Judge CV

My family always had dogs, but not always with a pedigree. In 1978, I bought my first dog with a pedigree, an Afghan Hound female, "AIDU Zlatý šíp", with which I started participating at shows. I also met my husband at the show, who also had Afghan Hounds, and he already had an FCI-registered kennel, "GANDAMAK." Since 1980, my husband Vlastislav and I have been breeding Afghan Hounds until today, and we have bred many successful dogs of this breed. Our breedings are still successful at shows, where they won many high awards and titles, such as World and European winners. We´ve bred many international and national champions. Our dogs are also active in coursing, winning the highest awards.

We also bred Deerhounds for a very short time. In 1980, we brought the first Deerhound female. At the moment, we also have Whippets, but I remained loyal to Sighthounds.

I´ve been an international FCI judge for Greyhounds since 1986. I´m an international judge for FCI groups VII., IX., X., and some breeds from the FCI groups I., V., and VI., unrecognized breeds, and for Junior Handling. I judged many international and club shows in almost all European countries, Australia, and South Africa. I was also honored to judge at the World and European Dog Show.

Since 1989, I´ve been active as a committee member of the Slovak Sighthound Club. The time spent with our Whippets is beautiful.
