We met Perry in 2003 in Albuquerque, NM. My husband and I own our own training center. We show and train National Level Arabian Halter horses. Perry, who loves Arabians, was at the show and was introduced to us by one of our clients who had show horses and show dogs. She introduced Perry to us by saying “This is the TOP Rottweiler handler in the country! If you ever want to get another Rottweiler and show, Perry is your man!” I never forgot that. When our Rottweiler passed away and we later were ready for a new dog, we immediately contacted Perry. He was so kind and supportive about the loss of my wonderful companion. He listened to me describe our family, our son who was 3 years old at the time, our cats, horses and lifestyle. He took great care in searching for the perfect fit for our family and lifestyle. He found a wonderful Rottweiler male who was a perfect fit for us. This Rottie was a beautiful show quality male, with an incredible pedigree and above all else had a great disposition.
Perry personally delivered him to us. He was everything Perry said he would be and he instantly fit in our family. We had him for about eight months and then sent him to Perry to show and finish for us. Perry had him for about seven weeks and finished him for us and won a BIG Specialty. What a dream! We were so happy and thrilled. When Rico came back home, his coat was fantastic, his weight and condition were just incredible. We show and train some of the top Arabian horses in the country, so we know what a conditioned and groomed animal looks like. We were so impressed with the work Perry had put into our dog and the conditioning and care that he received.
Perry did not see Rico for about seven months. On his was to another dog show he came through Arizona and stopped to see us and Rico. Rico, after not seeing Perry for all of that time and again Perry only had him for about seven weeks, was so happy and excited to see Perry he could hardly contain himself. He never was like this with anyone outside of our family. I know how wonderful Perry was to him and Rico remembered too. To this day, three years later, Rico is still crazy about Perry and seeing him sends him in to a happy dog frenzy.
There is NO ONE else we would ever consider using for showing or choosing a dog for us except Perry. He is fantastic, a truly incredible handler, with integrity, honesty and amazing knowledge and experience that cannot be surpassed. He has a gift with these animals and it shows in the loving way he cares for them and the way they respond to him. We are proud and honored to know him and recommend him. He is simply the BEST.
