Type of Breeds
I have been involved in the sport of purebred dogs since 1972. A breeder-exhibitor of Alaskan Malamutes, I have bred over 60 champions, in a limited breeding program; including multiple all breed Best In Show winners as well as multiple National Specialty winners. I owner handled the youngest Working Group winner in the history of the breed, a record that still stands to this day.

I purchased my first show Doberman 17 years ago. I have had one Doberman litter that are 18 months old, with one Champion and more on the way. In addition to exhibiting Alaskan Malamutes and Dobermans, I have owned and exhibited Akitas, Bernese Mtn. Dogs, Lhasa Apsos, a Clumber Spaniel and a Whippet.

I am currently approved to judge Best In Show, Jr. Showmanship, the Working, Sporting, Herding, Hound and Non Sporting groups. I have judged abroad in France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Belgium, New Zealand, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Japan, China, S. Korea and Australia. I have judged National specialties for Akitas, Alaskan Malamutes, Portuguese Water Dogs, Siberian Husky, Newfoundlands, Golden Retriever, and Border Collies. I have been honored with judging the Westminster Kennel Club seven times including judging the Working Group in 2010. In 2016 I judged the National Dog show on Thanksgiving Day and the Working group at the AKC/Royal Canine show in Orlando. My husband Barry and I share our homes with two Alaskan Malamutes, two Dobermans and a Border Collie.
