We always had dogs in the house, and I was very young buying my first pedigree dog, at very young age I was working in kennels for cleaning, brushing an caring for dogs.
At 13 – 14 years of age I visited my first open show, and I was sold to dogdom.
With 15 years I started on big shows working in a big kennel with a lot of breeds and learned clipping and trimming of showdogs, from that time I visited nearly every show, ending showing and handling in 1981 when I had my first exam for judging Poodles. But until that I finished more than 50 Champions in different breeds.
I always was the most interested in Group 9 and 10.
