I have spent the majority of my life in and around the canine scene. I started exhibiting in 1972, my first dog being a German shepherd which I trained for obedience as well as competing in the show ring. To date I have bred and or owned UK and international Champions ( in excess of 25 in the UK) in Griffons, Schipperkes and Toy Poodles as well as handling several Scottish Terriers, belonging to my partner Stuart Plane, to their titles.
I first judged at Open Show level in 1976 and awarded CC’s for the first time in 1985. I award CC’s in the Toy, Terrier and Utility Groups and I am approved to judge the Toy Group at Championship level in the UK
