I started showing dogs in AKC with my family in 2007 when I was 13 years old.  Since then, I have shown a variety of dogs for people gaining a great deal of experience not only in showing my terrier breed but other breeds and groups as well.  Showing for others has been a great learning experience.  In 2016 I decided to take my hobby to a new level and offer my services to others.  I know at dog shows there is a need for ring- side pick up, grooming and weekend handlers. I can fill those needs, professionally, with experience, passion and dedication to my trade, taking excellent care of your dog, making your dogs look their best and competitive in the show ring. 


"Lydia has been wonderful to work with. She showed my Cairn Terrier on many occasions when she was a Junior Handler and was responsible and truly cared about my dog" " I would absolutely recommend her and will use her again in the future"-   Minnesota

"As someone that has been involved in the show world basically all my life, I can testify that Lydia is very mature and an excellent dog handler, including finishing my dog's AKC Championship.  She is a honest and hardworking competitor that is wonderful with her dogs."   -  AKC Judge, Minnesota
