About Susan Catlin
"The Original" Happy Legs™

Hello, my name is Susan Catlin and I invented Happy Legs™

I thought I would share with you my story of dogs, family and the hobby we all love. Please contact me with yours.

My husband, David and I work in our wood shop every day, hand-crafting each and every Happy Legs™ you receive. David and I have been married 40 years in July and have a wonderful daughter, Jasmine. She was raised in show dogs and continues today with agility and conformation. Along with her husband, Trevor, they have two little girls, Rowen and Averie. Jaz and Trevor own a veterinarian hospital where they help many pets that come into their care.

I am 60 years old and have been showing Rottweilers for 40 years. Our foundation dog was purchased in 1973 and our foundation bitch in 1975. Ch Rosh and Ch Ulti were wonderful companion and conformation dogs and produced several titled puppies for us. Including our first generation champion, Cologne. From these beloved Rottweilers, we have today our 10th generation Rottweilers on the property. Ch Marigold, Robert, RN, Sammie and Ch Jack. From all the dogs thatcame before them, to the present dogs now, their love and devotion have been things dreams are made of.

My foundation Chinese Crested was acquired in 1991 and I have since bred over 25 champions. The one now at my home is the great, great granddaughter of my first Crested. I owner/handled all of these dogs.

My shorthairs are brothers, having just lost their mother in 2013. She was a multi BIS, BISS bitch, Am/Can CH Brushcountrys That My Point. Her son, Am/Can. Ch Brushcountrys Heres My Point was WD and Best in Sweeps at the GSP National and WD/BW at the GSP Canadian National. These dogs were all professionally handled.

Our delightful Wire hair Dachshunds are Canadian bred Ch Victorys First Lady W, a standard bitch. Our boy is mini wire, Ch Stone Valley Hans Dieter. I bred my standard bitch and Jasmine has a girl, Stonehedge Serra Avatar, RA,MX,MXJ, Ch Stonehedge Barnaby Jones, CDX, RE, DA, AXJ, CbC, owned by Dena Hudson is the brother to Serra.

I owner/handled my dogs from the 70's thru the 90's in addition to being a professional handler. Exhibiting in the US and Canada, I handled the #1 Samoyed dog in 1996. Under my guidance he was the multi BIS and BISS winner, Herding tested started, Companion Dog titled and a Canadian Champion.

I am an approved AKC judge of the Working Grp #7095. Presently I need 3 breeds to complete the group. My judging assignments have taken me all over the US, as well as the Philippines, New Zealand, Canada and Jamaica.

I am a lifetime member of the Atlanta Kennel Club, a 36 year member of the American Rottweiler Club and a founding member of the Dogwood Rottweiler Club in Atlanta.

My dogs are all health tested for hips, heart, eyes, elbows and dentition. I personally demand titles on my dogs before I breed them. Working or conformation or both if able. All my puppies are sold on a strict contract with a "buy back" clause assuring the return of my dog if the owner can no longer care for them. My commitment to my breeds and the welfare of any puppy I produce is paramount to me.

So I hope you enjoyed my bio, I had fun writing it.

Let me hear from you and we'll talk.

Happy Showing
