Belgian Shepherd Dogs
How long have you been a UKC judge?
Are you a breeder / how long have you been breeding dogs?
I bred my first litter in 1986, but my family has been breeding since 1962.
How long have you been involved with dogs? (Conformation/Performance)
Since I was born.
What events, if any, do you participate in other than the event type in which you are Judging?
I have competed and titled dogs in obedience, rally and have trained in agility. All dog sports interest me.
In 100 words or less, how did you become involved with dogs?
I was born into a dog loving family. My parents had Cocker Spaniels at the time but purchased our first Tervueren when I was 3 years old. I grew up surrounded by dogs. I can't even remember the first time I went into the ring!
At one time I had the youngest BSD CH in UKC history. He later became a Grand and earned a big AKC group placement. But undoubted I'm proudest of the quality and character of the dogs that I've bred.
