My name is Mariah Jo Atherton.

It has been 6 years since I started handling dogs when I was given my first doberman to show when I was 12 years old.
Over the years I have handled a huge variety of different breeds. Varying from Chihuahua to Great Danes or Xoloitzcuintle to Poodles.
I have been successful with many different breeds but my 2 most favourite wins are

winning my first ALL BREED BEST IN SHOW with Lee Parkers lovely pointer called lucky.
