Vi har svenska reservdomare anlitade om vi hamnar i den tråkiga situationen att våra brittiska domare p.g.a. pandemin inte kan resa till Sverige. Dessa är de två rasspecialisterna Dan Ericsson (Raglan) och Anna Geschwindt Eriksson (Eatons).
As a child growing up, I loved everything to do with dogs: films, books, tv programmes and other peoples’ dogs. Very strange really, as I lived in a non-dog loving house! My first trip to Crufts was on my own after catching two buses to Olympia in London. At fifteen, I landed a Saturday job at a local Labrador breeder (Ravencrest) and so my love of the breed began. At sixteen, I was eventually allowed to have a dog of my own as my parents thought I wouldn’t spend so much time at the kennels! She was a six months old yellow bitch and by a local dog, Crestamere Trewinnard Skittle. In my early days, I did junior handling, working tests and showing. My first couple of litters were under the affix of Capelcourt, the first litter being by Ch Squire of Ballyduff and I remember Mrs Docking being very kind to this enthusiastic novice. When I eventually bought Alkhamhurst kennels in Dover I decided to change to using that as my affix. I brought along with me Bushyhill Cinnamon at Capelcourt, mainly Donacre/Othamcourt breeding who gained 1 CC and Roseacre Spindrift who was by Squire and had 1 Reserve-CC.
After a break I wanted to get back into showing and went to Penny Carpanini and bought Carpenny Bastion who was brother to Ch Carpenny Bonhomie (whom I trained to get his working gundog certificate). Over the years, Penny and I have collaborated in many dogs and the import from the USA of Tabathas Mirth and Hawksmoor Webster.
At one time I also had championship winning Flatcoated Retrievers (two overseas champions) and have owned a variety of breeds including Yorkshire Terrier, Whippet, German Shepherd Dogs and cross breeds!
I have now owned and shown dogs for 47 years.
I was appointed by the Kennel Club to award CCs in August 2001 and has, in addition to the United Kingdom, judged in the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, Finland, Canada and Russia.
I am a big supporter of Labrador Rescue and proudly serve on the committee of The Labrador Retriever Club.
I am honoured and thrilled to be coming to Sweden to judge the Club Show and look forward to my appointment eagerly.
