I have the privilege of being involved in the dog ownership, dog breeding, dog training & behavior community for over 40 years.
Unknowingly, my career started at age 8, holding grooming clippers and grooming Standard Poodle puppies. This led to being self-employed at age 19. I continued to shape my skills with an all-breed dog grooming shop where I also sold dog food and pet supplies. Canine competitions and grooming competitions offered me the first 20 years of my share of successes and challenges. The next 25 years led me through just about every part of dog ownership communities.
Veterinary visits – Educational Seminars & teleconference calls about dog breeding – Trade Shows – and many more educational events for the care and breeding of dogs over the last 45 years have laid the foundation for the knowledge I have today to share with all new puppy homes.
