I award C.C.s in Afghan Hounds and Tibetan Terriers. I do not accept judging appointments

for Whippets. This is my "show and enjoy" breed.


I first awarded C.C.s in Afghan Hounds in 1979 at the Welsh Kennel Club. My ring steward on that occasion was the famous judge Bobby James! I have awarded C.C.s in the breed on many occasions in this country and abroad . For any breed specialist the pinnacle of one’s judging career must be to judge their Breed at Crufts.

                         I got to do this, judging Afghan Hound Bitches in 2008.
