Handling Services ....presented by Kayleen Klier & Damon Lumpkins
I've been involved in dogs since 1997, when we got our first show dog, Ch. Wayback's String of Pearls. What started as spending time with my husband's family camping at dog shows soon became my new hobby. I had grown up showing Arabian horses since I was 7 yrs old, and really missed doing something competitive.
I love the challenge of taking a dog and making the most of my 2 minutes in the ring. Trying to understand the little things each one needs in order to be presented to its best. Not every dog can be shown the same way. I understand that not everyone likes to show or feels that he or she has what it takes to show their own dog. That is where I think I can be of help. I love to show and have been doing it since 1997. I work with my partner, Damon Lumpkins. He and his wife Sue own Country Star Kennels and have been in dogs over 30 years.
I travel with my own personal dogs, and any client dogs traveling with me are treated just like my own. The comfort and safety of mine, and anyone else's dogs are of paramount importance. Dogs are kenneled in my motor home or Damon's box truck, air conditioned, and spend as much time as possible outside in x-pens. Dogs are never left unsupervised while outside. When dogs are at my home, they are housed in the same conditions as my own personal dogs, inside the house. If requested I can provide references.
