    What are you looking for exactly? Someone to handle your dog at a conformation show? Some other sport? Dog sitting?

    Ah, sorry. I'm of no help - not familiar with ABKC.

    I'm not familiar with ABKC either, but wanted to ask: is there any reason you would be opposed to getting out there and learning to handle the dog in the ring yourself?
    Maybe it's just because I'm young and eager, but I've shown dogs in AKC and I'm learning for ADBA right now, and never took a formal class. Lot of people happy to help a newbie with an interest and a lot of judges willing to laugh off a mistake if you're not in the big times yet (I'm guilty of having taken my dogs the wrong way in the ring, and more recently busting my butt in an outdoor ring).

    And that goes for other activities too. There's no harm in trying. Everyone makes mistakes so don't be afraid to get out there :)

    The Philly area has some great sports opportunities as well (if you are interested). There's a weight pull about 75 mins from the city this Sunday: http://www.pitbull-chat.com/showthread.php/119915-PA-IWPA-Weight-Pull?p=1423684#post1423684
