You’ve been going to dog shows for awhile. Is your dog winning as much as you think he should? Probably not.

“Since entering the program, I have exponentially increased my dog’s group placements from only 3 in 2 years to 24 in just 18 months. These include multiple Group Firsts . . .” Kate F. from WA

How did Kate do this? Instead of just listening or watching, she used interactive techniques and resources available in the Dog Show Mentor program . . . developed by an AKC multi-group judge . . . that create a fun and engaging learning environment.

Here is another member’s testimonial. Mary is a new member who is relatively new to the Sport of Purebred Dogs. She brings a keen and enthusiastic attitude to the group.

“I never imagined the scope of DSM would be so broad . . . I have been consistently and pleasantly surprised, by the variety of perspectives, suggestions and challenges of the group! I am so glad I gave myself this gift.”  Mary M. from CA

And finally, Corrinne started getting Terrier group placements in tough CA competition after a few short months.

“The biggest insight that I had was in a secret weapon session. Lee had some observations about my ring presence. When I realized how important that really was, I committed to making that the number one thing I was going to work on: ring presence to match the strong confidence I have in my dog.” Corrinne M. from CA

Going to dog shows is fun; winning makes them even more fun.

Educational Philosophy



  1. Develop a program where people can jump right in and learn right away, i.e., one that is useful for first-time exhibitors to 30-year people who have been coasting or starving for learning.
  2. Create a rolling program that has structure and flexibility, i.e., an ordered system where people have the option of picking and choosing what interests them.
  3. Provide a safe venue and build community within that venue so people can be candid and learn from each other.
  4. Create rich material presented in small bites.
  5. Make learning fun – lighthearted learning lasts longer.
  6. Interactive webinars allow for questions and create a richer and more engaging learning environment.
  7. Be a mentor who is available for private learning at members’ convenience for those who learn best one-on-one.
