Patrice brought Jake home in 2009 and set on to her career in the dog show world. Wendy took Patrice under her wing and mentored her in the world of standard long haired dachshunds. Patrice and Wendy's friendship grew and soon Wendy included Patrice in her breeding program and Serenity's EAST was born. Patrice has been a dachshund parent since 2003 but never competed in the show world. Since the birth of Serenity's EAST Patrice has gained Jake's Bench Championship, his grand championship, field championship, rally novice title and junior earthdog title. These titles made Jake eligible for the DCA Versatility Certificate. Patrice has found her foundation bitch, GCH DC Stardust N Windrose Enchanted Duchess of Serenity, Fergie, and bred her to Jake in 2015. The litter resulted in all boys. Patrice is working to show several of the boys to their bench championship. Patrice will also be working on several other titles for Fergie.
Patrice is a field trial and earthdog judge and is licensed to do Canine Good Citizen test.
