Christina Potter at 2016 Westminster Dog Show Preview

Christina Potter, author of Chester Gigolo: Diary of a Dog Star and Insider Training, was a featured guest at yesterday’s 140th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show press conference in New York City. She and her Berger Picard, Chester, were on hand to help promote the new breeds now eligible to complete in the show.

Christina has been training dogs for over twenty years. Her dogs have appeared in print ads, websites, motion capture for video games, commercials, and television shows—both live and pre-recorded. She was the main trainer on such feature films as Funny Games, As Good As Dead, and Our Idiot Brother. She has also trained dogs to compete in Rally, Competitive Obedience, Conformation, and Agility. Her new book, Insider Training, will be released on February 19.
