About 24k Retrievers


Destiny Martel:  Owner/Operator, 24K Retrievers

Working with animals has always been a passion of mine.  Over the past decade I have had the opportunity to work closely with animals in a variety of settings from ensuring their health and safety as a veterinary technician to fast-paced agility trials, and many places in between.Destiny at a hunt trial.

I have been training and competing with my own dogs in the American Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club for the past nine years.  We have had great success in various competitive contexts such as Obedience, Rally, and Agility Trials as well as Hunt Tests.  All three of my current competition dogs have earned High in Trials.

I have been a member of the Tallahassee Dog Obedience Club since 2000 and served on the Board of Directors for several years.  I was also a member of the TDOC Training Committee from 2001 until August 2009, which has afforded me the opportunity to assist and instruct in many obedience classes with many different breeds.  My other affiliations include: Golden Retriever Club of America, Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club, United Kennel Club Hunting Retriever Club, and Therapy Dogs International.

I look forward to sharing my skills and experience with you and your dog.
