I have been training and exhibiting Irish Setters in different venues for 47 years. I have also bred several very successful litters. My love for the Spinone Italiano began 13 years ago. I co-owned a very talented dog that I handled to his Championship and Grand Championship and then headed to the field to earn a Master Hunter title. He was awarded the Rufus Cup in 2012, was Select Dog at the 2016 National from the Field Dog Class and Select Dog at a SCOA Regional from the Veteran Class. I also co-own a bitch I handled to her Championship and will hopefully be in the field this year. I have also handled two dogs to AOM at SCOA Nationals. I am very excited and honored to be asked to judge the Field Dog Sweepstakes in 2022.
