs for a living and has been professionally for over 12 years now.
