Jennifer Bell has been involved in dogs all her life and dog shows since the age of 18. She began in field trials with her Labrador Retrievers and put titles on two of them when she was just 12 years old.
Jennifer's first show dog, a Great Dane named K-C was purchased with her first student loan! She attended handling classes and worked very hard to learn to show Great Danes through her next few Danes, BelleRose, Hunter, and Chase.
Jennifer attended Louisiana State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in AgriBusiness Management. She later earned a Master of Business Administration and opened a pet sitting business in the Baton Rouge area.
Although Jennifer showed many dogs for others through the years, she started handling professionally officially in 2008 and finished her first client dog, a Dane named Sonny. Jennifer looks forward to many more years of showing, finishing and specialling dogs of many breeds.
A Message From Jennifer: I consider myself a professional handler of a different style. I am highly interested in the breedings and promotion of my clients and their program. I spend time speaking to my clients about their breeds and their breeding plans. On another note, I take the dogs with me every night at the dog show and NEVER keep them overnight at the show site. I plan
to do this for as long as I am in the handling business. This way, I can watch the dogs closely and ensure their constant care. I drive a 2010 Mercedes Benz Sprinter with a rooftop air and a Yamaha generator with temperature and baby monitors for backup security, where I carry the dogs in secure crates with comfortable bedding, chew bones and their water pails with fresh water. At my home, the dogs are kept in an air conditioned
and heated kennel in runs with soft bedding and fresh water with video cameras watching them at all times even from my cell phone.
|WHAT I OFFER

"Jennifer has done tremendous work and training on my Australian Shepherd, Shorelands Louisiana Iris. I was new to the conformation ring and needed all the help I could find. I gave my 6 month old puppy to Jennifer for 3 weeks of boarding,
show training and handling in the ring. I had done the minimal lead training at that point. Jennifer turned Iris around in a very short time and returned my puppy ready to compete. She took her to puppy training classes, children's parades and had her showing like a champion in the first 3 weeks.
I had Iris very spoiled and was afraid she would be really hard to get to behave in front of a judge. I was shocked when I got her back at how well she did and how bonded she was to Jennifer. I could not be more pleased to recommend Jennifer and all of her animal services to anyone.
Jennifer is truly a gifted and special dog person that Iris and I will LOVE forever."
