Joyce M. Latham began dog training in AKC obedience back in the 1980s with a wonderful “goose pit” yellow Labrador from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Brandy.  Joyce promised Brandy that if she earned her CD in obedience they would start training for hunt tests.  Joyce has since titled Labradors and FCRs in hunt tests, obedience, tracking, conformation, rally, and agility.  For her it is all about spending quality time with the dog.  Her three current companions are Pippin, an FCR, Corky, a yellow lab, and a what-was-I-thinking! FCR puppy named Sonnet.
