I began showing dogs in the early sixties with my parents Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s.Then in the early seventies I acquired my first Old English Sheepdog. I showed a number of  O.E.S. to their New Zealand titles.

I also at this time purchased my first Norwegian Elkhound and have owned or bred twelve New Zealand champions including my USA import NZ Ch Windy Cove Brut N’ Rodna’s Banjo,

who was shown with some success in the U.K. for me, by Joe Cartledge.

In 1977 I acquired my first Tibetan Terrier NZ Ch Granton Milord Argyle from Sue Wilson in Australia. Bobby was the first T.T. to come to New Zealand and the first T.T. champion in this country.

I followed this up with the purchase of  Tibetan terriers  from  Jill Gould (NZ Ch Arkatagh Sarabande) Cindy Hewitt (NZ Ch Chiangtzu Berillium ), Joan  Cain (NZ Ch Jemecs Briareus and NZ Ch Jemecs Endymion )

In 1978 I was admitted to the New Zealand Kennel Club Judges Panel. I am at present licenced to judge all breeds and groups at championship level and to award CC’s to all breeds in those groups.

I am also licenced to judge Best in Show. I have awarded C.C.’s in Tibetan Terriers in both the North and South Islands here in New Zealand.

I have also judged the breed in Australia and in 2002 I judged at the Tibetan Terrier Assn. Championship Show in the United Kingdom. Also in 2002 I judged the Northern Samoyed Society, UK Samoyed of the Year Contest.
