I have been involved in the Dog World since 1968 as a successful breeder, exhibitor and exporter of Australian Silky Terriers under the "DULCANNINA" prefix, and as an exhibitor of all three varieties of Poodles, Pharaoh hound and Lhasa Apso's. From the age of ten I handled my family's dogs in the show ring and later became a partner in the kennel.

Highlights of my involvements with Silky Terriers include:
- Making up approximately 100 Champions
- Dulcannina bred and owned the first Silky Terrier to win Best Exhibit in Show at a Royal Show within Australia (Melbourne Royal 1972)
- Best Exhibit in Group at 10 Royal Shows throughout Australia including Darwin Royal 1992, Melbourne Royal 1992
- Best in Group and Runner Up Best Exhibit in Show at Darwin Royal 1993 and again in 1994 Reserve Best in Group Sydney Royal 1994 & 1996

In addition to my involvement with Silky Terriers I co-owned and handled the white Standard Poodle Australian Champion Leander White Blazer (Imp. South Africa) to Best Exhibit in Show at Sydney Royal Easter Show 1988.

Since 1997 I have been involved with Lhasa Apsos with great success as a partner in the "AMESEN" prefix including winning multiple Best in Group and Group placements at Royal shows within Australia, Multiple Best in Shows (All Breeds) and Multiple Speciality Best in Shows.

"Amesen" has bred approximately 100 Champions including the first Australian Bred Lhasa Apso to gain an English title - BISS Eng & BISS Aust Ch. Amesen Come Fly With Me To Balito.

My previous dog, BISS,BIS, Australian Supreme Champion Chethang Nathaniel (Imp UK) was Number 1 Dog All Breeds in South Australia for the past three consecutive years and Australia's Number 1 Lhasa Apso,2013, 2014 and 2015 and has won 100 Best in Shows in Australia.

I have now sent him to Europe and in very limited showing he has already won five BESTS IN SHOWS and one Supreme BEST IN SHOW. I was first approved to judge the Toy Breeds in 1978 and achieved ALL BREEDS status in 1989.

I have officiated at shows in all States of Australia, Sweden, Norway, Finland both Islands of New Zealand, India, Canada, Thailand, China and Japan.

I have been invited twice to lecture on Silky Terriers to the Terrier Judges at the Terrier Derby Conferences in Sweden.

I judged the Pedigree Chum Junior Showmanship Final at Crufts in 1994. I also judged at the World Dog show 2008 held in Sweden.

I served as an elected council member of the South Australian Canine Association for four years.

Currently I am the Group Seven (Non Sporting Group) Co-ordinator, Examiner, Assessor and Breed Lecturer with the Judges Training Scheme in South Australia.
