OUR HANDLING PHILOSOPHY
First and foremost is the health and safety of the dogs in our care.
ABOUT BRENDA AND KELLY
Brenda and Kelly are a mother-daughter team that has enjoyed showing together for more than two decades.
Brenda has been training and exhibiting dogs for over 30 years. In addition to managing a veterinary clinic, she owns her own in-home dog training business, is a CPDT-KA certified trainer, and teaches training classes through the local Park District, a local community center, and through several private doggie daycare and boarding kennels. Brenda has handled dogs in various breeds to obedience titles, conformation titles, rally obedience titles, group placements, top twenty rankings, and more. She is also working towards titling a Pug in the emerging sport of "canine nosework"!
ABOUT TEAM BRENICH
Without the efforts of our assistant Reilly Matelski and associate Riley Mars, our job as handlers would be that much more difficult. Their hard work and desire to learn keeps the set-up running smoothly.
Reilly got her start in Dachshunds and Great Danes with her mother, Amy, and joined Team Brenich in December 2008. She currently resides in Southeastern Wisconsin with her husband and joins us for many of the local shows. She is a quick study, has great hands with the dogs, and we are very lucky to have her working with us!
Riley got her first show dog in 2003, a Cairn Terrier named Zach, though she had been showing for a few years prior to that. Zach and Riley quickly became not only a top Junior Handling pair, but a top Cairn Terrier as well! Living in northwestern Iowa with her husband, Riley doesn't join us as often as we would like for shows, but she is enjoying great successes on her own as a handler as well!
