Her second dog, Clancy of Kristin Acres, UD, Can. CD, a rescued golden retriever, was to be her husband Dave's dog. Dave took nine-month-old Clancy through one beginner class, but when Clancy still wouldn't come when called, Betsy took over his training too. Clancy earned his CD in 1982. Betsy then took a break to have her first child, Kristan--the first of four girls--and resumed showing in 1983, when she and Clancy earned his Canadian CD and American CDX. Clancy's career was interrupted again in 1985 by the birth of Betsy's second daughter, Jackie, but not before Clancy got his UD, including a high in trial from Utility B for his second leg, in the middle of July when Betsy was eight-and-a-half-months pregnant!
