Type of Breeds
I have been involved with dogs since 1970 where my Gordon, English and, Irish Setter shared a home with a Saluki and Borzoi. I have bred Gordon Setters under the "Triseter" prefix for over 40 years and more recently (the past 15 years) breeding and showing Pugs, I have bred English Setters, Irish Setters and owned and shown American Cockers Spaniels, Pointers and Tibetan Terriers, plus I have handled most breeds in the Gundog and many in the Toy and Terrier Groups and other groups.

At present I am the deputy Chairperson Judges Training in Victoria.

My kennel name is 'TRISETER' this name came about from my heavy involvement and owning, breeding and showing three of the Setter Breeds.

I have taken many Gordon Setters and Pugs through to Best in Show at both All Breeds Shows and Speciality Shows. Over the years I have handled many different breeds, with the pinnacle being handling and winning Runner Up In Show from an entry of 291 Gordon Setters at GORDONS2000 (a Gordon Setter Speciality) in England with a Gordon Setter bitch I bred that lived in Finland, this bitches litter brother was exported to the USA and became the #1 Gordon Setter for 2003 and Crufts International Qualifier '04 '05 '06.

Previous to the above I thought that my Best In Group 8 (FCI) win with a Curly Coated Retriever at the World Winners Dog Show in Finland in 1998 was one of the highlight of my show/handling career.

In Australia my pinnacle has been breeding and handling the BEST IN SHOW winner at the 2012 Royal Adelaide Show, with Gordon Setter "Supreme Ch Triseter Celtic Ice".

We have had a lot of success showing our Pugs with winning many Best in Show all breeds and specialties.
