My interest in pedigree dogs started in 1975 when I owned a Spinone Italiano. In 1980 I started to breed and exhibit Smooth fox Terriers with the kennel name "Solcamp". Later moving on to Cairn Terriers which I bred under the kennel name "Dark Lane", producing specimens shown all over Europe.I was approved as an FCI judge in 2004 judging breeds in the Terrier group and all breeds in FCI group 10 as well as breeds in most FCI groups in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, the United States and Scandinavia.Other activities in the dog world are a special interest in Specialised Dog Publications where I have published both as an author and illustrator; teaching aspiring dog trainers and handlers on the ENCI (Italian Kennel Club) courses. I have served on many committees including the Italian Terrier Society and at the present time as ENCI representative for the Society of Bergamasco Shepherd Dogs as well as President of the Bergamo Kennel Club.
I was born into the dog world, with a father who was a Terrier Specialist and a mother who introduced the Boxer Breed to Ireland, both were All Breeds Judges. I began to show dogs almost as soon as I could walk and under the Tirkane Prefix, I have bred or owned, over 100 Irish and 31 UK champions in Boxers, Boston Terriers, Poodles, and Lhasa Apsos, also 2 World Winners.
Past President of The Poodle Club of Ireland and Irish Boxer Dog Club and currently chair of Munster Agricultural Club, Canine Section.
I was 16 when I started to judge, awarded CCs (UK) in Boxers aged 25, the youngest person ever to do so, and became an F.C.I. All Breeds judge in 1984. I have judged in more than 50 countries, including Australian Royals, Several World Shows, AKC Shows, Orlando & Westminster, and I am approved to judge all the groups and Best In Show in the UK.
I retired from breeding and showing a few years ago after an involvement of over 50 years but still retain a keen interest in the breeding and development of the breeds. Currently I judge regularly around the world and this year I judged the Working Group at Crufts, (2024 I will judge Best in Show) and will travel to Canada, Peru and other European Countries over the next few months.
Min mor drettet opp Airedales og veldig tidlig ble hunder og hundeutstilling for meg en lidenskap. Allerede som ung tenåring ble jeg autorisert ringsekretær av NKK. I 1984 ble jeg autorisert for gruppe 3 og har senere også blitt autorisert for gruppe 8 og 9. Jeg har dømt i de fleste land i Europa, i England på championshipshows og i Amerika.
Da jeg fikk anledning til å få min egen hund, ble det en Border Terrier: Den første var eng..norsk og svensk Ch. Dandyhow Scotsman, den første Border til å bli plassert i gruppen på Crufts. Han ble en meget bra avlshund i både Norge og Sverige, og var også far til min første Border som jeg drettet opp selv: Ch. Ramatuelle av Sage Hall. Hun var den første Border som vant NM på hi i Norge. Jeg har for det meste hatt hanhunder, men det har også blitt noen få kull. Den siste Border jeg har drettet opp selv, var Ch. Enestående Herremann av Saga Hall.
Idag er jeg den lykkelige eier av 2 Jack’er. Litt beroende på tilfeldigheter, men har blitt veldig fascinert av denne rasen.
Gleder meg veldig til å komme!
I nästan hela mitt liv har jag varit involverad med hund. Min mor Elsa Edgren och jag hade mellan åren 1958 – 1973 kennel Bifrost . Vi födde upp långhårig collie, shetland sheepdog och bearded collie. I hemmet fanns även en certvinnande shih tzu och en mopstik. Vi födde upp ett 100 tal champions och 1972 erhöll vi Hamiltonplaketten för vår uppfödning av collie, bearded collie och shetland sheepdog. På senare år hade vi även en liten uppfödning av mellanpudel samt lhasa apso där ett par blev champion.
Efter giftermål med Per 1973 tog vi gemensamt kennel Moorwood och har i dag fött upp 100 champions av rasen shetland sheepdog. Av dessa är 36 CIB (Internationella ) Champions med många titlar. Vi var också de första att föda upp en icke engelsk född sheltie som blev GB Ch. Vi har även fött upp 3 världsvinnare samt 2 juniorvärldsvinnare. Hundar från vår kennel finns i stora delar av världen. Har importerat ett 30 tal shetland sheepdogs under åren och de flesta av dem har också blivit champions och många har starkt bidragit till rasens utveckling såväl exteriört som mentalt.
Redan 1964 började jag döma på valputställningar och drive in utställningar Då var denna typ av utställningar i sin linda. Det var mycket lärorikt. 1967 bildade jag Sheltieringen, som sedermera blev Svenska Shetland Sheepdog klubben. 1975 gick jag domarkursen och blev auktoriserad domare året därpå. Mina första raser blev naturligtvis collie, bearded collie och sheltie.
Bland annat har jag dömt BIS i Norge, Finland och Holland. BIS int Högbo 3 dagars,
BIS Int Göteborg, BIS Lilla Stockholm.
Har dömt specialutställningar i många länder.
2016 var jag en av domarpanelen på prestigefyllda Sydney Royal, Australien.
Har dömt i 20 olika länder.
Har ett mycket stort intresse för alla raser jag dömer, och försöker hela tiden att skaffa mig ytterligare kunskaper.

