We at ReidSan Kennels have
established a team with a wealth of
knowledge and experience.
The ReidSan team will be exhibiting
dogs through out the United States
and in Canada during the summer
The ReidSan team will provide
quality care training and exhibiting
of your dog. We believe that your
dog should enjoy the shows and look
the part . When your dog is not
being shown he is in a true
conditioning program being road
worked, groomed, developing
confidence through our agility
course located in our 6.5 acre pecan
When thinking of sending your dog to
be handled in-conformation or
obedience, think ReidSan.
Westminster Dog Show
Well, I could tell you that I was born and
raised in Miami Fla. ,was in the U.S. Army
for 21 years , a Paratrooper and Jungle
Expert , developed and taught the first
Emergency Medical Services program for the
82nd Division and Fayetteville Technical
Institute , was a hemodialysis practitioner
developing hospital units in the army and
civilian community , and finished my
military career as supervisor for Maternal
Child Health..... But, I'm sure that would
not interest you. So, I'll tell you the
following. I've always had a great love and
respect for animals and in particular dogs.
I did not come from a family of dog fanciers
and I enjoy a good mix breed dog as well as
pure bred. What I really like to do is work
I began my formal tutelage in 1970 with a
Ms. Jaima Youngblood, who taught me basic
behavior, training and handling of Doberman
Pinchers (I did my first Novice A, dog that
year. Since then I've trained with Walter
Hoffman of Germany (Schutzhund) Henk Harmers
and Mrs. Cor Valentijn of the Netherlands
(learning the Bouvier), Poco Rivera (Dept .
of Defense - Bomb detection for the Olympic
Korea 1986) just to name a few. I even got
off a bus once to watch a man train his dog
in a park, and I still use some of his
I strongly believe in obedience training for
dogs whether he is titled or not. We have
duel titled many dog and have accomplished
this while showing in the conformation.
During the months of Jan . 1997 and July
1997. I have duel titled five Bouviers
conformation and obedience, one Wolf Hound
and a Rottweiler. I also had the first
Bouvier Best in Show High in Trial (same
show) and High Aggregate score in Canada.
It should be clear that I feel that a dog
should be a useful member of the family.
Many of my personal and clients show dogs
are personal protection trained by me. My
definition of a true show dog is one that
has the conformation, temperament and has
the ability to do the work it was bred for.
Of all the experiences in my life time I
find showing a dog the most gratifying,
challenging and the most intense.
Since 1984, I've traveled to Europe yearly
searching for quality Bouviers and sometimes
Rottweiler, German Shepherds and Malonois.
I've developed strong ties with many of the
breeders who in turn have visited my family.
We have maintained quality Bouviers that
also function as a true family , dog
companion and protector. Our dogs are medium
sized, short backed, coby , correct coat,
solid in conformation and working ability.
I'm proud that we have been able to furnish
quality dogs that do more than just "left
hand circles" (conformation).
I have also developed excellent rapport with
breeders in the United Stated and can obtain
that hard to get show dog. The one that is
not seen by the general show person. So if
you are in the market for a great puppy or a
champion special, whether it's a Bouvier,
Boxer, Rottweiler, Doberman Pincher, Great
Dane, German Shepherd (American or German
standards), Bullmastiff, Akita, Saint
Bernard, Miniature Schnauzer, Welsh Terrier,
Smooth Fox Terrier, English Setter or Irish
Wolfhound. I can probably obtain it for you.
These are the breeds that I've shown, and or
