I started in the world of dogs with 15 years as a handler of 1 Great Dane and that same year I bought my first dog to show, a nice brindle Boxer male.
A year later I acquired my first Pyrenean Mountain Dog in France, 1 year later 1 bitch and my first litter, then I never stopped until today that I also have Dobermanns. I bred and got some excellent results and titles like Champions of France and other countries, as well as titles of World-winner Champions.
I have judged in all the European countries, USA and Australia , the WDS in Porto, Paris, Helsinki and this time I have the honour to judge the 4th time in Amsterdam, also judge the EDS in Brussels and Kiev.
