Karianne Johansson & Chili
I live in a rural spot outside Oslo with my man and my 4-year-old son. We have two golden retrievers and 15 hens. Other than dog sports my interests are nature, cross-country skiing, and gardening. I work as a forest keeper and am lucky to have my dogs with me every day at work. I got my first dog 12 years ago, a mixed breed, who lives his older days with my parents. I’ve been training in rally obedience since 2016, prior to that I used to compete in agility and obedience.
My strengths: I’m a natural born competitor, and I rarely experience that my nerves keep me from doing my very best. My focus is that my dogs enjoy and love the training and competitions we do together.
Chilis strengths: He is 10 years old and is very experienced. His creativity is not very high, which means he rarely does anything on his own – he always awaits my cues and commands. He is sturdy, safe and loves to work with me. He is also a typical retriever, highly motivated by food!

Attended NoM Denmark 2019. 2nd price obedience class 3. Qualified for retriever hunting. Competed in retriever gun dog trials.
