Summer shows are heating up!
Tiffany started showing in the Coton world in 2012, but she is not new to the world of dog showing and breeding. Tiffany began training her first animals at the age of seven. By the age of thirteen, she trained her guinea pigs to roll over, play dead and shake hands. She also taught the family dog to pull a wagon with her baby brother in it.
When Tiffany was fourteen, she met a wonderful lady and dog trainer named Ginny Bruce. Ginny taught Tiffany AKC obedience and scent hurdling. In 1985, Tiffany had the top two 4-H obedience dogs in Arizona and a High in Trial at an ASCA show with a standard poodle. She also became one of six teenagers to train the first Seeing Eye puppies in Arizona.
Now almost thirty years later, Tiffany has trained and taught in Agility, Obedience, and Conformation. She was a board member of Contact Zonies Agility Club, the largest USDAA agility club in Arizona. Tiffany was a member of good standing with the Cavalier Club of Central Arizona, the 2nd largest AKC Cavalier Spaniel Club in the US. Tiffany also worked as a private personal dog trainer in the rescue realm. She co-founded AZ Cavalier Rescue, worked as a foster for both Lucky Star Cavalier Rescue and Soft Coated Wheaten Rescue.
In 2008, she met and purchased her first Coton. At the tender age of twelve weeks, Windsong’s Melody in Motion took a Best In Show in UKC, with good competition, at her first show. Unfortunately Mel’s bite went off, and she was not able to be shown further. Tiffany continued to work and show Cotons with her dear friend Livina Day, of Day Dreaming Cotons, until 2010 when a job change brought her and her family from Arizona out to Norman, Oklahoma.
Tiffany and her family live on ten acres just east of Norman, Oklahoma. Although she enjoys showing her “little white fluffy” dogs, her passion is performance sports and playing out in the fields where her dogs love being dirty little farm dogs.
