Before I got my own dog, I took care of my grandmothers German Shepherds. My first dogs were Rough Collies which we have had over 25 years. Later on I however 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 from all FCI groups. In addition to Finland, I have also judged in Spain, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Estonia.
