I started showing dogs in 2016, though it was not on a regular basis. Around April 2017 I decided to become more active with dog shows, and showing lots of different breeds. I have experience with Beagles, Basenji, Pointers, English Springer, Pug, Norwegian Elkhound, Rottweiler, and many others.

I have competed:
In 2016 NSW State Finals, as my first State Finals, with my Beagle but was unplaced.
In 2017 NSW State Finals, 10 to under 13, I showed my Beagle, and we were shortlisted. I got an amazing Pointer for my swap dog, and we were Highly Commended. I placed in top 6 for my age group.
In 2018 NSW State Finals, 10 to under 13, I showed a Norwegian Elkhound, and we got shortlisted. As my swap dog I got a Rottweiler, and we were placed 2. in my age group.

In 2016 I also competed in my first Jr Kennel Clubs Members Handlers, and I won 1. place with my Beagle.
In 2017 I showed a Pointer at the Jr Kennel Clubs Member Handlers, and I won 1. in the 10 to under 13 age group.
In 2018 I showed a Rottweiler at the Jr Kennel Clubs Members Handlers and I won 3. in the 10 to under 13 age group.

In 2016 I competed at Sydney Royal with a Chihuahua, but we were unplaced.
In 2017 I competed at Sydney Royal with my Beagle, and we placed 5th.
In 2018 I competed at Sydney Royal Easter Show with my Beagle, and we placed 5th.

I love my dogs, but I also love all other breeds of dogs. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and helped me.
