German Shepherds and Collies were the first breeds I became involved with this hobby. Rough Collies we have had over 30 years. Later on I entered the world of Sighthounds with Afghan Hounds and Pharaoh Hounds. At the moment we have couple of Collies and Afghan Hounds at home. I am active in different clubs and show committees. The Collie club in Finland has awarded me with the Silver Badge of Honour and the Afghan Hound Club the Golden Badge of Honour. I became a dog show judge in 2010 and I am authorised to judge breeds all breeds.
