Karen Mancini, the former owner of the K-9 Connection, has been sharing her life with giant schnauzers since 1989. Breeding, training and showing Giants has been her passion. Her Giants have been nationally ranked, multiple BIS and HIT dogs. GCH Kenro’s Keeping Time,Tempo, won the breed at Westminster in 2006 and 2008 and was the #1 Conformation Giant Schauzer. Her son, G CHKenro’s Stealing Time CDX CA OAP OJP, Reo, went on to a Grand Champion and HIT at the National Specialty in 2014. CH Kenro’s Man of the Hour UDX, BN was the #1 Obedience Giant Schnauzer nationally for multiple years. They were invited and competed at the Eukanuba Obedience Invitational in 2006 and 2007. Her GS Rave earned her UD and her CH Border Collie, Switch, was a UD and agility dog, as well as both being the loves of her life. Deciding to downsize, Karen is now competing with her Affenpinscher, Bug-Z, who, so far, has his breed championship and AXP and AXJ and is training for obedience. Karen enjoys training and building relationships with her dogs and working with others to do the same.
