My own breeds are the Dobermann and Miniature Pinscher. I have had Dobermanns since 1974 and then went into Min Pins as well in 1982. I am approved by the Kennel Club to award CCs in three Working breeds and one Toy breed.
I first judged Bullmastiffs in 1990 but due to the lack of classification of the breed at Open Shows I have only judged the breed a few times, the last time being in 2006.
I have judged over 70 Best in Shows in the UK, Ireland and Malta. I am looking forward to judging at your Club Show in February.
