|I owned my first show dog, a collie rough in 1963 later adding a cocker spaniel from the famous Australian "˜Lambrigg" kennels. In 1970 I purchased my first GSP, breeding many Australian Champions and an Australian Field Trial Champion under the prefix "˜Robcardi". My GSPs also competed in utility field trials, obedience and gundog obedience. After a trip to England in 1977, We imported an English Pointer sired by the preeminent Sh. Ch. Crookrise Flint and this was the start of a long involvement with Pointers. We imported four Pointers from UK during the ensuing 10 years. In the 90's Trevor and I became enamoured with Australian Terriers. We have exported and imported from USA and Finland. We have bred many Champions. Our last boy "Turbo" a multi BIS and Group 1 Supreme Champion. His son has recently gained his Neuter Championship Title with four Best Neuter In Show.
I first qualified as a Gundog Group judge in 1980 and continued studying to gain my All Breeds status 2004. I am a recognized FCI judge. Throughout my career I have been privileged to judge in all States and Territories of Australia, New Zealand (North and South Islands), USA, UK, India, China, Philippines and Finland. 2019 will be my first appointment in Canada.
