I commenced my involvement with the world of purebred dogs in 1974 with the purchase of a young Rhodesian Ridgeback female. This was a life changing decision and my passion for this breed has taken me all over the world. My first litter in 1976 produced Aust Ch Chilolo Karoo who was awarded Best Puppy, Challenge Bitch and Runner Up Best in Show at the 1977 RR Specialty Show in Sydney.
I qualified as a judge of Rhodesian Ridgebacks in 1999 and became an ANKC All Breeds Judge in 2016. In the USA, my AKC Judges Licence Number is 94881. I have judged many breeds throughout Australia and have completed several international judging assignments.
Currently I am Secretary Darling Downs Kennel Club, a position I have held since 2006. I have held the previous positions of Secretary Rhodesian Ridgeback National Council and the Rhodesian Ridgeback Clubs of Queensland and New South Wales. I have also provided the RR breed lecture to trainee judges in Queensland.
