Chris began showing dogs in 1972, with a Miniature Schnauzer and a German Shorthaired Pointer. She and her husband finished 30 Miniature Schnauzers, 7 German Shorthaired Pointers, 2 Cairn Terriers, and 2 Shiba Inu, almost all breeder-owner-handled. Chris put obedience titles through UD on some of her dogs, field trialed the German Shorthairs, and her husband put the first AKC herding title on a Pumi, an FSS Hungarian herding breed. They show the Pumi in rare breed shows, but also show internationally having one Pumi who is a European and 4-time World Winner and another who is a European and World Winner. In addition to the shows, they have visited Hungary a number of times and imported breeding stock.
Chris is a student of all breeds, but especially those she is closely involved with. She developed the current judges education CDs for both the American Miniature Schnauzer Club and the National Shiba Club of America. She is the Chair of the Judges Education Committee for the Shiba club and is on the Board of Directors. She is the President of the Hungarian Pumi Club of America and recently presided over the writing and approval of their breed standard. She also presents seminars on the Terrier group and its form and function.
Chris is approved to judge the Terrier and Non-Sporting Groups, German Shorthaired Pointers, Giant and Standard Schnauzers Toy Manchester Terriers and Toy Poodles.
Professionally, Chris is a Project Manager for a company that provides case management software for courts. She works from home, which is a great way to have dogs in the office.
Chris has held just about every office in the various dog clubs she belongs to and has been Show Chair numerous times for specialties, group clubs, and all-breed clubs. She currently belongs to the American Miniature Schnauzer Club, National Shiba Club of America, Silver Falls Kennel Club, Dog Fanciers Association of Oregon, Terrier Association of Oregon, Portland Miniature Schnauzer Club, Dog Judges Association of America, and Oregon Dog Judges. She is also the webmaster for four of these clubs.
