Billy grew up in Bloomfield, NM with two wonderful sisters and parents. He raised racing Quarter Horses with his Dad for numerous years before moving to Kentucky in 1993 to pursue a career in the Thoroughbred Industry. After years of working hands on with yearlings and researching pedigrees he started his own business creating consignor update books with information specifically geared towards sellers at public auctions in KY, NY, and FL.
Billy met Desmond in 2000 who introduced Billy to the world of Dog Shows. Eager to learn, Billy began assisting professional handlers Amy and Phil Booth, Nicki King and Rindi Gaudet. Handling as well as grooming are his passions. Billy learned how to groom Bouviers with his mentor Norma Smith along with Karan Aurelius – he is learning and loving more each day.
Billy is now an All Breed Professional Handler with a focus on herding breeds.
