New Judge for Nov 2023 Show Miss Jackie Kitchener
Born into the dog showing world, l have had a lifetime involvement in everything to do with dogs. I was an early winner of Junior Handler of the Year (1971), making up the family's first Miniature Poodle champion in the same year. More....
Since that time we have owned/bred 38 champions, won approaching 300 CCs and enjoyed consistent success with Group and BIS wins now for over 5 decades. I first judged at the age of 15 and have awarded CCs since 1986. I now award CCs to 12 Utility Breeds and have judged the Group at Championship level on many occasions, including Crufts 2019.
I grew to love Dalmatians from those childhood days being mentored by Joan Agate Hilton, a close family friend, and first judged them in 1991. I have awarded CCs in the breed since 2008, having now done them on 6 further occasions - including the BDC in 2018 where I did the females. It is a privilege to have been asked to judge here again and l look forward to my day with your lovely dogs.
(NB Joan Agate-Hilton (Horsemans) was a successful dalmatian breeder and judge about 50 years, always keeping a descending line of four to five bitches. Show Sec.)
