I am licensed by AKC to judge all obedience and rally classes, juniors, Keeshonden and Dalmatians. I'd also like to judge sweepstakes for any of the non-sporting, spitz, and toy breeds. I am completing my provisional in Dalmatians and need one more rep evaluation to hopefully be ready to apply for regular status and additional breeds.
After a career in public administration, I am now happily running My Dogs Gym & Training Centre in Salem, OR. I still breed and exhibit Keeshonden occasionally in conformation, obedience, rally, agility. I recently earned certification as a
training partner with the Karen Pyror Academy of Animal Behavior and Training
(KPA-CPA). I have had a lifelong passion for dogs - showing my first dog, a pomeranian, in the early 60s. I began judging livestock in 4-H, have taken coursework at Oregon State University in livestock judging, and attended AKC and other organizations judging institutes. I began judging at dog matches and trials in the 1970s.
I have served in all breed obedience and conformation clubs in my area in all officer positions. I am currently the Corresponding Secretary for the Keeshond Club of America and the Judges Education Coordinator. I am a member of the Oregon Dog Judges study group.
