Tam Cordingley speaks for dogs and is never at a loss for words!Ms. Cordingley entered the dog fancy in 1954.  Her first breeds were collies and shelties which she exhibited successfully in both breed and obedience. Active in club work, she helped form the International Australian Shepherd Assn. to seek AKC recognition.


Tam is a retired Animal Shelter employee, boarding kennel operator, Animal Control and State Humane Officer.  She has shown Champions and Obedience title holders in six Groups but is best known for finishing and rehabilitating dogs that were thought to be beyond redemption, one of which went on to become the top dog in his breed.


She is UKC licensed to judge all breeds, was an AKC licensed handler, CSI (Canine Sciences Institute) Instructor,  Behavioral Counselor, and is currently a CGC (AKC) Evaluator.


Above all, she is an avid Fox Terrier fancier who delights in her old dogs. Her homebred Ch. Foxridge Spunk, CD, CG. earned his Certificate of Gameness in one try at 12 years of age.  A successful Real Estate Specialty Broker, Tam is never without a humorous anecdote and a “personal dog” at her side.
