What our clients are saying about Belquest:

" I will be coming next Tuesday. Did great at the West Friendship shows. JJ got two 4 point majors and took breed one day from the puppy classes. With his 5 point major last week he only needs 2 points to finish. Katie took two 4 point majors and Best of Winners 2 days. Katie never dropped her tail and looked happy in the ring. Thanks for all the hard work you have done with my puppies. When I started classes I could not get JJ to walk on the lead. Thanks, Pat"
