Senior Agility

About Me

I started Agility in Christchurch around 1987, and soon fell in love with the sport. I began judging because at the time there were no "agility" judges, the first judges being Obedience-based. I like to judge all levels of agility, but especially Intermediate and Senior as I like to challenge the top handlers and their dogs. The best things about judging are meeting new people, travelling to new Clubs, designing new courses, and watching lots of agility from the best seat in the house! The worst things are not getting to talk to people because you are in the ring alone for much of the day! Moss is retired and Tana, my lovely red BC is an Agility Grand Champion. I am hoping to get a new puppy to tain soon. I hope to continue in the sport for many more years, it is a sport that the oldies can enjoy and do well in as much as the youngsters.

Recent Shows Judged At

I have had too many Judging appointments to remember over the years including NDTAs and the National Dog Show. I hope that in the coming years I can help aspiring Judges through a new training process.

Judging History

I have judged in rain and shine, but never the snow or hail (long may that continue). I am a sun-lover and dont like getting cold and wet (especially when it runs down your back!)
