I am just starting out in the dog world after a chance last year of attending dog shows and learning the finer art of handling by mentor Cristina Fornasier of Mychaka Whippets. I also managed to attend the finals in Brisbane to which by handling my favourite whippet and then my swap dog a Siberian Husky I was runner up in my age group - a great achievement after only a few months of being in this sport. So I was hooked.
2019 I will be attending shows with my lovely Dalmatian which has been provided to me by Paceaway's own Fran Darling to which I am internally grateful and my parents who show me so much support as I pursue an interest they are not familar with.
I plan to continue to learn different breeds and improve my handling and knowledge skills while enjoying all this with family and friends.
