RECENT & MEMORABLE WINS

He has placed dogs 8 times in the National Brittany All Age Championship. He won it three times, in 1997 with (DC/AFC Tequila's Joker), in 2001 with (FC/AFC Shambo's Dark Shadow) and in 2013 with (FC Sparky's Pairie Wind Gypsy). Three of the dogs he trained won the National Amateur Brittany All Age Championship when run by their owners.

Jim has won the Purina Award (formerly Iams) 4 times. This Award is presented to the top All Age Brittany in the country.

The U.S. Open is the oldest American Field Championship for Brittanys. It is one of the few trials that has an hour qualifying and an hour final. You must run two good hours in a row to win, making it the toughest test Brittanys have. Read here the U.S. Open Brittany Championship article written by David A. Fletcher.
