In May 2013 I started my journey in education and hands on experience to work towards becoming a Rhodesian Ridgeback Breed Specialist. On 9 July 2022 I had the honour of judging my first Championship Show entry in the UK - an entry full to the brim of quality. Thank you to the committee of the East of England Championship Show Committee for the invitation. I am on the A1 Judging Lists for the Midland & Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (M&NRRC), Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Great Britain (RRCGB) and the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Scotland (RRCS).
In September 2022 I had the great honour of judging the Czech Republic Rhodesian Ridgeback Club 30th Anniversary Show with a total entry of 471 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. A wonderful 2 days and a great privilege to judge the entire entry with fellow judges Marielle Tresoor and Stanislava Janická.
An invitation to award my 2nd set of UK Challenge Certificates has be warmly received from the committee of Border Union Agricultural Society to judge their 2024 Championship Show.
I very much look forward to future appointments, both in the UK and abroad and thank the societies and exhibitors who give me the honour of judging this magnificent breed.
To quote Tom Horner, who in my humble opinion demonstrates the art of judging dogs perfectly in his book Take Them Round, Please, on his excellent guidance on fair and balanced judging, of which I am ever mindful of:
