I have been around dogs my entire life. My family owned Welsh Corgi Pembrokes, mini & standard smooth Dachshunds. I have done considerable hunting with dogs in my younger years. Along with my wife, Julie we ventured into purebred dogs, owning and breeding German Shepherds in the 1980s.

In 1993 we decided on a different breed, the Belgian Shepherd Dog, which became our absolute passion. We owned the first female Belgian Shepherd Grand Champion in Australia, whose lineage then went on to produce, 6 homebred "Beljekali" Supreme Champions in both Groenendael & Tervueren. We have bred 6 Supreme Champions and campaigned 2 of our imports to this title. We are the only Belgian Shepherd Breeders to have bred a Supreme Champion! Our "Beljekali" Belgian Shepherds are noted for winning numerous All Breeds Best in Shows, Breed Specialty Shows and placing first in the NSW Puppy of the Year 2013. in August 2014 we took one of our Australian Bred Groenendaels to the French speciality with an entry of over 560, she was awarded RCAC from the Open Class. Not only have we produced conformation Champions, we've proudly bred Agility, Obedience, Herding and Dancing With Dogs, multi titled and talented Belgians. Three of our Belgians have also appeared in TV Series and commercials.

I regularly judge throughout Australia which I thoroughly enjoy. I have had the privilege to judge Belgian Shepherd Breed Specialty Shows in France, The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, UK and the USA, along with All Breeds judging assignments in Finland, Ireland, Sweden, France, USA & New Zealand. I have a commitment to continue to steward from time to time and assist with assessing in the current NSW Judges Training Scheme. I am an active member of the NSW Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of NSW and hold current memberships with numerous Australian and overseas Dog Clubs.
