An English Setter Breeder/Owner-Handler, plus the Owners of the Top Ten

Paula Dempsey has been breeding English Setters, with Jim Jannard under the Oakley prefix, for nearly four decades. Senior Editor Christi McDonald asks the successful breeder/owner-handler about her life in dogs and how she gives back to the sport. Find out who inspired Paula to participate in dog shows, and discover her fondness for an extreme sport.

Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler knows that it takes an exceptional dog and a terrifically talented handler to break into the Top 10. Of course, determination and perseverance are required to stay there, and nothing is possible without support from back home. Today Billy acknowledges the dedication of the owners behind the nation’s current top dogs.
