Showing beautiful dogs has not only been my business, but my passion. I have been involved with conformation ever since I saw my first dog show on TV when I was eight and was hooked since. I am the second generation in AKC dogs, but first to be so involved in Conformation. Starting simply as most kids do, by showing in Junior Showmanship with the family Golden. I was lucky enough to be seen by a Professional Handler who saw my potential.
I worked for several years as an apprentice for Professional Handlers who took me under their mentorship. Many of my skills can be attributed to the people that I have worked and apprenticed under. I am most notably known for my soft handedness with dogs and puppies. I can transform the most timid dog into a confident and happy show dog. I have finished many AKC Grand Champions in most of the groups but I specialize in Sporting, Working, Herding, and Terrier breeds.
Sheaman Kennels is located in Western, Massachusetts in the rural town of Ware. I offer boarding, grooming, and training at my new Kennel Facility to mostly just show clients. Animals are a family affair at our house so we also have a farm full of Show Llamas and our own Breeding Program (www.SheamanFarm.com). I take pride in adhering myself to the AKC Code of Ethics, always presenting a Professional appearance, and displaying Sportsmanshiplike conduct. Each dog's health and welfare are my top priority at all times and I take pleasure showing each dog to their fullest potential in the show ring. Please contact me if you'd like to add your dog to my show string.
