I am approved to judge All Breeds within Groups 1, 6, 7, 8 & 10 and Best In Show

I have judged at many of the Premier Shows throughout Europe and am honoured to have been invited to judge at The World Show in 2021.  Countries I have officiated in include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Gibraltar, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Sweden and The Netherlands.  I have judged many Groups and Specialties in these countries as well as delivering Seminars.  Future appointments and new countries I look forward to judging in are South Africa, Spain and France. 


I am approved to judge the Gundog Group and am passed to award CC’s in a number of Gundog Breeds as well as Hound Breeds. 

I have judged extensively throughout the UK having officiated at all levels within the Open Show regime too.  I continually educate myself and partake in Seminars and Breed Appreciation Days in various breeds which I am interested in. 


I am honoured to have delivered a number of Seminars in Europe, the UK and my native Ireland, on my chosen breed ‘The Irish Setter’.  Grooming and Handling Workshops as well as Residential Courses have been undertaken too, with resounding success stories.  These have been super events, allowing the opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie of other dog show enthusiasts.  In my previous profession I spent time as an Instructor and have always enjoyed watching others grow and progress.  Inspiring others is my passion.

Please feel free to make contact should you wish to avail of our expertise in these areas.
