"I bought my first hound ever in 1974. It was an Afghan Hound bitch already from Slovak breeding. In the times of communism conditions for breeding were much curtailed. We could travel only to Hungary and Poland. Other European countries were for people from Czechoslovakia inaccessible.
In 1978 the first litter with which we started the GANDAMAK breeding was born. For breeding we used only our own bitches, and from those only the best ones. Still under the communism regime, we used studs whose owners we could persuade to undergo all the bureaucracy in order to get admission to enter Slovakia.
My career as a judge started in 1980 when I started with judging Afghan Hounds. Then in 1985 I became a judge for the whole FCI Group 10.
Since 2000 I have started to extend my judging scope to other breeds. So, to this day I am judging the following breeds:
Group 1. Bearded Collie, Border Collie, Welsh Corgi Cardigan, Welsh Corgi Pembroke
Group 2. Doberman, Rottweiler, Pincher, Zwergpincher
Group 5. Alaskan Malamute, American Akita, Basenji, Cirneco dell´Etna, Pharaoh Hound, Perro Sin Pello Del Peru, Podenco
Ibizenco, Podenco Portugues, Samoyed, Shiba, Siberian Husky
Group 6. Dalmatian, Rhodesian Ridgeback
Group 7. Hungarian Wire-haired Pointing Dog, Hungarian Short-haired Pointing Dog
Group 9. Chinese Crested Dog
I have judged in England, Dubai, Scandinavia, South Africa, Israel, USA, Australia and Russia, and practically all over the Europe. I had the honour to judge at two world dog shows – in Poland in 2006 and in France in 2011, and the World Champion of Champions for the anniversary 100 year of the FCI in Brussel-Belgium in 2011.
I am honoured by your invitation and am looking forward to seeing and judging your World dog show 2018."
