The Competitive Canine of the Carolinas is edited, produced, and published by Susan M. Young, Sterling Real Estate Partners (with the help and support of her wonderful husband!). Why is a Realtor publishing a dog training newsletter? Because I cherish my friends and training companions and I heard a need for a publication such as this. This is my gift to you. Enjoy!
