Getting to Know Your Candidates – Leerie Jenkins

Leerie Jenkins

Leerie has previously served 13 years on the NAFA Board of directors (2009 through 2022), 12 of those years were as Chair of the Board.  During those years he served on every committee, some of which he chaired.

Leerie prides himself on considering the needs and situations for all flyball clubs, with their varied priorities and goals (e.g. “just” having fun, dog title points, winning placements, setting records and personal bests, etc.,…), as well as considering the needs and circumstances of all regions in NAFA.  He feels it’s critical to consider all these varied needs when writing rules and setting policy.

He is a supervising judge, and feels strongly that judges are there to make sure the rules are followed, but also to help steward competitors to have fun, make good choices, and behave in a sportsmanlike manner.

He co-owns and runs a dog training and events facility, Quicksilver Canine, in North Carolina, with his wife, Julie, and mother-in-law, Deb.  Quicksilver Canine has been a bronze level CanAm sponsor for the last two years.

Leerie would love to serve again on the NAFA board and continue to give back to his favorite sport.
