I am not a professional handler! However I do enjoy showing and will handle dogs for select friends. I naturally will show pups from my breeding program for their owners. Breeds I frequentlIy show in addition to Dobermans are Golden Retrievers, Newfoundlanders and Rottweillers.
This is Gidget, she is the first toy breed dog that I groomed and handled to all 10 of her championship points. My thanks to Jim & Saundra Fare (fareway.ca) for trusting me with this sweet girl. She was bred by Cheryl Drake of Ashstone kennels.
This is Peaches, owned by Jim & Saundra Fare (fareway.ca) and bred by Kimberly MacDonald (Stormynight kennels). Peaches is a dream to show, she has beautiful movement and we have become a great team. Trying to win points in Golden Retrievers makes Dobermans seem easy! Peaches was awarded her first points by judge David Swartwood at the Trout Creek Show.
This beautiful Newfoundlander is Fern. She is is the much loved pet of Chris and Glenda Alderson. Fern made her ring debut on November 28th, 2009, under judge Sean Shields, going Best of Winners and Best of Opposite Sex for her first 2 points. Look for Fern in the show ring in 2010.
This beautiful briard puppy took Best Puppy in Group at the Credit Valley Kennel Club show on Sunday, December 13th, under judge Don Fitzsimmons. Scarlett earned 2 points towards her championship over the weekend. This sweet girl, Chaotic's Driven to Win, is bred/owned/loved by Shirley Newby-Tate, of Chaotic Briards (http://www.chaoticbriards.com/).
Unexpected Decision Von Vasfor, aka Buddy.
It was my pleasure to show this sweet rottie boy at the CKC Purina Charity Show (March 2010), winning Best of Breed both days! My thanks to owner Penny Costanza for trusting me with her baby, and his breeder Phil for asking me to show Buddy.
Below is Woodstock, a mini long haired dachshund, taking Best of Winners over 7 females and Best of Opposite Sex over a male champion for a 3 point win. Owned by Shelley Grady and her son Ben.
This is Ch. Roldin's Dark Warrior, Aidan, he belongs to a good friend, who trusted me to show him at a regional specialty.
