Virtual Dog Show Profile
[ edit profile ]
I have been showing dogs since I was in diapers! My aunt was a breeder/handler of BIS/BISS winning Great Danes. She got my sister and I involved with show dogs at an extremely early age. My sister and I started with Afghan Hounds, but purchased our first Saluki in 1982 when I was age 8. I have loved Salukis ever since, breeding 4 Saluki litters and finishing many Champions, Field Champions, & Obedience Titled Salukis. I also was given my first Border Collie when I was 11 years old. I enjoyed obedience & herding events with her and have always owned a Border Collie since that time. I now own a BC Import from the Famous Clan-Abby Kennels in New Zealand.
I am 32 years old and have been a professional handler since I turned 18 and earned my AKC Junior Showmanship judging liscense at the age of 19.
