I attended my first dog show in 1967 with my older brother. From the moment I walked onto the field, I knew this was something I wanted to do. From that point on, there was no turning back. We had always had dogs in our home, but the show world became a magical place for me.

I purchased my first Pug and proceeded to finish her championship. As a breeder/owner/handler I found my calling as well as a passion that is lasting my lifetime. With the help of my husband, Bruce, and our daughter, Ann, we continued the Heinzinger prefix on both our Rottweilers and Pugs, and now Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. We showed many dogs to their championships and over the years even managed to keep a few in the top ten.

Our daughter continued the family tradition, like her cousin, in showing in the Jr. Showmanship ring. She and I finished many champions from both breeds. To create well-balanced Rottweilers, we also enjoyed the obedience aspect and earned occasional companion dog titles on our working dogs.

My knowledge of the breeds began in ernest while teaching conformation classes over a ten-year period.

As a member of two all breed clubs, to local breed clubs our time was pretty much filled with dog activities. I have held evey position within an all-breed club and am currently the Secretary and Show Chairman for Richmond Dog Fanciers. This helps to understand the demands of putting on a dog show from both sides of the ring.

Continual education has always been important in our family. Attending seminars and National Study Groups has been a pleasure that I undertake whenever possible. Understanding breed type is the most fundamental element in judication.

Like many others in this sport, exhibiting, breeding and teaching evolved in judging. I was first approved for Jr. Showmanship, then Rottweilers and Pugs. Within four years I was approved for the balance of the Working Group. I am now approved for the Non-Sporting Group and the Toy Group and am 3/4 through the Sporting breeds.
