Show Ring Handling Graduates

Monday night was our last class for my students to handle their dogs in the show ring. I saw great improvement and confidence in the five of them. Little Sandy, a mini long haired dacshund who shied away from all of us giants, on his fifth night he boldly trotted right up to me, the judge. The clumber party, three of them, could not be sweeter. I'd never been close to this breed before and I was pleased to have the opportunity to learn more about them. Warren said that years ago he had hunted over Clumbers. Lynne's flat coat, a happy teen shows no hesitation in the ring. Andi's standard poodle puppy showed everyone what it means to be "poodly"...spirited yet mannerly. I wish them much success in the upcoming shows.

Thanks for great training. Quincy and I learned allot. I know the new handlers will feel much more comfortable in the show ring now.
