My life in dogs began as a teenager showing beagles from the age of 14
My first Champion beagle was a BIS winner at specialty and all breeds level.
My late mother began showing Griffons at the same time and together we bred both breeds for many years under the prefix “beagriff”
There are beagriff champions in both breeds but it was in griffons that we had the most success.
There are beagriff champions in 7 different countries and we bred many all breeds and specialty BIS winners.
I began judging in Australia in about 1987 and progressed to almost 100 breeds before I moved to the UK to live in 2002.
In the UK I give cc’s in Beagles Griffons and Australian terriers in 2023 I judged the griffons at Crufts
Under FCI I am a group judge for groups 3,4,9,10 plus many breeds in groups 2,5,6.
