I have been involved in the breeding and exhibiting of Samoyeds since 1970 under the Internationally reknowned kennel prefix “Kimchatka”. Since that time I have bred over 80 Champions (5 of which are Grand Champions), and have owned or bred 15 Best in Show winners at All-Breeds Championship shows. Kimchatka also bred “Dogzonline” No 1 Samoyed Australia 2004, 2005, 2006, & 2007. I have also successfully exhibited Whippets, and was the primary handler of Australia’s No. 1 Chow Chow who is a Supreme Champion with multi Best in Show awards.

I am an International All-Breeds judge, and I have been judging since 1980 - I have judged extensively throughout Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA, India, Thailand, Indonnesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, The Philippines, Sri Lanka & Singapore.

I am an accredited examiner with the Australian National Kennel Council and I am also in charge of the training of judges for the Utility Group. I have also examined judges for the Kennel Club of Thailand

My involvement with the running of dog clubs has been for many years in various capacities. I am currently President of the Canine Fanciers Kennel Club. I am an elected member of the South Australian Canine Assn Council, which is the Management board for the State of South Australia, and I am a member of the Disciplinary Committee.

I have recently sold our business “Dogtainers Adelaide” a very successful company which transports animals all over the world, and has a network of 13 Agents throughout Australia. It is the largest business of it’s kind in the country with an extensive network including around 1,000 hire crates. I am now happily retired, and spend more time with my dogs at home, and doing the things I never had time to do when I was working.
