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, Poodle, 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 and my Basenji, 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, from the 10 to under 13 age group.
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, from the 13 to u 19 age group.
