Our story begins a little more than 30 years ago when we brought home our
first Saint Bernard,
Brandy. Immediately we fell in love with this breed.
After learning more about this breed, we decided to
expand our little family and included more Saints to the clan. From this
moment on, fate continued to point us in the direction of our
passion for this wonderful breed. As a child I had shown my Scottish
Terrier, named Dolly at 4-H and AKC Dog Shows in Jr. Handling, Conformation and Obedience.
With the childhood
experiences of showing I decided I wanted to show 'quality' Saints. Over the years our Saints have won numerous awards and honors
that showcase this fine breed. Presently we
have ten Saints that reside with us. Six of which are Champions and 2 are major pointed. We
have had a few more Champions that are now at the Rainbow Bridge. There
are also some youngsters here that will be seeing the show ring soon.
I am currently a member of St Bernard Club of America. Additionally I have entered our Saints in AKC Weight Pulling.
My dogs and I also attend weekly dog training classes in obedience and
conformation at Communicate and Play in
Hamburg, New York. John and I have attended
numerous lectures and training seminars on the breed, history,
reproduction, canine health and nutrition, behavioral and breed conformation.
We have attended over 10 of the Saint Bernard Club of America's National Shows.
Our other passion is
riding our motorcycles. What else....Harley Davidson...American Made.
