 Show Dogs brought us together and showing dogs was our career for 30+ years. Mark and Sally George were nationally known and respected professional dog handlers. We were American Kennel Club Registered Handlers and are seen at many of the biggest and most competitive shows in the country including National Specialties, Montgomery County Kennel Club All Terrier Show, Westminster Kennel Club, Eukanuba Invitational to name a few.  We have now retired from traveling the country to show dogs, and are devoting all our time and attention to our Sonoma Pet Resort, bringing the finest care and grooming to our clients here. Sally has begun judging at AKC events, and we are raising our family here in Sonoma. 

Things to think about when hiring a handler

  • What sort of care and facilities does he/she offer?
  • Are his/her dogs presented in a competitive manner at the shows?
  • Can he transport your dogs in a safe and comfortable way?
  • Can you communicate with this person?
  • What are your hopes and expectations for your dog or breeding program?
