Raised with a Boxer and bred English Bulldogs and Pugs (1992-2000). Surrounded by English Bulldogs I got a Bullmastiff in 2010.
I am a judge since 1988 – at the beginning only the English and French Bulldog, but in 2010 I passed all the exams and was appointed to be group judge of FCI group 2.
I have judged at several specialties in Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, France, Holland, Russia, New Zealand and Australia. I als judged French Bulldog sant the WDS in Stockholm 2008.
Besides judging I was (or have been) a board member of several breed clubs and co-responsible for the protocol for judging English Bulldogs as mentioned in the health program of the breed clubs in convenant with the Dutch Kennel Club “Raad van Beheer”. Furthermore I was co-responsible for the organisation of the 100-year jubilee show of the Dutch Bulldog Club with an entry record of 405 French Bulldogs, co-organizer of the “Dogachtigen Show”(FCI group 2) and of dogshow Uden.
