I can’t remember when I was without a dog; however, a chance encounter in 1963 with James Wright, a local judge, started me off in the world of the dog show fancy. The first match show ribbon won by my Irish Setter, Lady, hooked me for life.

 

I credit the time spent as an assistant handler at Marianne Cook’s sporting dog kennel with furthering my understanding why a dog has to be built a certain way to do what its breed was meant to do. I later became an AKC licensed handler, and was approved as an AKC judge in 1974. My wife and I still show our own dogs, and this makes me appreciate the physical, mental, emotional, and financial effort it takes for every exhibitor to attend a show, and that reminds me that each one deserves the judges’ best look.

 

I am currently approved to judge BIS, Sporting Group, and the Hound Group. 

 I also enjoy judging Juniors.

 

In addition to my first show breed, Irish Setters, I have owned Beagles, English Springer Spaniels, English Setters, English Cockers, Flat-Coated Retrievers, Pointers, and a Border Terrier. I have bred champions in Irish Setters, English Springers, Beagles, and English Cockers. 

 

I received my Master’s degree from Empire State College, and I live happily with my wife, Shelly, our Flat-Coated Retriever, Irish Setter, Welsh Springer Spaniel, and Beagle.
