HANDLING

I am often asked to handle dogs for other breeder/owners of various breeds.  Below are some of the dogs I have
shown to &/or towards their championships or on a Specials level attaining Group Wins, Group Placements,
Best In Specialty Show Awards and countless Breed Wins.

I do not show dogs to "make money" , I do it for the love of the sport.  Therefore, I charge only a small fee to help
cover expenses for a show weekend making it more affordable for all involved.  For dogs traveling with me to shows
I charge a fee of $50 per show day which covers handling. Lodging & travel expenses are divided equally among
the dogs.  For dogs being boarded during the week the fee is $5 per day and $15 for show preparations
(bathing/grooming).   I only travel with a small number of dogs (no more than 6 ) as I do not believe in "box truck
dogs" and believe each dog is entitled to individual attention.  I hand walk & exercise all dogs and do not rely on
ex-pens to get dogs out of their crates.  I believe this to play a vital role in the success of the show dog along with
their mental & physical health.

If you are interested in sending your dog with me to shows feel free to contact me by
e-mail or phone
(715)653-4350.  I also offer show training for puppies and adults at a rate of $250.00 per month which covers
board, traveling to shows for experience, stacking & gait training as well as attending structured handling classes
and practice matches.
