I was very lucky to meet Peggy Adamson in the early 1960´s at an obedience training class. I was enamored with the beautiful Dobermans she would bring to class each week. Before long, a lifelong friendship was begun as I started to help working her dogs in class. From this I went on to whelping and raising puppies, socializing and training them and keeping many of the older dogs at home while Peggy was traveling.
Peggy was a natural teacher and I was like a sponge, soaking up as much information as I could get. Since then, I have tried to give to others, the opportunity that Peggy gave to me. Dobermans became my world and my life. Besides breeding and training, I became a professional handler in the early 1970´s, showing many other breeds along with Dobermans.
I bred my first litter in 1966 and for a little while used Peggy´s Damasyn prefix. A few years later I became Carosel Dobermans. I have bred over 50 Champions and 10 ROM´s. I have also bred many obedience and agility titled dogs. I believe a Doberman should be able to do it all.
My most well known dog was Ch. Carosel Make My Day, WAC (Basteque). He was a Top Twenty winner, a multiple Group, Specialty and BIS winner and the sire (to date) of 56 American Champions. Ch. Carosel B In A Hurry, CD, ROM was BOS at the DPCA National in 1982 and was a dog that everyone admired for his outstanding true Doberman temperament. Ch. Carosel Mexican Princess CD, ROM, MX, MXJ was High In Trial Agility DPCA National in 1999.
I live in Brooksville, Florida with my daughter Evelyn and a houseful of Carosel Dobermans. I am actively breeding and showing.
