Judging History


I have been invited to judge in Australia on several occasions, appointments I have thoroughly enjoyed.

The highlight for me in judging was the invitation to judge the South Island Whippet Club Specialty, where I drew, a still unbeaten record entry

In 2002 I convened New Zealand’s first “ National Whippet Show”, with judge Bo Bengtson, world renowned Whipet Specialist.

I thoroughly enjoy judging dogs, where ever they might be.
