    About Mary Ellen

    Mary Ellen Barry

    Mary Ellen has a B.S in Accounting from the University of Scranton and was a CPA for 3 years in one of the big firms and then spent another 9 years in private companies as accounting manager and controller. In 2003, she was laid off and spent the summer teaching dog agility to help make ends meet while she looked for another job. She enjoyed it so much that she didn’t think she could go back to the corporate world and she's been teaching agility full time ever since.


    Mary Ellen's popularity as a seminar presenter has grown due to her ability to break things down for students and explain and clarify concepts.  She has an excellent eye and is able to pinpoint simple training exercises for handlers to work on at home to improve coursework.


    Mary Ellen is a OneMind Dogs coach, being selected as part of the first pilot group in 2015.  The USA boasts only 6 OMD Coaches and she is thrilled to be a part of teaching this method.


    Mary Ellen has been involved in agility for 22 years and has had much success on both the national and international level. Mary Ellen has competed at the IFCS and WAO World Championships a total of 6 times with 2 different dogs and has won multiple medals at those events including 6 gold medals. She has placed on the podium at the USDAA Cynosport World games several times including placing 1st and 2nd with Maizy and E-Z at the 2012 Dog Agility Masters Team Tournament and placing 2nd with Maizy in the 2012 Grand Prix.  Mary Ellen also coached the 2015 WAO team which competed in the Netherlands.


    Mary Ellen has been a contributor for over 13 years to Clean Run Magazine and is the author of The Long Jump and Foundation Fundamentals which are both training DVD's and are available through www.cleanrun.com


    Mary Ellen has been an instructor full time for over 13 years and has taught seminars and camps throughout the U.S and Canada.
