Grown up with different breeds I started breeding Scottish- and West Highland White Terriers in 1983. A couple of Champions were made up out of my few breeding as well as some imports did very well at shows. Twice I had a Sealyham Terrier at home and now a Jack Russell Terrier joint my life. During the years I was an active member in the German Terrier Club in local clubs as well the in the mail club board. I got my judging license in 1993 for seven terrier breeds. I finished all terrier breeds in 2005 as an FCI group 3 judge. In 2022 I finished all toy breeds as a FCI group 9 judge. Judging appointments in nearly every European country and six times at FCI World Dog Shows.
