Her mom made the “mistake” of taking Gwen to a dog show when she was nine years old. That was it.Gwen volunteered at a local veterinary for three years before acquiring her first show dog, an Irish Setter, which she showed to his championship.She competed in junior showmanship where she met Kent, and for ten years she apprenticed under some of the top handlers in the country.After their marriage, she and Kent began showing together professionally.Along with the Number 4 Wheaten Terrier in 2004, Gwen handled the country’s Number 5 Irish Setter in 2009, along with many other champions.In 2010, she handled Ch. Maxwell’s Mr. Cruise, better known as “Tom” Kent’s Norfolk Terrier, to Best of Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club showin New York City.  In addition, Gwen was honored as one of Rockford’s” Top 40 Leaders Under 40” in 2010. Education — for herself, her staff and customers — is Gwen’s first love.The new love in her life is her son, Luke.
