Handling

A show dog handler presents a purebred dog to the judges of a dog show so they can evaluate how well the dog’s physical traits conform to breed standards. While a professional handler makes showing a dog look easy, it’s actually very hard work. A successful show-dog handler must commit hundreds of hours to training, conditioning, grooming and showing the dogs in his/her care. However, if you are willing to put forth the effort, you can have a fun and rewarding career working with your favorite animal.

We take great pride in our presentation of quality dogs for discriminating breeders and owners. Our presentation focuses on both the highlighting of an individual’s virtues as well as the appropriate selection of knowledgeable judges. Specializing in shelties and in rough and smooth collies, we travel throughout the eastern US doing both specialties and all-breeds. Contact us for rates, contract, schedule, and availability.
