|I started in the sport of dogs in 1975 in Kalamazoo, Michigan with an Old English Sheepdog and a great mentor. I have also owned & exhibited Cocker Spaniels, Chinese Cresteds, Komondorok, Afghans, and Miniature Pinschers and have handled a few other breeds.
With limited breeding I have had two Winners Dog at a Cocker Spaniel National Specialty/Flushing Spaniel Show, one being also awarded BOV in Futurity. A third of my breeding also accomplishing Winners at a National Specialty going on to being a multiple Best in Show winner.
I started judging in 2007 and I have had the great honor to judge the American Spaniel Club’s Cocker Spaniel National Specialty. I am a life member of American Spaniel Club and have served six years on the board of directors, President of the Cocker Spaniel Specialty Club of Dallas, member of the American Chinese Crested Club and Dallas Miniature Pinscher Club. I also am a member of the DFW Judges Association where our main focus is breed education.
I believe in giving each dog my full attention and consideration, as they are entitled to my honest and unbiased opinion.
I currently have several cocker spaniels and one Italian Greyhound. I am approved to judge Best In Show, Toy Group, Miscellaneous Breeds, 13 Sporting Breeds and all breed Junior Showmanship competition.
