Even as a child I went to dogshows with my parents and when I was old enough I started to work in the ring as ringsteward. My parents bred Great swiss mountain dogs very successfully and therefore it is no wonder that the first dog I showed and bred with was out of this breed.
In 1980 I became judge for all swiss mountaindogs, but by circumstances I changed breed and got my first long coated Chihuahua, my breed for the next 20 years. In the following years I became judge for more breeds, specially in group 9 and 5, in the end a group-judge. Since 2003
I am the chairman of our local kennel club and organizing Salzburg dogshow every year. Now I have Shiba, a very interesting breed, which I love very much.
