Centerstage PBGV’s acquired our first PBGV in 2000 from Nick Frost. Her name was Centerstage Revue “Daphne” and, because of her, we fell in love with the breed.
Since 2000, I have enjoyed the breeding and showing of PBGV’s. I have been fortunate to receive the mentoring of great breeders, as well as the support of friends and handlers of other breeds. That support, along with a bit of luck, has helped Centerstage PBGV’s produce several champions and a Best Puppy in Show, Best Veteran, and Best Bred By at our PBGV National Specialty Shows.
Centerstage PBGV’s offers handling services, stud dog service, puppies to show and pet homes when available.
I look forward to continued success as I follow my passion for the PBGV’ breed.Please feel free to look through my website.
