" He is your friend, your partner,
your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true,
to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion"

  This saying pretty much sums up what I am all about.   The dogs always come first.   I have a strong background in competitive sport, and after years of rodeoing, I began working with dogs, taking courses, and eventually training dogs for narcotics detection, rescue, explosive detection, and personal protection, as well as dogs for penitentiary service.

  I am fascinated with the process of working with the dog as a whole, finding out where we can go, and how much we can accomplish.  I treat and handle all my dogs with sensitivity and respect - remembering that each dog is an individual.aerial view of the house and kennel property

  I primarily attend All-breed and Specialty shows in Canada and the United States. I have also attended Crufts in the UK,  World Shows in Europe and South America and Mexico.  Dogs I have handled have won at Crufts, the World Shows, as well as, at some of Canada's largest and/or most prestigious shows, including Credit Valley, Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers (October) and Alberta Kennel Club (August)   Many of the dogs I have handled over the years have been ranked in the Top 10, both at breed and at group level. 

  I have handled dogs from all 7 groups to many All Breed Best In Show awards, Regional and National Best In Specialty wins. A BIS in the Terrier Group in 2008 completes the Set with a Best in Show in all Seven Groups. I have also handled dogs that have won or placed in groups in the US.

   I drive to the majority of the shows I attend and my dogs travel in a specially customized van, which is air-conditioned and insulated, providing security and comfort for your dog.
