 ~Specializing in Sporting, Working & Herding Dogs~
Also shown dogs from the Hound, Toy, & Non-Sporting Groups

This is my LOVE. 
I have had the pleasure to handle wonderful dogs to their championships and top rankings in their breeds.   

My aunt introduced me to the dog show world when I was a kid.   Through the years she owned Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Great Danes, German Shepherds and a Cocker .  My uncle, Art Franklin,  a breeder/exhibitor of Saint Bernards and Newfoundlands also fueled this love. 
I developed my handling skills over the years from top working & sporting handlers and first hand experience.  I started handling my own dogs in 1988, starting with "Neige", my first Great Pyrenees, and I have not stopped since.
