I got my first American Eskimo Dog in 1988 and originally purchased
her ("Cleo") from a pet store as a family pet. This, of course, was before
I knew that buying from a pet store is NOT the smart thing to do. I
quickly registered Cleo with the United Kennel Club (UKC) and also
subscribed to the UKCís magazine Bloodlines. With each issue of the
UKCís Bloodlines Magazine, I would examine with curiosity the
pictures of Eskies that had won at various dog shows throughout the
country. Curiosity eventually got the best of me and I decided to check
out what this conformation showing was all about. I attended a UKC dog
show near my home in Pennsylvania as an observer, I watched and learned
as exhibitors proudly displayed their Eskies for the judges, and I was
hooked. Thinking ďI can do this!Ē I entered the next UKC show in my
area and proudly showed my Eskie to the world. Even though I only got
second place in my class out of only two entries, I was determined to
do whatever it took to become successful in this new found sport. Win or
lose, I quickly realized how much fun showing can be! Eventually, I
contacted a reputable breeder for a "real" show dog and my love of
showing took off from there.
Now as a liscensed UKC All-Breed judge, the sport of showing has slowed down considerably as has my breeding. I do have an occasional litter.
Eros American Eskimos enjoys a very successful show record and works hard to keep a healthy American Eskimo breeding program. We take the responsibility of breeding very seriously. Our selective breeding program is based upon careful research involving several generations of each sire and dam, with improvement of the breed utmost in making our decisions. It is my belief that truly well-bred dogs must not only look beautiful, but must also be able to conform to the established breed standards and be of sound temperament. Eros American Eskimos operates with the highest ethical and moral standards. Each puppy is raised with loving care in my home to ensure proper socialization. Genetic health testing is paramount in any breeding program.
