Kennel Name:

Type of Breeds
My involvement with purebred dogs began in the late 1970's, when I met my wife of over 40 years, 2 Great Danes were part of the deal. We bred and exhibited Great Danes successfully, owning and breeding Best in Show winners until the mid 90's, when English Foxhounds started to take over the kennel.

Since then, we have bred and owned Best in Show, Royal Group winning & Record-breaking English Foxhounds & Harriers. We have bred or owned over 47 champions in these breeds. In recent years hounds from our kennel Foxhunt have been exported to the USA, Europe and New Zealand.

My three daughters also breed and exhibit dogs and through them I have had a direct involvement in Beagles, Boxers, Shar Pei, Siberian Huskies, Afghan Hounds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks and more recently Dobermanns. All of those breeds have enjoyed considerable success.

I have been involved with club Management for many of the years I have been involved in conformation showing and I am President of Medowie ABKC, Vice President of Liverpool ABKC, Secretary of Bay City ABKC, as well as Show Secretary for many other clubs.

I am privileged to be a Councillor at the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW where my main role currently is Chairman of Domestic Animals, a role which enables me the great honour of overseeing the organisation and successful execution of one of Australia's largest and most prestigious shows The Sydney Royal Dog Show.

My Judging career commenced in 1989 and since then I have been lucky enough to have judged in all states of Australia, overseas in Europe, Asia, and extensively in New Zealand.

For the last 20 years, I have been involved in publishing. Our company Top Dog Media produces canine publications including Dog News Australia of which I am Editor-in-chief. Over two decades it has enabled me to see dogs in depth from Australia, Asia and in fact the world.

As part of my work with Top Dog Media I wrote the bestselling book The Concise Australian Dog Judges Guide, which has now had three editions and been eagerly sought after by judges all over the world.
