MINIATURE WIRE HAIRED
I have had a very successful time in Junior Handling, winning the Crufts Gundog Group Handling Final in 2006,my 1st time at Crufts, I was so very proud of this achievement. Also my 1st time entering the Richmond Finals, I won the Gundog group. I have proved myself Handling in Ireland where I have won Team Events and many major handling classes. The highlight was in 2011 when I was Top Handler in the 15-17yrs Age Group and also at the Junior Handling Finals I was the Overall Winner and represented Ireland at Crufts 2012 & European Dog Show 2013 in the International Finals.
I am also the youngest handler, at only 11yrs old to have won a CC in the UK with a Golden Retriever....also handling our Dachshund to a CC,
I have made up champions in Irish Setters, Golden Retrievers, PBGV’s, Dachshunds
I am available to Professionally Handle your Dog at a Show.
I started Junior Handling in October 2005, I didn’t have any training to start with so Mum and I watched and learnt from the ringside. I got a book ‘The White Way’ by Marina White and that really helped. I listened and learnt as much as I could from other handlers and take into account all that the judges told me.
I currently handle Golden Retrievers, Dachshunds, Deerhound, Irish Setters, PBGV’s, Saluki’s. Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes and am available to handle other breeds when required.
