    Dog Shows

      My journey at the dog show world started when I was the age of sixteen  working at the world famous  terrier breeder, Victor Malzoni Jr, of the Hampton Court kennel located on Itatiba - SP- BR  where I worked for two years as a groomer assistant and could learn a lot about handstripping and handling.   Having the international all breed judge Mario Duarte as my mentor I had the opportunity on having grooming classes with the world famous terrier handler Gabriel Rangel, the wire fox terrier breeder and handler Santiago Pinto and others.
