Paula Hartinger, of Cincinnati, Ohio, is half of one of dogdom's best-known husband-and-wife teams. "When I first met my husband, Roger, it was predestined that I would become involved in purebred dogs," she says. "When we were dating, we went to dog shows and kennels. Many times our chaperone on dates was Roger's Great Dane!" The Hartingers began breeding and exhibiting dogs in the late 1950s, first Basset Hounds, then Standard Schnauzers and Lakeland Terriers. They finished several Standard Schnauzer champions and have mentored other exhibitors. Mrs. Hartinger was a professional handler of note, guiding many dogs to championships.

An AKC judge with more than 30 years' experience, Mrs. Hartinger's major assignments have been "just too many to single out a few," but she refers to the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship as "a true highlight." She is approved for all sporting, hound, terrier, toy, non-sporting, and herding breeds, most of the Working Group, Juniors, and Best in Show. Mrs. Hartinger is past president of both the Standard Schnauzer and Miniature Schnauzer clubs of Cincinnati. She has served as show chairman for the Standard Schnauzer Club of America national specialty, the Clermont County Kennel Club (life member), and the Standard Schnauzer Club of Cincinnati, and as show secretary of the Cincinnati Kennel Club (life member).
