About Us

In 2009 Ike Liotto of Liotto Boxers and Tina Starr of Ivylane Boxers joined forces to bring you years of combined experience in exhibiting dogs. Our primary show territories are in FL, GA, AL, MS, LA and TX. We attend the American Boxer Club National Specialty annually. Attendance at Regional Specialty events depends on location. We are knowledgeable in the care, training, conditioning, and proper presentation of the breeds that we handle. If you are interested in our handling services, please see our Handling Services.

I have been involved with the Boxer breed for 18 years and am a member of the Boxer Club of Louisiana, Houston Boxer Club and American Boxer Club. I have been active in showing Boxers for 17 years. Starting out as an owner handler I soon began handling for others. My love for the sport and the boxer breed has grown through the years and I enjoy each and everytime I enter the ring. After working full-time and showing dogs for 10 years, I surrendered my job in May 2003, and begain a full-time handling career. Although I have handled other breeds, Boxers are and will always be my main focus.


While not always in Boxers, dogs have always been a major part of my life. I started out with Rottweilers and German Shepherd Dogs, but always had a Boxer as a house pet. My Rotties and Shepherds were true working dogs competing in Obedience, Tracking, and Schutzhund. I have also trained Search and Rescue Dogs, Police Patrol Dogs and Narcotics Detection Dogs. I soon decided to try my hand in the breed ring. I am an All Breed Handler, specializing in Boxers. I also have 20 years experience as a Veterinary Technician. Visit my personal website for more information about me.

Donna Nicoloff

Donna is the unsung hero of the business. She will be found at most shows helping to potty, excercise, feed, groom, get dogs ringside and basiclly keep Ike & Tina going when things get chaotic ring side and help show dogs when needed. Ike & Tina will often be heard saying "Go ask Donna!" Away from the shows Donna sets the show schedule up with ring times, ring numbers, breed counts etc so that Ike & Tina know where they need to be at all times. Donna is an extremely valuable part of what we do.

Peyton Pierce

Peyton is not just any Junior Handler, she too is a vital part of what we do week in and week out. Peyton began assisting us in 2012. She has proven to be a HUGE asset to us both at home and on the road. Over the past couple of years Peyton has worked very hard at fine tuning her skills and is turning into quite a force to be reckoned with. We are very proud of all of her accomplishments. Outside of the dog shows Peyton excells in her studies, she is an honor roll student who is also a very talented singer. She also plays the French Horn in the school band. Peyton travels with us as much as she can always remembering that priority number 1 is her education. We appreciate her parents Jeff & April Pierce for letting us borrow Peyton as much as possible and also to her Grandmother Wanda Walthall for helping to get Peyton to and from us.
