My personal objective is to breed Type, soundness of body, mind, spirit. Show dogs and pets alike must have a good temperament and be healthy and sound.
As a dog therapist. I enjoy training my dogs and doing some agility, to let the dogs have a full and fun life. I find it important to socialize puppies well before the leave the home giving them a good start in life, and I like to keep contact with the owners helping them with grooming and training.
