About me

I got my first dog, Cocker Spaniel, when I was 11 yrs old. He was never shown, but I went to training classes twice a week with him, every week. I was hooked and still are. Few years later I got my first show dog, Welsh Springer Spaniel.

I was also interested in obedience and got my judging licence in 1986, but I gave it away in 1999, when I got my show judge licence. I got more and more involved with showing and judging and those are my major interests.

I’m a member of several breed clubs and canine organizations. I have been a member of the board of the Finnish Kennel Club, Finnish Basenji Club, Finnish Spaniel Society and a the chairman of our local Spaniel Club. At the moment I’m a member of the Finnish Kennel Club Show and Judges committee and the chairman of the Finnish Whippet Club. I’m also member of the Finnish Basenji Club breeding committee and it is my responsibility to teach new judges for Basenjis.

I have three dogs at home; Smooth Collie and two Whippets.
