Doug Johnson

I am a retired college administrator and educator and enjoying the time to show dogs and work in the garden .I have been involved in the sport of showing dogs since 1967, having started with miniature poodles. Together with my husband, Randy Winters, we have shown and/or bred over one hundred poodles in both the toy and miniature varieties. We also bred and showed many Shih Tzu, became an ROM breeder in this lovely breed. In 1989 we got our first Pekingese from a well-known breeder in the northwest and have gone on to have bred more than 130 champion Pekingese, including the first, second, and fourth Grand Champions in the breed history. We have also bred and/or shown eleven multiple best in show winners in both the US and Mexico. We have the distinction of having bred and shown the first Veteran to win the Pekingese Club of America National Specialty under noted judge Edd Biven. In 2017 our home-bred boy won Best in Show at the  Champion of Champions of the Americas in Mexico City, having to win under ten different judges. This is the most prestigious FCI show in the western hemisphere.
