Elina Haapaniemi

My first breed was the Rottweiler, which I have had several of. As a breeder, my main focus lies on Great Pyrenees dogs. My kennel name is Aspenella.  I have also had Shiba Inus. I have been a dog show judge for some 40 years and judged in Nordic countries, most countries in Europe and for example in England, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. I like England and its dog world is close to me. In England I can award CC's to 47 breeds.  I judge breeds in FCI groups 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. I have judged several times at Crufts and judged Working Group in 2019. I am also a member of the Kennel Club. In addition to dogs I like travelling, reading and classical music, and especially collecting old dog books.
