My name is Christina Bjerstedt-Ohlson, I’m 63 years old and live on a farm in Southern Sweden. We had Swedish Elkhounds in my childhood home. However, since 1979, my own breed has been the Samoyed. There’s is also a long-haired Dachshund in our household. I go to dog shows, do sled dog racing and other things with my dogs. I breed in a small scale under the prefix Swedsams.

I became a judge in 2011, after serving almost 25 years as a ring steward. My first breeds were the Samoyed, Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, and Greenland Dog. Later, I was also authorized to judge other spitz breeds. At the moment, I’m studying the remaining breeds of group 5, a work that was slowed down by the pandemic. I’m also authorized to judge Welsh Corgis and Danish-Swedish Farmdogs. Over the years, I’ve judged at specialty shows in the Nordic countries and in Poland. I’ve also been invited to judge at the Australian Samoyed Specialty Show in 2022.
