Lynn is a third generation purebred dog breeder and exhibitor. Her parents, now AKC judges, were professional dog handlers and Lynn grew up attending shows with them and learning the finer points of handling and conditioning top show dogs. Lynn started showing dogs, a whippet, at the age of eight. Lynn became a well known and successful professional handler showing most all breeds and specializing in coated breeds. She has been involved in Tibetan Terriers since the early ‘90’s. She won her first Best in Show on a Tibetan Terrier in 1995 with a female from the Barnstorm Tibetan Terrier kennel. That relationship formed a friendship and partnership that continues to this day. Shortly after that Lynn began breeding Tibetan Terriers using the Dzine prefix. She has bred or handled 5 different TTCA National Specialty winners, and 8 different Best in Show Winners. She has also bred or handled multiple #1 TT’s in the US and the # 1 TT in Canada. The Dzine TTs are top winners around the world. While Lynn no longer handles professionally the Dzine Tibetan Terrier breeding program remains. Lynn has always been known for her excellent conditioning and presentation of the Tibetan Terrier.
