MR. DOUGLAS R. HOLLOWAY, Jr. of Newark, DE grew up receiving an education in dogs from his parents, who were in the professional handling and boarding business. He worked for a number of top professional handlers and eventually became a licensed handler himself in the early 1970’s. He began his own handling and boarding business in 1976. He handled many top winners in his professional career, including the Standard Schnauzer Ch. Parsifal Di Casa Netzer, who was the number one dog all-breeds in 1996 and captured Best in Show at Westminster in 1997. Today, continuing his family tradition, he and his wife own and operate a boarding and grooming kennel. He is approved to judge the Sporting and Working groups and Best in Show. This is his second Westminster assignment.
