About Me

I was born into the Dog show world, My Parents bred and showed Bull terriers under the (Brixton) prefix. I started in Australian terriers at the age of 13 years. Tasdale Australian terriers are generally well known within the breed world wide. I have had great success with my Aussies and have exported to Australia, the USA and Finland.
My whole family have been involved in breeding and showing. My older sister breeds and shows Corgi's under the (Pengavin)prefix,. She has also bred West Highland White's in the past, while my younger sister breeds Border terriers (Tennille), Bull Terriers (Brixton) and Boxers (Boxton & Tennille).

Apart from Australian terriers I have also owned/and/or bred Border terriers, Lakeland terriers, Bull terriers, Boxers and Irish terriers. I have handled many breeds over the years.

Committee involvement has been in all capacities from committee member through to President. I have served for :
The Canterbury Junior Kennel Society (founding Secretary), The Australian terrier club, the Canterbury Combined Terrier Club - Life member, The South Island Boxer Club and the Canterbury Bull terrier Club & the United Bull Breeds Club.

Recent Shows Judged At

The Highlight of my judging career so far was Judging the World Australian terrier show in Helsinki Finland in conjunction with the world terrier show and the World dog show. The club gained a special dispensation for me to judge the 113 entrants. It was a great honour and I am informed it was the largest entry of Australian terriers anywhere in the world.