Takker for invitationen til sveriges store hundeutstilling St. Stockholm. Jeg er uddanet eksteriør i 1998. Vi er en jagtivrig familie og vores hunde bruges til praktisk jagt og utstillinger.
Jeg har været opdrætter i 35 år med succes. Mange CH, verdensvinder og gruppevindere og BIS er det blevet til. Nogle af de største oplevelser har været at vinde Crufts 2 gang med egen odpdrættede hunde.
Mit hjerte brænder for at hundene skal anvendes til deres formål, og mener fint man kan kombinere brain og beauty til fælles glæde for hund og ejer. Som dommer vægter jeg funktionalitet, race type, sundhed og hund uden overdrifter. Jeg glæder mig meget till updraget på STOKK 23.
Föder upp Amerikansk Cocker Spaniel samt Pointer tillsammans med min sambo Vibeke Paulsen under prefixet Statesman.
Dömt sedan januari 2009, dömer alla raser i grupp 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 samt många i grupp 9.
I have been involved in cavaliers since 1971. Like many it started with a pet then another – cavaliers are quite addictive. In 1973 we acquired our foundation bitch from the late Susan Burgess Crisdig. From that one bitch all the Ricksburys can be traced.
I’m very proud that for none commercial people the Ricksbury prifix is the most successful in the history of the breed, making up many champions in the UK and around the world.
I started judging in the mid eighties and now award challenge certificates to all toy breeds and also dalmatians in the utility group. I have had the good fortune to judge in many countries around the world and have made many friends in doing so. I’m greatly looking forward to judging at this wonderful show. My late friend Dan Ericsson always held Stockholm international as one of the best run shows one could attend so thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to judge for you.

Min passion för hundar och hundutställning nedärvdes av mina föräldrar som var aktiva uppfödare och utställare sedan länge, då främst med rasen boxer. Jag var fyra år gammal när jag tillsammans med en boxervalp för första gången fick gå in i ringen. Jag minns att det var lite pinsamt för valpen kissade framför domaren och gjorde inte riktigt som jag ville men vi fick HP till slut. Där och då väcktes det som kom att bli min största hobby och jag drömde stort.
Jag ville ha en egen hund och jag satt ofta och bläddrade i hundböcker där jag oftast hamnade på sidorna med alla de gulliga småhundarna i grupp 9. Särskilt de med rosetter. Jag fick tjata rätt länge för att övertyga mina föräldrar om en liten hund men till slut kom hon, min egen lilla korthåriga chihuahua. Hon och jag matchade nog varandra bättre än boxervalpen och jag.
Efter några år fanns det fler småhundar hemma än boxrar, det blir lätt så i grupp 9. Till och med en rosetthund, shih tzu, flyttade in. Men rasen som uppfyllde en av mina stora drömmar, Best in Show, kom att bli tibetansk spaniel. En ras som jag än i dag är hängiven.
Som vuxen fortsatte jag att förverkliga det jag som liten drömt och 2010 blev jag auktoriserad exteriördomare. I ringen mår jag som bäst och hobbyn har blivit en livsstil. Detta är så kul!
Jag ser fram emot att ses i december!

