Licensed ANKC Group(s)OP - Open Show Status CH - Championship Show Status JH - Junior Handler
As a child my family always had a Labrador Retriever my father thought they were the only dog to own. In conjunction with my husband we have been exhibiting German Shorthaired Pointers since 1990 breeding our first litter of GSP’s under the Gershopoin prefix with the vision to produce dual purpose German Shorthaired Pointers we have to date bred and made up 4 Dual Champions in the Show and Field. Titled dogs to their Show titles Field titles, Grand Champion title and Supreme Champion title. My most memorable accomplishment being awarded both Challenges, Best in Show and Puppy in Show at the 1998 National GSP Speciality. I added Borzois to our kennel in 1994 and have been successful in the show ring at AllBreeds and Speciality level. I also have an avid interest in Labrador Retrievers, English Pointers and English Cocker Spaniels having campaigned several to their show titles.
In 2009 we added Smooth Fox Terriers, Parson Russell Terrier and Jack Russell Terriers – though we still have German Shorthaired Pointers and 1 Borzoi we don’t show these so much these days though my husband still works his Shorthairs and is active in both judging and competing in Retrieving Trials.
I am licenced to judge Toys, Terriers, Gundogs, Hounds,Working Dogs and Non-Sporting. I have judged in New South Wales, South Australia,Queensland and New Zealand at All Breeds and Specialty level.
