I am ANKC licensed to judge Championship Shows of Hounds, Toys, and Non Sporting and have judged both best in-group and breed specialty shows in all of these groups.

I have had the wonderful opportunity and experience of judging major shows and specialties in all states of Australia, together with international appointments in New Zealand, USA, South Africa and the Philippines.

I have been breeding and exhibiting for over 40 years (Afghans, Borzois, Salukis and Whippets) and have had quite some success under my “Talkabout” prefix. I have had great success in the show ring over the years winning numerous All Breed Best In Show and specialty awards with all the above breeds.

Although primarily involved with Hounds, I have also owned and exhibited other breeds including Wire Fox Terriers, Standard Poodles and American Cockers.

I am currently showing and breeding Salukis, with one of my boys awarded the “Top Saluki in Australia for 2012” for both the All Breeds and Breed Challenge competitions in the DogzOnline Show Dog of the Year Competition and Best In Show 4th at the Royal Melbourne Show 2013.

I have also imported a Saluki from Italy and he is doing extremely well in the show ring, and is the sire of some very promising puppies with one already winning a Best In Show (all breeds) at only 12 months of age.
