I have been involved in the world of show dogs for over 40 years.
I have owned and shown Champions, CC winners and Kennel Club Stud book qualifiers in three breeds in the UK.
My first judging appointment was in 1983. I award Kennel Club Challenge Certificates in five Toy breeds, and judge the Toy Group at Championship Show level.
I have had the honour of judging at Crufts in 2015 & 2017. I have also judged overseas, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Russia, Iceland, Moldova, Siberia & Australia.
I have served on the committees of several breed clubs, and I am currently the Show Secretary and Show Manager for a breed club. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling.
Since 1996 I have been a Breed Note correspondent in Our Dogs weekly newspaper, and I have had feature breed articles published.
I am looking forward to judging at the Eurodogshow.
