Peggy Gutierrez-Otero Podcast and the Buzz About Vizslas
“This hobby has shown me the world,” says Mrs. Peggy Gutierrez-Otero of her experience as an FCI-approved, all-breed judge. In today’s podcast with Pilar Kuhn, the world-traveling officiate talks about the shows – large and small – that have taken her from her home in Mexico to places far afield such as Japan, Australia and South Africa. Although she admits that dog shows vary greatly in their organization around the world, one thing remains constant wherever she goes: “People love dogs.”
