Jennifer began her career in dogs at an early age of fourteen grooming and training Yorkshire Terriers for Sandy Spector. She was also trained by the Monks of New Skete by Brother Jobe in hand signal obedience training and by Michael Canalizo in conformation.
In 1987 her husband was the one who introduced her to Mastiffs, since her family came from German Shepards, Siberian Huskies, Great Pyrenees and Yorkshire Terriers. Jennifer told him that they were only going to look, so her husband took her to Deer Run Kennels. Well, that all changed after seeing all these magnificent dogs. Tobin Jackson took them into a waiting room and there is where they saw her. She was beautiful! This fat rollie pollie mastiff puppy covered in mud came barreling in and headed straight for Jennifer. At the time, she was wearing a white jogging outfit, need I say more. Well, her white pants had these big muddy paws all over her, and at that moment she fell in love and turned around and said “They will take her."
She did not show back then, however Tobin Jackson of Deer Run Kennels convinced her to show her, and Bucks County Kennel Club was her first show and she was hooked.
Well, the rest is history.
