Our first serious show dogs were English Setters. We had a few English Setters before we found a Gordon that we liked. In the late 70’s, we also acquired our first English Cocker. Once we started breeding English Cockers, the English Setters slowly left. We had our first Gordon litter in 1978. This was shortly after we had relocated to Tucson, Arizona from Denver, Colorado.

Through the years we have owned all four Setters. We have also had an Afghan, a Briard, a black Standard Poodle and Smooth Coated Fox Terriers, but our focus has been with the Gordons and English Cockers. We added Smooth Coated Fox Terriers 15 years ago and have bred them.

I served 10 years on the National Board of the Gordon Setter Club of America and am past president of Scottsdale Dog Fanciers All Breed Club. I was instrumental in starting the Arizona Sporting Dog Club, which recently had its twelfth show. In January 2011, I was appointed the Judges’ Education Chairperson for the Gordon Setter Club of America. In 2014, I was appointed Judge’s Education coordinator for the Irish Red and White Setters.

I received my Judging license in 1993, initially approved for Irish, English, Gordon Setters, English Cocker Spaniels and All Breed Junior Showmanship. I now am licensed for the Sporting Group, Non-Sporting Group, the Working Group, Toy Group, 16 hounds, 8 Terriers breeds, Misc. Breeds and Best in Show. I have judged in Australia, China, Columbia, Ireland, Mexico, South Korea and Canada.
