"The only way to do great work is to love what you do"-Steve Jobs
The Threlfall family is the third generation to have a passion for the sport of purebred dogs. Evan caught the dog show bug as youngster, watching his parents run their own handling business, who themselves learned the ropes from the late and beloved Forsyths. Evan’s father, Mark, won Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show with the famous English Springer Spaniel "Robert". Evan's mother, Bonnie, has an impressive Best in Show record and many National Specialty Winners, and is also well known for her distinguished Edgewood English Cocker Spaniels. Evan’s parents are now retired from handling and are both well-respected AKC judges.
Both Evan and Stacy apprenticed under many professional handlers in order to perfect their handling skills and grooming techniques. What you see us do in the show ring is just the tip of the iceberg. Critical to our success is the countless hours we spend behind the scenes -- nurturing, conditioning, and building a strong relationship with our dogs in order to maximize their performance in the ring. Simply put, our dedication shows in the results we obtain, as well as the confidence placed in us to care for your family pet. We are lucky to have Amanda McAllister assist us with all of these responsibilities.
We understand that these dogs are pets first and an important part of your family – we take our responsibilities to you and your pet seriously and thank you for trusting us to care for them.
