Show Handling

Conformation Show Handling
by Georgia and Jack

Attending most shows in the Pacific Northwest

Specializing in Great Danes and other large breeds

Jack and Georgia attend most of the shows in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Specializing in Great Danes, Mastiffs, Ridgebacks and other large breeds, we are available to handle dogs on a "ring ready" basis.  Additionally, we can also transport, carry and board for the owner who is unable to attend shows and wishes to send their dog.

We love showing dogs, and can provide your dog with a fun, positive experience in the ring. We do not handle a large number of dogs, so we can offer personalized service tailored to the needs of you and your dog.

We are well-equipped to transport and care for Danes and other large breeds, and will gladly provide references if requested.  Our crates are "Dane-sized" and dogs travel in the comfort of our Express van or motor home. Boarding, puppy camp, show training and other services are available, please contact us for further information.

Please feel free to contact us to chat about your dogs show career, our handling availability, and what shows we are attending.  We are happy to provide a rate sheet upon request.  We can also provide references and answer any questions you may have about our handling services.

Please see our "Show Photos" page for candid ringside shots of our client dogs, along with other Northwest Dane exhibitors.
