I started out with my first German Shepherd dog in obedience in 1969 and put a CD title on it by 1973. I then got hooked in the conformation ring. I then purchased a German Shepherd from Canada which became my first AM & CAN Champion. He went Best in Futurity at the SW Futurity in San Antonio, TX and Best Opposite Futurity in Western Canada. I went on to put a CD, TC, HIC title on him. I have bred and owned seven champions and still continue to show.
In 2004 I applied to judge German Shepherds. I have since then been approved to judge the Aussie, Pembroke, and Cardigan. I have attended two Bouvier des Flanders Nationals and went to judges ed at both. Always try to get hands on, when allowed, at shows.
