Our primary show territories are in FL, GA, AL, MS, LA and TX. We attend the American Boxer Club National Specialty annually. Attendance at Regional Specialty events depends on location.

I have been involved with the Boxer breed for 18 years and am a member of the Boxer Club of Louisiana, Houston Boxer Club and American Boxer Club. I have been active in showing Boxers for 17 years. Starting out as an owner handler I soon began handling for others. My love for the sport and the boxer breed has grown through the years and I enjoy each and everytime I enter the ring. After working full-time and showing dogs for 10 years, I surrendered my job in May 2003, and begain a full-time handling career. Although I have handled other breeds, Boxers are and will always be my main focus.
While not always in Boxers, dogs have always been a major part of my life. I started out with Rottweilers and German Shepherd Dogs, but always had a Boxer as a house pet. My Rotties and Shepherds were true working dogs competing in Obedience, Tracking, and Schutzhund. I have also trained Search and Rescue Dogs, Police Patrol Dogs and Narcotics Detection Dogs. I soon decided to try my hand in the breed ring. I am an All Breed Handler, specializing in Boxers. I also have 20 years experience as a Veterinary Technician. Visit my personal website for more information about me.
We are fortunate to have 2 up and coming very talented Junior Handlers, Cheyenne and Lacy Nichols assist us in handling at shows, both girls have pointed several of our clients dogs and have won Best Of Breeds as well, they both have very good futures in the Dog Show World.
