We were previously involved in Carolina Dogs so many of our accomplishments with that breed are featured here as well as our two altered Rat Terrier and our mixed breed who participates in fun events. We show our dogs because we enjoy it and it helps us make sure we are staying on track with the breed standard in our kennel. Conformation showing is "an appraisal of breeding stock". Our preference is the International style shows where dogs are given a rating against the breed standard and an actual written critique by the judges rather than only a placement.
We show our dogs in AKC, UKC, ICE, IABCA. We train our dogs for their AKC Canine Good Citizen titles as well as Dash Dogs, Trick Titles, even some dock diving and weight pull. Working closely with our dogs in various types of performance also helps us make sure we are working with dogs that have a trainable and motivated temperament.
We do not expect our puppy owners to show their dogs. In fact we don't really sell puppies for showing because you can't be sure a young puppy is going to make a great show prospect. But, well-started puppies from healthy, conformationally correct, and trainable parents will make a better family member.
