About Me

I have been involved with dogs nearly all my life. My parents brought me my first dog, a Cocker Spaniel, as a gift when I was 12 years old. I worked in boarding kennels in Karori, Wellington as a youngster and helped to show various breeds of dogs for the owners. They included: Dalmatians, Golden Retrievers, Bassett Hounds, Griffon Bruxellois, Springer Spaniels, Standard Schnauzers just to name a few. I have owned and bred American Cocker Spaniels and Samoyeds. I have had considerable success with these breeds.



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 The Samoyed Club for 8 years.



Currently I am Secretary for the Horowhenua-Kapiti Judges Association,Committee Member of the NZKC Wellington Management Board, Life Member of The Samoyed Club Inc. and I am in my fifth term as President of the Horowhenua Kennel Association.



My wife and I own and operate Boarding Kennels and breed Minature Horses, race & breed thoroughbred horses ,Charolais Cattle, Sheep, Samoyeds and Akitas. Before this lifestyle I was involved In the IT Business working for one of the largest Computer Companies in New Zealand, in a managerial position.



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.
