We provide handling Services for all breeds with our specialty being Australian Shepherds.
I started showing dogs at the age of six and started to compete in junior showmanship at my local county fair at the age of eight, then went on to compete in AKC.
I have shown Bedlington Terriers, my mother Elly's breed, a Briard, a Pointer and Beagle in juniors. I then started to show a Standard Poodle, but soon learned the groom was very demanding. This is when my love for Aussies bloomed! A very good friend of mine, Betsy Atkinson, invited me over to see a litter of puppies and her dogs. As soon as I saw the litter and the rest of her dogs, I knew that I had found my passion!
AKC/ASCA Ch. Hearthside City Slicker was my first very own champion, the best feeling ever! I had finished other dogs before him, but this was different since Slick is my boy.
Please Contact Maren for futher info on services and fees.
