Frank started showing dogs in 1983...36 years ago. His first BIS winner was a bred-by Ridgeback bitch, Ch. Crescents All Fired Up, who went on to become the top winning bitch of all time. After Strut came Correy, Ch. Filmakers Never Surrender. Correy tripled the breed record for Best In Shows with twenty-eight.
Frank has shown more BIS winning Rhodesian Ridgebacks to more BIS's than any one else.
