Havalah is 8 years old and started her Juniors journey in the September 2022. Our family has been attending dog shows on a part-time basis since 2021 (it's one of our favourite places).

In her very first heat, Havalah took out First Place against two other seasoned handlers and so began the wonderful journey of handling. She helps out her Mum with the Miniature Schnauzers in the big ring and is the best puppy helper ever. She enjoys handling many other breeds and isn't afraid to take on a difficult dog.

Havalah is a gentle soul, and a natural with animals - especially dogs. She loves hanging out with the other Junior Handlers too. When she grows up, she wants all the German breeds!

Havalah competed in her very first State Final in August 2023 with four other handlers and took out FIRST PLACE!
