I have been involved with dogs all my life. I started training and showing my own dogs at obedience trials in 1974. I moved to Vermont in 1978 to work at Seaward Kennel in Pawlet, which at that time was the largest and oldest Newfoundland kennel in the country. From 1983 until 1988, I had my own (conventional) boarding kennel, first in Pawlet and then here in Middletown Springs. I showed, trained, and occasionally bred my own dogs, including Siberian huskies, Kuvaszok, Scottish deerhounds, and, since 1990, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I have extensive experience living with and supervising multiple dogs. I am fully insured.
