In 100 words or less, how did you become involved with dogs? Conformation/Performance events)
I have been in the sport of purebred dogs for close to 40 years, having been a professional handler (and a member of the Dog Handlers Guild during that time frame) for the last 28 years. I have bred champion English Springer Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Silky Terriers and Pomeranians. I have campaigned dogs from all 7 groups, many of which ended up being ranked nationally in the top 5 of their breed system. I have judged numerous sweepstakes assignments for both specialty clubs as well as all-breed clubs. I am currently retired from professional handling but a conduct conformation class in the Chicago area while working on my AKC judge's license.
In 100 words or less, what do you feel is your biggest accomplishment with your dog(s)? (Conformation/Performance events)
Breeding your first home bred Champion, winning the breed at a National specialty, going BIS and to see your students at the conformation classes do the winning they so deserve.
