Julia's career as disc-dogger started 2001, when her first dog Lara jumped into her life and decided that flying plastic discs are her favorite toy. Since this year Julia is established in the top ten of the disc-dog scene and celebrated with her Border Collie Lara, a wide range of national and international achievements and does not just delight the audience at competitions with her skills, but even the audience at her shows.

She is not just active in competing successfully at competitions. She also enjoys sharing her longtime experience in her book: Discdogging: Tips and tricks for beginners and advanced learners. In her seminars and her training lessons with her Team ( FundogTeam, in Karlsruhe , Germany )she also shares her knowledge with all who are interested and active in the sport.

Her hometown, Karlsruhe, is also the location of her annual event she’s hosted since 2006. Since 2008 her event, FundogTeam Jam, is an AWI qualifier. Julia is the AWI European Tournament Director and a key person in the organization.
