Saturday  Conformation Judge:

Casey Steiner

My family has always had purebred dogs. My father hunted with German Shorthair Pointers and our Border Collie herded four children for my mother. My mother also had Wire Fox Terriers and Miniature Bull Terriers which were shown in conformation. My first dog was a German Shepherd. I got my first Irish Wolfhound in 1990 and I ended up handling dogs, for almost ten years, for the woman I got my first IW from. I have shown IWs all over the United States and I showed an IW in Dublin, Ireland and a whippet in the veteran class at Crufts in England. I have been a Board Member and Vice President for the Irish Wolfhound Club of America. I have also judged Sweepstakes at 3 regional Irish Wolfhound Specialties and Sweepstakes at a regional Sheltie Specialty. I have over 30 champion IWs and 5 GCHs. I have bred 8 IW litters and the last was a litter of 16.

My first whippet came from Scotland, UK in the late 90s. My friend was the secretary of the Whippet breed club at the time and sent me a dog that was too big for Europe, but he proved to be too small for conformation in the West Coast of the US! We lost “Eddie” in 2014 and I got my 2nd whippet in July of 2014. Kenny was a CH at 18 months, all owner handled. I am currently running and showing a 2.5 year old female whippet.
