Handling by Brittany
Brittany Carella began showing dogs for her mother Kathy at the age of 6. The Carella family had bred and shown Dandie Dinmont Terriers at the time. Brittany enjoyed the challenge of working with the stubborn mighty breed and realized that handling was becoming a great passion for her. At the age of 12, Brittany was introduced to Junior Showmanship. In Canada, Junior Handlers are allowed to compete with any breed provided that it is entered on the day of the show. Taking advantage of this rule, she branched out to learn and compete with various breeds in all 7 Groups. In 2005, Brittany had decided to introduce a new breed to the family and acquired her first Pharaoh Hound- Ch. XO's Pure Energy, an import from Holland.
Brittany was incredibly successful in Junior Showmanship. In 2008 she won the Zone 4A Regional Zone Finals with her own bred Pharaoh Hound, Ch. Osiris Ghost Rider, and went on to placing 4th at the Canadian Junior Handling Nationals in Montreal, Quebec.
In 2009 Brittany had again won the Zone 4A Regional Zone Finals with Pharaoh Hound, Osiris She's A Showgirl.
In December of 2009, Brittany had accomplished what all Junior Handlers aspire to- winning the Canadian Junior Handling National Finals! She had earned the title of "Top Canadian Junior Handler" and went on to representing Canada at the World Junior Handling Finals at Crufts in Birmingham, England in March 2010.
Brittany has handled many Pharaoh Hounds to Top Dog status. She has handled the #1 Pharaoh Hound since 2005. She is currently breeding and showing Canada's Top Pharaoh Hounds.
As a student becoming a Registered Nurse, Brittany cannot fulfill a full show schedule. Attending to shows in Ontario, Quebec and the USA- Brittany welcomes any handling requests.
