About Me

I have been involved with dogs nearly all my life. My first breed of dog was a Cocker Spaniel, I later began showing and breeding American Cocker Spaniels.  My wife Lyn and I have bred and owned Akitas and our Zaminka Samoyeds, which are well known throughout the world. Dogs either bred by us or owned by us have won over 70 Best in Shows at All Breed Shows.  We have also bred, owned and raced several thoroughbred horses. Having a good eye for a dog is not unlike having an eye for a good horse.  At the age of 18 I was the Secretary of The Gundog Society and a founding member of this club. 

My Club involvement goes back a very long way. I have been:
Secretary/Treasurer for the Cocker Spaniel Club (at the age of 18),

Secretary/Treasurer of the Gundog Society (being a foundation member of this Club).

Assistant Show Manager of the NZKC National Dog Show,

Committee member of The Wellington Management Committee,

Secretary of the Wellington Judges Committee and President of Horowhenua Kennel Association

President of The Samoyed Club for 8 years.
 
Currently I am Secretary for the Hutt Valley Kennel Centre, Life Member of The Samoyed Club Inc.  


I started my judging career with the Gundog Group and then Utility, Non Sporting , Toys & Hounds. I am currently aspiring to the Working Dog Group.
