I commenced showing in 1980 with German Shorthaired Pointers, I continued in this breed until the late 1990's. I also owned and showed a Labrador Retriever. In 1985 I got my first Flatcoated Retriever, pioneered flatcoats in the show ring in SA and have stayed with this breed. I competed in Retrieving Trials with all three breeds - giving me a good understanding of why soundness is so essential. I have handled Golden Retrievers and Cocker Spaniels - and currently exhibit four Flatcoated Retrievers.

To improve the gene pool in Flatcoated Retrievers I have imported two bitches and one dog, and frozen semen from two dogs.

To date I have judged a Gundog Group in South Australia. A Weimaraner Specialty and German Shorthaired Pointer Specialty in Victoria, a German Shorthaired Pointer Specialty and a Labrador Specialty in Western Australia.

I gained my Group 2 Licence in October 2012, and judged this group in SA in September 2013. More recently October 2013, I was part of an International panel of judges at the Tauranga Kennel Assn two days show in New Zealand - judging Puppy Sweepstakes, Terriers, and Gundogs - what a thrill when my Best in Group Gundog winner went Best in Show under Cecilia Lindstrom from Canada.

In January 2015 I judged Group 2 and the Puppy Stakes at the Nelson District Kennel Assn and the Gundog Championship Show for the Tasman District Gundog Society on the South Island of New Zealand, this again with a lovely panel of International judges and a judge from New South Wales.
