About Me

I have been involved with dogs most of my life. My Parents owned German Shepherds and as a young child, we went to a lot of dog show. In 1984 I showed my first German Shepherd in All Breeds and Specialty Shows and ever since then I have been hooked.

I also competed in junior handlers and was top junior 1985 for the Working Dog Club and also SIGSL
