Darja Klevišar

Judge CV

My name is Darja Klevisar, a breeder of the Coton de Tulear with the prefix Cotonroyal and a FCI international judge from Slovenia. I am specialist for Bichon breeds and Poodles. So far, my judging have been mainly in Slovenia, at Specialty show on the 40th anniversary of the Coton de Tulear club in Germany and Denmark.

I am quite active in Slovenian cynology, as a Board member and member of Breeding Commission in Slovenian Club for Toy Breeds and Poodles.

Dogs have always been a part of our household, where we had Miniature Pinschers, Miniature Schnauzers and Highland Terriers.

The first Coton de Tulear came into my life in 2009, as a family and therapy dog for my son, but we soon recognised also great show potential in him. As an art professor, I combined a sense of aesthetics with passion and dedication to the breed, which resulted in our success year after year. Out of the kennel came many champions, multiple Group and BIS Winners, multiple European and World Winners and Top Coton de Tulear Winners of the year: Slovenia, Hungary, Denmark, South Africa.
