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.

Fact and Fiction in Purebred Dogs

I was once a member of PeTA. Yes, you heard me right. I was in college and thought bludgeoning baby seals for fur coats and pouring acid in little bunnies’ eyes to test cosmetics was bad. I thought these were people trying to help animals. I was 19. I thought drinking boiler-makers all night at college frat Continue Reading
