Fox Terrier Smooth

I have judged in all states of Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, India and Malaysia.
Presented lectures on Dobermanns, Pointers, Fox Terrier Smooths and Jack Russell Terriers.
My interest in Dobermans started at 12 years of age, I was and still am fascinated by this magnificent breed. I acquired my first Dobermann in 1968. Since then I have owned, bred and handled some of the top winning Dobermanns in Australia, the most notable was Grand Ch,
Doberherr Hot Aphrodite, she was the number 2 all-time winning Dobermann bitch in Australia, I have bred over 100 champion Dobermanns.
In the mid 80's I branched into Pointers (English), where along with Annette Bowe, became the number one kennel in Australia for many years. The highlight was having bred the only brother and sister to be awarded Best in Show and Runner up Best in Show (and Best Opposite in Show) at a Pointer National. I bred over 50 Pointer Champions.
2002 saw a new breed enter my life, Fox Terrier (Smooth), Fox Terriers soon became my love, in a short space of time we achieved the number one Fox Terrier Smooth award in Australia in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, number one terrier in Australia in 2008, 2010.
I co owned and handled the biggest winning Terrier in Australia, the SFT, Supreme Ch. Wyninebah Checkmate with 79 BIS and over 400 Grp 1st to his credit.
I have also owned and handled one of the biggest winning Jack Russell Terriers in Australia, Supreme Ch. Whatajack Rebel. This dog was placed Best in Group (Group 1st) at Perth, Hobart, and Canberra Royal Shows and Group 3 at Sydney Royal Show.
