My very first Pedigree dog was born in 1979. At that time I was still a student at secondary school and participated Dog Shows and competitions with my East-European Schepherd). At that time in Lithuania dominated dogs of working breeds, which nowadays can be classified under FCI Groups 1 and 2.
I passed my first examination as a cynological judge in 1982. After some years Basset Hound came to stay in my house. Around 1990 I began to interest in Terriers breeds, judge them and bought Fox Terrier Wire. After- Kerry Blue Terrier, which became my favorite breed for almost 20 years. I mated my females in Poland, Holand, Spain. KBT from my kennel „Melynas rukas“ became champions of Lithuania and neighbour countries. In 1992 we founded Lithuanian Terrier Club and I was elected the President. During our first club show I saw a record from Crufts and wonderful small dog- Pug. In 2007 I was looking for a smaller Pedigree dog and decided to take Pug.
In 2013 I was elected the President of Lithuanian French bouledogues and Pugs lovers club. In 2014 I became FCI All breeds judge.
I have judged FCI Dog Shows in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Argentina, Brazil, China, South Korea and other countries.
