In 1997 I became a judge for Belgian shepherds.
I’ve bred Groenendaals under the kennelname ‘La Poumyroffe’ but now I don’t breed anymore. I don’t have the time because I’m judging a lot abroad.
At this moment I have 3 dogs at home : a smooth Griffon Havana of Baluchistan (Belgian champion) and 2 Tervurens : Multi Ch. Grimmendans Iroquoi who became World champion in Salzburg and a young male Grimmendans Nvictus. I also co-own a Groenendaal female Multi Ch, Nepal de Bruine Buck who won Crufts in 2015 and a Tervuren male Grimmendans Lavignac who won the World show in Milan.
I have already judged in most European countries, Israel, USA, Argentina and Australia. Beside groups 1, 2, 5 and 10 I'm qualified for a lot of breeds in group 9, for the Rhodesian Ridgeback and Dalmatian in group 6 and some breeds in group 3. I’m the general secretary of the “Lokerse Winner”, a show for FCI-groups 1 and 2, I’m the president of section 4A, vice-president of the Belgian Club for Griffons, Papillons and Phalènes and I’m a committee member of the Belgian Kennel Club and of the Judges’ Qualification Committee. Beside this I’m responsible for the ring stewards at some Belgian shows, the European Dog Show held in Brussels in 2016 included.
I would like to thank the Dutch Kennel Club for the kind invitation! I wish them a lot of success and I’m sure that it will be a great organization! It’s really a big honor to judge at this World Dog Show!
