Judging History

Like many judges - the highlights would have to be judging one's own breed.

Julie has had the pleasure of judging Labradors in Australia, Russia (2 x times), Japan, Belgium, and the USA (6 x times) - including the prestigious Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac - recognized as being the biggest Labrador show in the World.

Other favourite breeds are English Pointers, Golden Retrievers and Weimaraners.
