Welcome to Finland's biggest dog event!


Jakkel Tamas


I was not born into a "doggy" household but as my parents told me I started to ask them for a dog when I was 4 . I've got my first one in 1972, when I immediately became a member of the Hungarian Kennel Club. I am a breeder ever since started with English cocker spaniels later on combined with all size of short-haired Dachshunds and also Magyar Agárs in the recent years. I also succesfully competed with my Poodle. I've bred and owned 30 World, a couple of dozens European winners and over 150 FCI International Champions. Based on the intention and "pressure" of my mentor, Dr.Tibor Bródy I became an FCI judge in 1985., immediately had invited to major Shows as a judge. I have been officiated in most of the major FCI, KC, CKC, ANKC, AKC events in over 80 different countries. I've judged Best in Show in almost all of these countries including an FCI European Show and World Show. Besides my activity as a breeder and a conformation judge I couldn't resist to constantly express my opinion related to our profession. That is how I also became involved in "diplomacy". I was the President of the Hungarian Spaniel Association for 24 years and recently the President of the Magyar Agár Section in Hungary. I was in the Committee of the Hungarian Kennel Club's Board in the time when Dr.Tibor Bródy was our President. I am the President of the Hungarian Kennel Club's Judges' Board since 16 years. I also was the Vice-President of the FCI Judges Commission. I officiated as the Board member of the FCI European Section for 8 years being also elected as its Vice-President in the last 4 years of this function which I have been retired from when I have been elected to be a member of the FCI General Committee in 2009. Having been decorated with several awards I am proudly wearing the FCI Gold Pin. In all my activities I remained firstly and most importantly a breeder and a down-to-earn dog owner trying to act according their interests. I know from my experience what kind of hard work and how many shadows are behind every single second of succes under the stage lights.
