Biography
A lifetime participant in the sport of dogs, Mrs. Stenmark competed in her first dog show in 1967, showing her Saint Bernard in Vancouver, B.C. She went on to become a breeder of Saint Bernards, bred a litter of Salukis but for the last 43 years it's been Dandie Dinmont Terriers, still breeding today under the King's Mtn. prefix.

Mrs. Stenmark was approved in 1977 to judge Saint Bernards. She now judges all Sporting, all Hounds, all Terriers, 12 Working breeds, both Corgis and Best in Show. In 1980 she chaired the first Del Valle Dog Club of Livermore show and recently retired as show chairman, having chaired 70 consecutive all breed events.

In 1990 Mrs. Stenmark co-founded Responsible Dog Breeders of San Mateo County in response to the first animal rights’ inspired anti-breeding laws. RDB/SMC successfully overturned this first restrictive legislation and the group was later granted AKC recognition as Skyline Dog Fanciers, now an all-breed show that accompanies the Del Valle shows to become the Harvest Moon Classic.

Mrs. Stenmark is the past President of the Dandie Dinmont Terrier Club of America, a past board member of the San Mateo County Fair Board and Take the Lead, and a long-time member of the AKC Trial Board.

Professionally Mrs. Stenmark was a partner in the firm of her late husband, Roy, Stenmark Metal Specialties, specializing in seismic motion systems. In later years she was the Volunteer Coordinator at Palo Alto Animal Services.

In 2011 she was awarded the prestigious Winkie for Annual Achievement, voted by her peers Judge of the Year. She has judged 11 times at Westminster, judging Best in Show in 2018. She previously judged the Hound Group both in 1998 and 2015, and the Terrier Group in 2008.
