Handling Services


I have been showing dogs for 10 years, and in that time I have shown dogs from the Herding, Hound, Sporting, Toy, Terrier and Working¬† groups. I specialize in Herding, Working and Sporting dogs, and I have experience grooming many breeds. I have been successful in Juniors over the years, winning a class of 12 to move up into Open class, and my first time showing in Open I was awarded a second place. I have won over 25 First Place ribbons in Juniors, multiple Best Junior Handlers, and was ranked #2 in Border Collies in 2008, and #24 in Colorado. I have won many UKC¬† and International Herding and Sporting Group Placements, and have over 30 Best of Breed wins in AKC. I have won multiple major wins with various dogs, and my most recent accomplishment was putting a 5 point major on a 7 month old puppy, owned by my Gordon Setter’s breeder.

Please contact brigadoonbc@gmail.com for information on handling services. Although I am no longer a junior, at this point I am not charging for handling. For me, it is about experience. I will happily use my own grooming equipment or yours, whichever you prefer. I do not offer boarding at this time, but I am more than willing to work with a dog outside of shows.
