About: Laura Reeves PHA

Laura Reeves PHA

Our family always had dogs. Mutt dogs, purebred dogs, but always dogs. I grew up with dogs everywhere. My mother eventually enrolled me in dog care 4-H because I was “shy and retiring and lacked people skills”….. I am the living testimonial to the success of the 4-H program! I continued into AKC shows as my family transitioned from “dogs” to the wonderful world of Purebred Dogs. I showed all of our family dogs in conformation and participated in Junior Showmanship competition. I went to college, earned a degree and worked as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer. Today, I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and a member of the Professional Handlers Association.

Ours is a story to which every single dog lover can relate. Either you have lost a dog or you live in perpetual fear of the day it happens to you. TiMI, the light of my life and last year’s #1 GWP, had gone to visit my friend and Spinone client in Carson City, NV Continue Reading

As the Wheels Turn – The Final Quarter

We’re winding down the year. Plans are being made for Nationals and Eukanuba and the Garden. The weather is, in most places, starting to cool off. We’ve reached my favorite season. Fall has arrived, or at least it’s really, really close! Warm, pleasant days. Cool, crisp nights. Bird dogs get tuned up. Hound dogs start Continue Reading

As the Wheels Turn – What is Your Personal Best?

I have learned, the hard way, that nearly everything in life boils down to one simple maxim: “All you can do is the very best you can do with what you have to work with…” This grammatically challenged one-liner serves as a reminder to myself or others, nearly every day. It applies to dogs, relationships, Continue Reading
