Practicing with my Barbet Junior Handler
Fia is one of our puppies from this spring's Claire x Thunus litter and her 11 year old owner, Kate, has been working very hard learning how to handle her for conformation competition. We've been meeting up at South Park, and Kate works with her own puppy as well as Solene. It's a lot easier for Kate to concentrate on learning when working with a settled, mature dog. This helps her understand what Fia needs to be able to eventually do. For now, we are happy with a little less attention from Fia and are having fun. Kate is a model student!
