  I have been actively involved in dog shows since 1985, in both obedience and conformation.
I  also have experience with free style obedience, scent hurdling, agility and flyball.

I have had the privilege to be involved in the handling and grooming
of some of Canada’s Top Show Dogs and
have either pointed, finished or put group placements on the following breeds (to name a few):

English Cockers
Miniature Schnauzers
Toy Poodles
Standard Poodles
Shetland Sheepdogs

I have currently completed over
50 conformation championships
2 obedience trial championships
5 CDX's and 7 CD's
with over 40 High in Class wins
and over 10 High In Trials.
