My name is James Bennett. I was born in the Dog World as I am a 3rd generation dog Phanatic, but I didn’t start showing until I was 15 years old. I own my own grooming salon business which keeps myself & team very busy. I absolutely love going to the gym & keeping fit. I wake up at 4am every day and workout before my busy days in my salon.
I’ve lived in Brisbane all my life; we are very lucky to have so many show venues in Queensland, but my main showground is Durack showgrounds. I breed Standard & Miniature Poodles and in my short time breeding myself I have been very fortunate to accomplish many iconic moments. Poodles are my specialty, but I also specialise in hand scissoring. I really love showing dogs and seeing the love, passion and pride we all take in this beautiful hobby we all do.
I have used Plush Puppy since 2011 and fell in love with the brand. There are many brands in the industry, but nothing even compares in my eyes than Plush Puppy! It’s the best, it’s a brand that promotes itself by its results.
Choosing only a few Plush Puppy products is hard! I have 3 that I always suggest, Seabreeze Oil, Coat Rescue & Natural Silk Protein Conditioner as it’s the best coat care products out there, in my eyes.
I am just so thankful to have gathered & learnt the knowledge I have in grooming, handling & general life from so many amazing dog show people worldwide as this sport is something, I am so passionate about!
