Firstly I would like to say thank you for inviting me to judge in your country. I am looking forward to it.
I have been competing, judging and breeding my Glenbriar Labradors for over 40 years. During this time I have had a great deal of success, in both Working Tests and Field Trials, and made up several Ftchs and Ftws and bred lots more. My Glenbriar Bloodlines have produced 165 Ftchs & Ftws including 14 National Championship Winners & 9 Top Retreivers of The Year Titles.
My crowning glory was winning The Irish Retriever Championship, I had been placed in it lots of times, But winning it with my Ftch Glenbriar Skippy was special.
One of the things that gives me so much pleasure is having bred so many champions, and seeing other Field Trail handlers getting the same enjoyment and success I have had and seeing them making the dogs l’ve bred into champions.
I am a A panel Judge in both The English Kennel Club and Irish Kennel Club, and have been for over 30 years. I have judged The Irish Retriever Championship on many occasions, plus the Belgium, Swedish & Danish Championships, and regard judging as a privilege.
