I awarded my first set of champion certificates in beagles in 1975 and award cc’s in all breeds in the hound group classified in the UK. I am honoured to be judging BIS at Crufts 2018. I have judged many times at Crufts over the years, including the Hound Group in 2002. I now award cc’s in many breeds across our 7 groups - and get my final group - the Gundog group in May 18. I have judged extensively abroad in many countries – in 2016 I have been judging twice in Australia which was my third trip there.
I still keep my BAYARD kennel with over 20 beagles and have made up many champions in beagles. I have also made up champions in whippets, dachshunds, pharaoh hounds and miniature pinschers.
