Having initially avoided going in the ring, I soon realised that it could actually be quite an enjoyable experience and took to handling dogs for others, as well as my own.
Over the short period of time I’ve been active in the showring I’ve handled a variety of Spitz breeds, mostly Alaskan Malamutes & Greenland Dogs, but also the odd Siberian Husky, Canadian Eskimo Dog and even Norwegian Buhund. These have varied in age and experience, from CC winners through to dogs at their first shows, from 6 month old puppies to veterans in double figures. I am proud to say that at Champ Shows I have taken BOB, CCs & RCCs, class wins and Crufts qualified some for the first time, whilst at Open shows I have won classes, BOBs, Group Placings and handled in the Best In Show ring – but most importantly of all, me and the dogs have had fun!
My sincere thanks to everyone who has entrusted me with their beautiful dogs so far. I look forward to making more canine friends in the ring in the near future :)
