Thankyou for selecting to judge the tournament of champions! I grew up in the dog show world, as my parents were breeders of Saint Bernards including the infamous “Ben”. It wasn’t until after high-school I took the plunge in the sport of confirmation. In 2004, I started working for professional handler Nina Fetter. After that time, I began handling and then decided I needed a little MORE spice in my life by becoming a police officer. Since then I have handled dogs professionally for 13 years, specializing in working breeds; Saint Bernard’s, Mastiffs, Corso’s, Newfoundlands, etc. I have campaigned multiple best in show winning dogs in different breeds, attained number one rankings in multiple breeds, and most recently won the last two Saint Bernard Club of America National Specialties (2020, 2021). I am an 11 year veteran police officer, a task force officer with the US marshals, and I’ve served on the Saint Bernard Club of America board. I also had the pleasure to judged National sweepstakes for the SBCA.
And, if you want to dive in a little further, I run the “cromicles” which is a dog show folly based video production which depicts the actual events that happen dog shows. Mostly, the embarrassing times.
The Mastiff breed is a landmark for the foundation of my breed the Saint Bernard. It is my distinct honor to judge the best of the best at this event. Thankyou.
