Shows, Events, Handling
Professional Presentation, Black Knight Style!
Some of our prior dogs and handling clients. We no longer accept paid handling clients. If you are new exhibitor and need help learning the ropes, please ask- we're happy to help at no charge. Look for our set up at events for hands on instruction in ring etiquiette, handling tips, grooming and getting to know how to work as a team with your dog.
yes, all you old friends still get a nod when you get stuck in a ring and need a hand :) this is a community :) love you guys!
Group 3 placement with veteran powerhouse M-BISS CH RanMor's Sky Writer of Akiko AOM CGC "Mochi" at Tri Valley Working Group. This gentle giant is one of the sweetest boys I've ever had the pleasure to work with.
Release the hounds! Another BOB for CH Barley the Otterhound!
Danni and Ranger

CH Sumo is a Timbersky dog owned by Julie Buckler (Reno NV). Thanks for trusting me with your baby, Julie!
Danni and Max
Owned by Clu Carradine, Alta Samoyeds CA. Max has a great Sammy-Spirit, playful and energetic. We love working with Samoyeds, and Max is one of my favorites!
CH Yakedo's Driving Force
Cami needed significant work to overcome anxiety issues- and once she had a trusting relationship with us and saw how much fun being a show dog could be, she was on board 100%!
Photos of more BK dogs coming soon!
CH Yakedo's Pave The Way, affectionately known as Blacktop. Blacktop's saga is best told by his breeders; he is a true BK Success Story. Ch Blacktop will return to the occasionally as a special handled exclusively by Black Knight.
I love you B!
* B is for BEST! As in Best Veteran! At almost 9 years old, Blacktop decided to strut his stuff at the Enumclaw Akita Specialties and all breed shows, taking Best veteran wins at all four and stunning the crowd with his undeniable breed type and stong, flawless movement. Watching spectators' jaws hitting the ground, and frantic fumbling for catalogs to whispers of "WHO IS THAT DOG?!?!" while he hammed it up for the kiddies brought tears to my eyes. B has such a wonderful personality and was happy to be back in the show ring.
Yakedo's Storm Tracker- Doppler returned to Black Knight to finish his championship and stood at 7 pts when tragedy struck. This incredible young male was taken from us March 25. Doppler's playful spirit and endles smiles will be greatly missed. Love you, Dopplehead, and miss you more than I can say.
