For The Love of Showing

Philia is non-romantic love between equals or a love for activities. Ai means the love of things or activities. These two words don’t begin to tell the story how I fell in love with showing.

RNC & NOC In The Age of COVID-19

AKC had to cancel the RNC and NOC in July due to CoVid 19, but shifted it to Orlando in December 2020 replacing the AKC Classic. It is an interesting time to compete in dog events of any kind.

Tricks Training

Rocko, Blaze and I have been working for months on different tricks for our AKC Tricks titles. Since no classes have been offered for Tricks we learned together.

Training At Home

Struggling to find a place to train? Days are short, buildings shut, classes cancelled. If you’re feeling discouraged you’re not alone!
