I have been involved in the Show World since I was born, growing up with my mother’s English Setters and English Springer Spaniels.

At age 7 my parents decided to get a Cavalier for me to show. Fast forward a few decades and we only have Cavaliers - no Gundogs.

Just some of my dogs and their achievements that I am so proud of ...
Supreme Champion Marcavan Master the Look - Brisbane Royal RUBIG, multiple Best in Group, Specialty Best in Show winner etc
Grand Champion Marcavan Pretty Little Liar - multiple class in shows
Grand Champion Marcavan To the Moon and Back - multiple Best in Groups and Class in Shows
Champion Marcavan Storm Chaser - Specialty Best in Show winner
And last but not least...
Champion Fasusq BitterSweet Symphony - Multiple Best in Groups & Class in Shows, Reserve in show winner. Just 80 points shy of his Grand Champion title at his untimely death.

As a child I had always dreamt of being a judge. So around 2013 I applied to enter the judges training scheme and on the Australia Day weekend of 2015 I judged at my first open show.

4 years later, with a 2 year non judging gap to re-evaluate things, I have accepted another appointment to see how juggling life, work, showing and judging goes.

I am an active member of numerous clubs and committees and enjoy working with them to hold shows. My main focus however is my local All Breeds club - Darling Downs Kennel Club. Of which I have been a member for most of my life. Now holding the position of Vice President, I also do the judges lunches and the canteen. I love my club and our “little family” of members!

I would like to thank...
Jennifer Watt and Marilyn Rose - The group 1 coordinators for all their hard work with lectures.
Andrew Brown - for your constant advice and support. It’s been invaluable!
And all my other friends and family for putting up with me!
