Dogs have been my passion since I was a small child. My family was never without a dog... usually a stray that I had adopted.
I first started showing dogs at 17. After marriage and 3 children, I returned to the dog world to show a Boxer, the breed I still show to this present day.
I began judging in 1974, was licenced for my first group in 1976 and became All Breeds in 1998. I am fully licensed to judge All Breeds around the world.
I have judged extensively in all States of Australia and internationally in the USA, Canada, India, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, South Africa and the Philippines.
I have owned and shown Dachshunds, Airedales, Poodles, and German Shepherd Dogs over the years, but my first love has always belonged to the Boxer Breed, which I have bred since 1965. My world famous Intrends Kennels has bred over 30 Boxer champions with seven winning Best in Show All Breeds.
One of the biggest thrills I still get is seeing one of the dogs I have bred go on to win a prestigious award!
I have served on many dog show committees and have held the offices of secretary of the Boxer Association of Victoria, and Treasurer of the Utility and Non-Sporting Dog Club of Victoria. I am a foundation member and current committee member of Metropolitan Canine Association and committee member of Epsom Canine Club.
I am on the Judges Committee of the Victorian Canine Association and am currently the Terrier Group Co-ordinator of the Judges Training Scheme.
In my spare time I am writing a book on Dog Breeding.
