Lynne Skinner

In the ‘80s as I carried my little Samoyed girl to the show ring through pouring rain and mud, I thought, “I must be crazy!” And so this wild ride began. Owning Aussies since 1993, and after over 12 years with the Heart Of New York ASC, I moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 2013 and joined BRASC. I have actively maintained membership and Board positions in several other ASCA affiliates, all breed clubs and National organizations. Approved in 1998, “Aliyah” is a permanently registered kennel name with ASCA and AKC. Showing and titling in both venues, Aliyah proudly has produced Best In Show, Best In Show Specialty, multiple group placing conformation dogs, as well as many advanced titled performance dogs. I am honored to be recognized as an ASCA Provisional Breeder Judge and an AKC Breeder Of Merit. I am dedicated to conserving the versatile Australian Shepherd, with emphasis on temperament and structure. I have further stated my philosophy in my article “I Challenge You”, which, along with a few poems, has been published in several breed and all breed magazines and newsletters.

BRASC is an ASCA affiliate club located in the Maryland/Virginia area. We put on sanctioned Conformation competitions biannually. We welcome new members to assist with and to participate in our activities.
