I grew up with a lifelong passion for all things horsey, whether it be horse racing, point to pointing, show jumping etc.

I first came across the Bullmastiff in the early 1990's, I bought Agar to join our Rottweiler Floyd (the original) and have always had one since.

As you get older you don't bounce so well, so I was looking for another interest, as they say the rest is history. We started looking for a puppy and came to the Northern Bullmastiff Club Championship Show 2009 to have a look, it didn't put us off, we got Floyd (the 2nd), not the best Bullmastiff, but he was sound & loved showing.

By this point we had the bug and 6 months later we got Rox, who was my foundation bitch, she gave me my 1st RCC. Coy (my Big Bopper son) came along 6 months later and gave me my first Best in Show at Newark Showground in 2012.

I have bred or owned 4 dogs who have gained their Studbook number, won CC, RCC & gained a Junior Warrant, won 2 classes at Crufts, qualified for the Junior Warrant Competition Semi Finals at Discover Dogs, won a Puppy Group 2 at Darlington Championship Show and 4 Best in Show at Open Show Level.

I look forward to being given the privilege of being able to go over your dogs.
