A little about our start in AKC show dog breeding.................I am Brianne Slade and I breed Trezlar Whippets. When I first met my husband, David Slade, in Summer of 1997 his mother had just purchased her first show dog. It was a Standard Poodle named Lady. It seemed almost fate, for I have been showing dogs my entire life. My parents are dog breeders and have multiple AKC Best-In-Show winning and AKC National Specialty Best-In-Show winning Tibetan Terriers and Petit Basset Griffin Vendeens. Growing up was filled with long fun trips to dog shows, staying up late watching puppies born, playing with happy litters and going to sleep every night with a dog in my bed. My Mom and Gary gave me a precious gift, the love of dogs and the knowledge to breed and show them, and for that I will be forevr grateful. My life has been filled with handling, grooming, breeding and especially loving and owning dogs. Meeting my amazing husband Dave and his wonderful mother Virginia was a turning point for my life, it was then that I began the breeding lines I still continue today. We all have such a strong bond over our love of dogs. We have devoted large parts of our lives to our Stunning Standard Poodles and our smart and sweet Whippets. We produce high quality, competitive AKC show dogs, although our lines are competitive in the show ring, we love and adore the wonderful pet homes that we find for our loving dogs as well.
