Wendy Pittenger | Grand River Kennel Club Secretary

Wendy is passionate about dog shows, Cairn Terriers and baking. She has owned Cairn Terriers for approximately 30 years but didn't get the dog show 'bug' until 2016 when her current Cairn breeder asker her to "come help her out at a show". She and her husband, Michael, have been hooked ever since with Wendy and occasionally Michael, having offically been in the show ring as owner-handlers since 2019. As staunch supporters of their beloved breed, Wendy & Michael are also current members of The Cairn Terrier Club Of America. 

As members of the Grand River Kennel Club, Wendy and Michael both enjoy working behind the scenes of the Regatta Classic Dog Show, assisting with set-up through take-down and everything in between. For Wendy, dog shows are a FUN way to meet new friends with similiar interests and reconnect with old friends, promoting not only the importance of purebreed dogs but also fostering appreciation and respect for the entire dog show community. 

And yes, homemade baked goods - especially her Empire Biscuits (Always Best In Show) - find their way to each and every show to be shared with our dog show family and friends!
