Christine started showing dogs when she was in fifth grade, showing Afghan Hounds and Salukis with the breeder of her mom’s dogs. This was when she learned to groom for dog shows and developed her handling skills. Over the years, she grew up working with various dog breeds, including cross-bred dogs.
In 2011, Christine went to grooming school to get certified and work professionally. The following year, she obtained her handler agent number, allowing her to show dogs professionally. Through the years, she has shown and competed in dog sports, such as Confirmation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, and Barn Hunting.
Christine continues to show dogs and do pet/show styling. She also attends annual seminars to stay updated about new trends and techniques for pet styling. She also is continuing her education for handling and dog training certifications through the Victoria Stillwell Academy. Her goals are to mentor grooming students to improve their knowledge in skin and coat care and proper, safe, and positive dog handling.
