About Me

My involvement in purebred dogs has been lifelong. I am a third generation dog showing and breeding enthusiast and this hobby has taken me to dog shows all around the world.

I own and breed Pugs, Pekingese and Saint Bernard's under the prefix of Tai Yuan however my family has bred and shown St Bernard's and Pekingese successfully for over 50 years.

In younger years I was a successful junior handler and spent 5 years in Australia working, grooming and handling breeds in all groups.

I have owned, bred and handled several Best In Show winners, Grand and Supreme Champions. I was the owner and handler of the only Miniature Pinscher ever to have achieved Grand Champion status in both Australia and New Zealand.

While in Australia I developed a great love for German Shepherds and have since been lucky enough to attend many German Shepherd events and shows and have had the opportunity to learn about the breed from many respected German Shepherd breeders and judges. In 2017, I was honored to be the Show Manager of the NZ German Shepherd National which was judged by highly respected SV judge Andy Tong.

My kennel has bred and/or owned over 100 champions and over 20 Grand champions. We have also been awarded Best In Show at the New Zealand National Dog Show on three occasions as well as Reserve Best In Show at the New Zealand National Dog Show on four occasions with numerous other group awards also obtained at these shows over the years.
