Everett teen dog trainer heading to Westminster

EVERETT (AP) — An Everett teen has been invited to attend the Westminster Dog Show in February with two dogs.

Eighteen-year-old Anna Pearson has been participating in dog shows since she was a toddler, The Daily Herald reported in Monday’s newspaper.

The recent high-school graduate will bring Oscar, a 5-year-old Chinook sled dog, and her Australian shepherd, Promise, to Westminster in New York.

With Promise, she will compete  in the junior showmanship category. Oscar will be competing in his breed, which is a relatively rare sled dog.

Pearson says the competition with Promise is focused on how the handler presents the dog. With Oscar, it’s all about him.
