Kim Petrone

... began training dogs in 1989 with Jack Russell Terriers. This was before JRTs were AKC recognized, and the only place to trial her dogs was with the Australian Shepherd Club of America. She soon determined that the Aussie

    was a better fit for her young family, and After All Australian Shepherds

          was launched. Janet currently judges conformation, obedience, and

            rally for the Australian Shepherd Club of America and has had a

            life-long dream of working with dogs as a career. Thanks to Kim and

            the opportunity at Carolina Canine College, that dream seems

             achievable! Stay tuned!
