I started Junior Handling when I got my first dog, a Beagle. I have since gained experience in handling different breeds such as Bracco Italiano, Irish Setter, Icelandic Sheepdog, English Cocker Spaniel, Lhasa Apso, Puddle, Pug, Australian Shepherd, Australian Cattle Dog, Jack Russel Terrier, Samojid, Cairn Terrier, Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Pointer and so many others, along with my own Beagles, whom I've trained myself. I love dogs, and I love showing them!!

In 2015 I won Best New Handler in Australia.
In 2016 I competed in my first State Final, where I placed 1. over-all and became Champion Junior Handler for NSW 2016 with my Beagle and swap dog Saluki.
In 2017 I competed in my second State Final, where I placed 1. over-all winner with my Beagle and swap dog Whippet for Champion Junior Handler for NSW 2017.

In 2016 I competed at my first Sydney Royal Easter Show where I placed 1. in my age group, 11 to under 13 years old, with my Beagle.
In 2017 I competed at Sydney Royal Easter Show, where I placed top 6, in the 13 to under 19 age, with my Beagle out of 27 handlers.
In 2018 I competed at Sydney Royal Easter Show, where I placed 1. in my age group, 13 to under 15 years old, with my Basenji.

Such amazing experiences in such a short period of time. Thank you to everyone who's been there and supported me.
