I am delighted to be invited to judge at Helsinki Winner Show. My interest in dogs started at a young age and I have fond memories of my grandfather’s Bracco Italiano. I have been an FCI judge since 2011, first authorized to all Retrievers and Spaniel breeds, later also for Dachshunds and and group 5. Today I am able to judge all breeds in groups 4,5 and 8 and some breeds in groups 1,2 and 7. I have kept Golden Retriever, Flatcoated Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, English Cocker Spaniel, Weimaraner and English Bulldog. I bred more than 10 international championships over the year of Weimaraner, Labrador, Golden and English Cocker Spaniel. Over the years I have judged on more than 20 countries including most of the European countries, the US, Asia and Australia. My kennel name is Passion Ale’s, registered by the FCI in 2001.
