My Name is Jeri Russell El Dissi. My brother Charlie and I grew up in Sussex, Wisconsin on a game farm with a large variety of wild animals and with my parents Bob and Nancy Russell who raised the top producing kennel of Alaskan Malamutes in the world. " Storm Kloud" Alaskan Malamutes.
As I was growing up I knew I loved animals and loved to work with them. I started showing dogs in 1968 and have loved it ever since. I later married in my 20's my currant Husband Sa'd El Dissi. We have two children Adam and Ice' all grown up now. I had to cut back on my handling as we raised our family but, with the help, and love of my husband, I was able to continue my love of handling. We owned a pet supply business in Waukesha, Wisconsin for almost 30 years, LDC Professional pet products that we closed in 2015.
I run training classes and work as a Professional handler. Please contact me if you are interested in either. firstname.lastname@example.org
As any good handler, we need help with our dogs at shows. I am lucky enough to have my Good friend Sabrina Czaraparta and my Sister in law Rania El Dissi and Kevin Gasper a Rising young handler to help me to handle with conflicts. Thank you, all for your help. A big thank you to all my clients and friends who allow me to show their wonderful dogs.
Please enjoy the photos. They are a work in progress, and just a taste of the dogs I have handled over the past 50 years.
