Judge Name : Mr John Mitchell (QLD)
Please visit the ANKC site for contact details for this judge.
Licensed ANKC Group(s)OP - Open Show Status CH - Championship Show Status JH - Junior Handler
I have been involved with the Dog World for about 26 years when I exhibited my first toy dog. Shortly afterwards I met and fell in love with Bouviers and have been owned by several ever since that point of time.
I have been very active in the herding world and understand what many of our working dogs look like when they are earning their keep! I am one of the founding members of "The Continental Herding Club INC" in Queensland and have held several roles in that club during the time including the position as President.
I am a fully accredited Herding Judge for all tests, all trials and all levels and have judged in Qld, NSW, Vic and South Australia over the last 5 years.
I am currently an active member of the Ipswich Kennel Club.
I have elevated as a Group 5 judge at Championship Shows during 2016, passed my exams for Group 6 in the same year at an Open Show level, Completed my Group 7 Open licence and now preparing for Part B Studies in Group 1.
I cannot thank my mentors, coordinators and exhibitors enough for all the time they have invested in me over the last few years. My journey has been well supported by all of you and I appreciate that you have shared your experience and time with me. Thank you.
I have a very strong interest in "The Working Breeds and I am currently exploring some new working activities with our new Imported Dutch Bouvier bitch 'Eva'.
