Paavo Mattila

I got my first hound when I was 15 years old. We took part in trials, however with no results. Therefore I got myself another hound as well. My first litter was born in 1969. I got my kennel name Helisalon in 1973. I got my first Beagle in 1970 and I still have Beagles. I have also had a couple of Finnish Spitz, a couple of Golden Retrievers, and a couple of Lhasa Apsos. Sometime in the 1980s, I saw a Chow Chow at the Winner show in Helsinki. I was attracted by its dissimilarity and originality, so even this breed can now be found in my house. Being active in clubs is not really my cup of tea, so I cut these activities short for my part. I am however still responsible for the education of judges for Beagle and Chow Chow. I became a dog show judge in 1978 and was named an all-breed judge in 2003.
