Welcome to our Judge!
My first purebred dog was a Miniature Poodle. He was soon followed by another and then I became a member of the Canadian Kennel Club. I bred Miniature Poodles but I always wanted a big dog. In 1981, an Old English Sheepdog arrived and I began obedience classes, showing and training in obedience in 1984. It was love at first sight when a Standard Poodle was added to the mix, who became my soulmate dog and an obedience trial champion.
My passion for Poodles and Obedience evolved and in 1998 I began judging Obedience Trials followed by Rally Obedience. I believe every dog deserves respectful treatment and a lifetime commitment plus an education. I currently am owned by five Standard Poodles so my education will continue into the foreseeable future.
