Aaltonen Pirjo


I’m Pirjo Aaltonen. I became an all-breed judge in 2016. Dogs have been in my life since childhood. I've shared my everyday life with Lapponian Herders, Rough Collies, Tibetan Terriers, and Boxers. I’ve also bred Tibetan Terriers under prefix Triamus. I’ve been awarded with the Finnish Kennel Club’s Vuolasvirta prize for merited breeders. I however gave up breeding after becoming a dog show judge. Today, my weekends are filled with judging appointments in Finland and abroad. I don’t have much spare time for other hobbies than dogs, but I’m interested in travelling and foreign cultures, even when they don’t have to do with dogs.
