I offer litter evaluations and gradings for most AKC breeds.
Local breeders only for in-person evaluations. Can also do evaluations via emailed photos and/or videos. 8 weeks is preferred age for most evaluations, depending on breed and line.
I offer private or small group conformation classes for those looking to learn how to handle their own dog in the conformation ring. Students learn canine structure, correct breed grooming and presentation, the importance of conditioning, training, show ring etiquette and routines, etc.
There is no miminum age for handlers, junior handlers are encouraged!
Please contact me for a current show schedule and contract. My show schedule is not made public in order to ensure the privacy of my clients.

Show expenses will be divided equally between each dog at each particular show/show weekend. This expense only applies to dogs carried to the show by the handler, or dogs staying with the handler for the show weekend. Chargeable expenses can include gasoline, hotel costs, and parking.
Safety and well being of the dog is of utmost importance. Dogs are never left at the show site, they stay safe and sound in the hotel room with me and are always walked on lead and supervised. Each dog gets plenty of TLC and one on one playtime and attention.
Owner of dog is responsible for all entries, unless otherwise agreed upon and confirmed before closing date.
Please include my agent number on all your entries for dogs you wish to have me handle. My Onofrio agent number is 6591.
All fees are to be paid in full at the end of each show circuit. Interest will be charged for all overdue balances after 30 days.
