Dog History

I have been involved with dogs since 1988 where a partnership was taken up with Esther Joseph of the very well established ‘Triseter Kennels’ were we breed Gordon Setter and Pugs under the “Triseter” prefix. Our kennel has bred many Australian champions and Supreme Champions, winning many Best In Shows. Our Kennel has also exported dogs all over the world, where they have been Best In Show winners.

I obtained my Group 3 (Gundogs) judging license in 2009 and my Group 1 (Toys) judging License in 2013

I am honored to be the President of Sunbury Canine Club which is the biggest one day dog show in the southern hemisphere. I am also involved with 8 other All Breeds dog clubs on the administration/committee side, in most cases I am the show manager of these clubs. I also have a solid commitment with Dogs Victoria where I am an active worker on 2 Sub Committees.

About Me:

I live on a beautiful country property outside of Melbourne where we have many hectares for our dogs to run free and swim in the dams. Currently we have Gordon Setters and Pugs. Our web site www.gordonsetter.com.au

Judging Experience:

I have judge all over Australian and had the pleasure of judging overseas.
I have awarded CACIB & CAC’s at FCI level in Germany, Switzerland, Thailand Philippines & Korea and have awarded CC's in USA, New Zealand, and South Africa
