We are a small show kennel in Northeastern Oregon. We show in AKC and UKC. We show Siberian huskies and do some handling for friends and family with other breeds. Our main focus is showing our dogs.
I am 23 years old and have been showing in AKC & UKC since 2010. I have been around dogs my whole life and Siberian huskies since I was 7 years old. I was in 4-H as a teen and had a wonderful teacher although she taught more on obedience then conformation. I attend a handler class put on by the closest Kennel club, unfortunately it is 100 miles away from where I live, so attending every week is a little hard. I try to go at lest once a month though. I enjoy showing and working with the dogs. My goal is to have every dog championed.
I am currently a dog groomer at Petco. My goal is to open my own grooming shop in my home town as there is a big need of one there. I have been trained under the watchful eyes of Kasey Koseph at Kanine Kreations.
I have very strong feeling about breeding. I feel if you breed the right way there is little to no profit to be made. I make sure every dog has their hip and eyes certified at the right age. I spay all female over 5 yr old as I have been taught it is very hard for them to have puppies after the age of 5. After all, the health of my dogs are more important then having puppies. I also feel strongly about spay/neutering. If the dog is not of show or breeding quality then it has no business breeding. That is why I am so firm on the spay/ neutering of all my pet quality puppies.
As I am still young and still learning, I admit that I have made a few mistakes. Trusting the wrong person, not trusting the right, getting dogs that were not of good quality and the having to deal with problems with them. However I have learned from those mistakes and know how not to repeat them.
