About Me

Ania Romano Kelly

    Dogs have been a major part of my life since the day I was born.  I am a third generation Vizsla breeder and dog sport enthusiast. My grandmother began breeding vizslas in the 1980's, and naturally my mother followed in her footsteps. After attending my first dog show, I knew showing dogs would be a major part of my life. From a young age, I knew I wanted to turn my passion for the sport and love for dogs into my profession. I dedicated myself to learning the best techniques and care for each breed's unique qualities. I have apprenticed under some of the sport's top handlers for over a decade, Including Andy Linton, Michael and Michelle Scott, Greg Strong, and Tracy Szaras to name a few.  I utilize the invaluable knowledge I learned from them collectively to help my clients reach their full potential. I am proud to be a member of the AKC Registered Handler's program, which demonstrates to current and prospective clients that I am held to a higher standard through my adherence to the program's Code of Ethics; and meet the facility, vehicle, and equipment criteria for membership. Above all else, the happiness and well-being of each and every dog in my care is my utmost priority.

My most notable accomplishments include: 

  • Multiple Best in show wins 

  • At least 1 group win from each of the 7 groups

  • Multiple group placements in each of the 7 groups
