About Us


Clint Livingston

Clint Livingston has been involved in dogs all his life and dog shows since the age of 7. He began in obedience, putting a CD on a Rough Collie when he was only 8 years old. His parents bred and raised both German Shepherds and Collies, and owned the #1 Rough Collie in the country in 1979/1980. They also taught obedience classes for over 30 years, which Clint attended and trained in as early as the age of 5. His parents had a UD titled Collie, Danny, that Clint took through all the courses. They were best friends, and served as a pillow whenever he decided to take a nap.

Clint started in Junior Showmanship at the age of 12, and was the #1 Junior in the United States in 1987. That win allowed Clint to represent the United States at Crufts for the International Junior Handler of the Year Competition in 1988. Clint became the first American to win that competiton.

During Clint's junior years, he assisted other professionals. For over 5 years he worked for them learning how to properly care for, dog maintenance and showing of dogs. He did this on the weekends during the school year, and fulltime during his summer vacations. He worked with many breeds from all 7 groups. The education he received was invaluable.

Clint began handling professionally in January of 1989 while attending St. Mary's University. While traveling and on the road, Clint earned a B.S. degree in Biology and Chemistry.

In 1992, Clint was awarded the Kennel Review/Tournament of Champions award for the Best New Handler, the last year such awards were offered until Dogs In Review began awarding them again 4 years ago.
