Carova Girls

New  Grand Champion !!!  

After many years of success with Carova boys, we  are excited to announce that “Cooper ” became the first Carova girl to earn a GCH title.

 I thank Vicky Shields for her commitment and  the love that she shows Cooper every single day.   Cooper loves showing and  it was a joy to watch her with her handler Ryan Dillman.  Cooper just had a  beautiful litter and we hope her puppies will shine in the ring as Cooper did.
