Jeanie Tappan ~ Professional Handler

Jeannie Tappan was first introduced to Rottweilers almost 45 years ago through Fred McNabb, and began to handle dogs at AKC shows.  Today, Jeannie has finished the championships of over one hundred Rottweilers, many of them dogs she has bred.

Her breeding program started under the kennel name "Jacaranda".  In 2006, she changed her kennel name to "Ebony Rottweilers".
