My judging career

My first appointment to judge Briards was in 1987.   I was then passed by the Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates for the breed in 1995.  I also judged certain other Pastoral breeds at Open Show level.

My UK judging career climaxed in 2011 when I was invited to judge Briards at the world famous Crufts Show.

Whilst a Committee Member of the Briard Association, I was their representative on the Judges Commission of the UEBB. I have also judged Briards in other countries, having been invited to judge Breed Club Shows in:

  • The Netherlands
  • Germany (twice)
  • Switzerland
  • Finland
  • Canada, plus their Rassemblement
  • America
  • Belgium  

I have also judged a "Special" for Briards at the Alencon Int. show in France, and a breed event in Denmark.
