Breeder Experience:

My involvement with the purebred dog fancy has been since birth. My parents bred, showed, and hunted with AKC Wire Fox Terriers, along with Mini and Standard Poodles. I was showing dogs in AKC events starting as a young child. I relocated to Canada in 1984. I continued to participate in CKC, AKC, and International events as a breeder and exhibitor of champion Borzois, Salukis, and Boxers, and as an all-breed professional handler. I have many BIS, BISS, and Group wins to my credit. I also was a professional groomer for over 25 years.
