Perry’s passion for Arabians actually started with Quarter Horses. While on a trip to Florida to study Quarter Horses, the Arabians caught his attention. His first Arabian was Amber Gold (pictured below) a beautiful, accomplished, mare Perry purchased for his birthday. The lovely animal became his riding mare, both in team sorting and western pleasure. From that time on, Perry was hooked on Arabians and dedicated his eye and skills to developing a world class breeding program.
Perry’s next addition came from Shada Arabian Sanction, where he purchased a beautiful Bay Mare named Kousiebella. This was the real beginning of his breeding and raising adventure. He then went on to add additional mares to his program and strives each breeding season to find the appropriate crosses for them, in order to produce both foals that can win in halter and succeed in the performance arena as well.
For over 20 years, Perry Payson and his team have championed over 500 dogs and bitches, campaigned over 20 dogs to becoming #1 in AKC rankings, and have bred and co-bred some of the finest show dogs in AKC history. Whether presenting a dog for championship or campaigning to top rankings, Perry and his Team are dedicated to the TOTAL well being of your dog.
Perry Payson’s handling services is structured to enable us to provide exceptional care, safe transportation, and expert show preparation so that upon presentation of your dog or bitch they are at their best from the very first show to their last. We pride ourselves in maintaining the total well being of our family of show dogs and understand their needs through each age of development. We have a kind and gentle approach to all of our dogs and understand that an animal’s happiness and well being is the single most important factor to a successful show career.
The boarding facility that we offer is top-of-the-line. When the dogs are not on the road showing, they live in my home. We do not believe in “kennel living”. Situated in a cul-de-sac, the 3 acres of level manicured lawn and mature shade trees is surrounded by a 5 foot heavy gauged fence, providing a very peaceful and safe environment for our dogs to run freely, lounge, nap, play, and basically be dogs. Our dogs are never left un-attended. Our team consists of some of the best assistant handlers in this profession. This enables us the ability to provide 24 hour supervision while your dog is on our care.
While on the road the dogs will travel in our dual air-conditioned Dodge Sprinter. This van has secured crates that can accommodate the largest to the smallest of breeds. We stop often while on the road and each dog is exercised, allowed to stretch and get some fresh air. This is paramount to ensure a balanced and happy dog. We travel with a smaller number of dogs than other handlers so that each is given the attention and care that is needed. Once at our destination our dogs are set-up in our air-conditioned hotel rooms. They are never left in the van. Safety and comfort is top priority.
