Over the years Lindsay expanded on her training experiences and tried out sports such as agility, conformation, rally, flyball, herding, dock diving, lure coursing, barn hunt, therapy visits, tracking, and schutzhund. In 2008, Lindsay attended The Academy of Dog Grooming Arts, where she finished the requirements to become a Certified Dog Groomer.
