September 2016

With October nearly approaching the German shepherd Nationals will be taking place soon. I wanted to give a SHOUT out to TWO sweet friends and AWESOME dog owners/handlers/trainers. Both Kathy Woodbury and Jennifer Patton are going to Nationals to receive their PAM awards. This stands for Performance Award of Merit. Here is a link that tells more about it.…/g…/82-performance-award-of-merit-pam

A dog has MANY things to accomplish to receive this, and for them to be representing “Tidmores Rising Star” kennel; I just cannot EXPRESS the thrill it is as a breeder!!! Hoping they do well at Nationals, but mostly have fun and THANK YOU both for ALL your hard work and dedication!!
