McKenna is now 13 years old and been showing dogs for over a year now. She has been "shadowing" Clare for the past couple years and going to conformation practice too. We are excited to see her love for dogs and showing blossom.
McKenna started showing in March 2014. She began her weekend winner her Novice Junior class with competition her first time in the ring. The next day she won her class again. McKenna also competed in a Dachshund Regional Specialty and won Best Junior in Specialty in only her second day in the ring. Her third day she won her class again and moved out of Novice into Open Junior. She will compete in Open Junior until she turns 12 years old.
McKenna has been using Alexas, a black and tan, miniature, smooth dachshund, sent to her by Cyndy Sneff of Dynadaux Kennels in Texas. We are very fortunate to have such a beautiful girl join our family 2014. Alexas is an AKC finished Champion and was a fantastic first dog for McKenna to start showing. Alexas has gone back home to have puppies so McKenna will be showing and training our PWDs now.
McKenna is looking forward to competing in Juniors and hoping to get experience with breeds other than the PWD and Dachshund. We can't wait to see where her efforts take McKenna, she is a very talented handler.
McKenna is also hoping to expand her interests into working venues.
