Grown up with Newfoundland and German Sheperds, dogs have been part of my live ever since. In 1973 I started breeding English Cocker Spaniels, followed by Old English Sheepdogs and Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen under the “Pennylane” prefix. Many national and international champions, European Winner and Worldwinners are bred or shown by me.
In 1980 I was confirmed by the Swiss Kennelclub (SKG) as a judge and since 2012 I am an approved all round judge. In most European countries, England, Australia, South America, USA and Asia I have judged many times and this includes many National Specialties, European Winner- and several World Dog Shows.
Since 2006 I’m member of the SKG board and president of the Judges- and Show- commission and since 2010 member of the FCI Europe Section General Committee. Since 2014 I’m also President of the FCI Show commission. I feel very honoured to be invited to judge at the WDS in Amsterdam2018 and look forward to all your shows with great pleasure.
