Mary Lou uses a philosophical approach to dog training to ensure that dogs attitude and the relationship between the handler and the dog is the highest priority. A creative thinker, Mary Lou is always looking for a better solution to everyday problems that trainers face. She has developed training products like the “Touch It!” and “Hit It!” Board to provide trainers with a simpler, more reliable way to teach running contacts. When Mary Lou discovered the StowAway Cargo Carrier, she knew she had found a better solution for transporting her luggage and dogs gear to agility competitions.
“I absolutely love my StowAway! It packs tons of stuff I need when heading off for weekend agility competitions with my dogs. I used to have a traditional roof carrier and hated having to climb up to get my gear. Having my supplies at waist level makes traveling with my dogs so much more convenient. The swing away design makes it a breeze to get my dogs in and out of the back of my truck!”
