Lindsay’s involvement in purebred dogs began early in life. Her mother bred Collies under the “Jetstream” prefix, and Lindsay fell in love with the sport as a second-generation dog person.
Her career in AKC dog shows started early when she won her first Group win at the age of 7 with her Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, CH. Cumberland Pool of Jetstream. She then guided her first Bred-By Toller champion, CH. Jetstream’s Sit Up & Take Notice, to #2 Toller in 2008, taking an Award of Merit and Best Bred-By Exhibitor awards at the 2008 Eukanuba Dog Show.
In 2010, Lindsay acquired her first Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Waybroke Broxden Dress Envy, from breeder Amy Rodrigues and began her love affair with Smooths. Since then, Lindsay has bred, owned, and handled Smooths with Andrea Curran under the “Decorum” prefix, and together have had top winners at Montgomery County K.C., multiple Best in Speciality Show winners, and an all-breed Best in Show Winner, BIS/BISS CH. Decorum Spot On “London.”
Lindsay has had many outstanding mentors throughout her career and has had the pleasure of learning from numerous top all-breed handlers. Since 2014, she’s worked with Jennifer Hoffmann (Forever Golden Retrievers), breeding and handling Golden Retrievers.
Lindsay is well-known in the dog world for her web design skills. She’s built websites for many breeders and breed clubs, including The American Fox Terrier Club. She has long been on our “dream team” list, and we are thrilled for her to join the Better Breeder Institute as our Senior Website Designer. We are excited to put her skills to work serving conservationist dog breeders.