Coming from a farming family we always had both pedigree & working dogs. And I decided quite young I would like to exhibit my Yorkshire Terrier. And I got the showing bug & even today all those years later I get the same buzz entering the ring with my dogs.
I am very lucky that both my husband Tim & son Ian share my passion. We have owned/bred many Champions in Irish Wolfhounds, Dachshunds & Yorkies. We enjoy also producing the occasional well planned litter & it’s such a joy to see them growing up & doing us proud in the show ring, or just running around on the farm.
I enjoy judging too. It’s a privilege getting your hands on other dogs & meeting other likeminded breeders & exhibitors, which I have had the opportunity to do across Europe & the US.
I am qualified with the IKC/FCI to judge Groups 4,5,6,9 & 10 & shortly will be completing Group 3. And under the Kennel Club (London) I award CCs in Irish Wolfhounds, Yorkshire Terriers, Salukis & Whippets.
I am looking forward to a return Swedish visit in December and seeing beautiful Sighthounds at the Nordic Dog Shows in Stockholm.
Judge since 1999 and Yorkshire Terrier as my first breed. Now All rounder and BIS judge. My first breed has been German Shepherd Dog and obedience as a hobby in the early 1970s.
When Dog Shows came to my life, I started with Great Danes and a bit later also with Yorkshire Terriers and British Bulldogs. I also started in the early 1990s with Australian Silky Terrier. Breeding work has been done mostly with Yorkies and Silkies. With those even some European and World Winners. Owned also some very successful Great Danes.
My latest breeds I have been breeding a bit has been Pekingese and Pugs and last dog was Miniature Schnautzer. In my family we have and have had Chinese Crested Dog, Jack Russell Terriers, Westies, Toy Poodles, Salukies and Irish Wolfhounds.
My favorite hobby is judging at he Dog Shows all over the world - mostly still in Europe. Outside Europe I have been judging few times in Australia, Canada, India, Israel, Japan, Libanon, Philippines and South Africa.
Här kommer en kortfattad presentation av mig - Micael Johansson.
Mitt hundintresse har jag från barnsben. Då familjen hade både jämthund, gråhund, stövare och drever. Min första egna hund fick jag som 14-åring, vilket naturligtvis var en långhårig collie. Intresset för rasen växte snabbt och inom loppet av några år hade jag redan 3-4 hundar.
I mitten av 1990 talet hade jag min första valpkull och sedan dess har jag fött upp under prefixet Seabound's. Genom åren har även afghanhund och sheltie funnits i kenneln.
Min passion för hund och då i synnerhet collie har alltid varit stark och en naturlig del av mitt liv. Därför kändes det som ett självklart steg att 2010 utbilda mig till domare. Viktiga saker för mig när jag dömer är att sätta sig in i rasernas ändamål och bakgrund.
Till vardags jobbar jag med smycken och design.
Mvh / Micael Johansson
I have been involved in the Dog World since 1968 as a successful breeder, exhibitor and exporter of Australian Silky Terriers under the "DULCANNINA" prefix, and as an exhibitor of all three varieties of Poodles, Pharaoh hound and Lhasa apso’s.

Throughout my adult life, I have been involved with dogs, primarily as a breeder and a dog exhibitor. I am passionate about this hobby and would love to share this with other people. Previously, I was one of the leading breeders of Parson Russell Terrier. My kennel name was then Toutchstone.
I started my breeding in 1985 with the High-legged Jack Russell Terrier, later officially recognized by FCI 1991 under the name Parson Russell Terrier. I also took part of the The Swedish Kennel Club dog shows. My breeding also included other terrier breeds; Fox Terrier, Lakeland Terrier, Welsh Terrier and Jack Russell Terrier, which I also breed. I am a proud holder of the Swedish Terrier Club's breeder’s medal.
Previously, I ran a trim and dog care salon in central Stockholm. Today I am working at the Swedish Kennel Club's Show Department.
I am an All-breed International judge, and as such I have been travelling a lot; mainly in Europe, including Great Britain, but also in Russia, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. I have judged two World Dog Shows in Europe. Totally in official class I have judged 32.953 dogs. I am also a teacher for the anatomy courses and examinations of the Swedish Kennel Club for people who like to be licensed judges.
Together with my partner, Björn Magnusson, I am running the Kronblommas kennel, breeding Bernese Mountain Dogs. We have been quite successful in recent years, and we have exported dogs for breeding to the United States and several European countries. We have been the top breeder in the country for many years and one of the stars in the kennel. The past Kronblommas Rosalinda have been the best bitch in five years in Sweden and World Winner 2017.

I have made the judge presentation compendium for the four Swiss Mountain Dogs.
My big interest in animals does not only include dogs, but also horses. I have a license for judging dressage, as well as for training horses and riders for this. When I was young, I also took part in dressage competitions.
I started with dog breeding/show in 1975 with English Cocker Spaniel. Bred/owned 30 champions, and the most winning dog was Tannac New Fachion, who was the most winning spaniel 5 years in a row, runner up top winning all breeds in 1984. My other breed was Lhasa Apso and I bred/owned 20 Champions. Saxonspring Fol De Rol became Bamsevinner - the top winning dog in Norway 1986. I also visited the Griffon and Tibetian Terrier.
I have held a number of positions of trust within the Dog World, including Chairman of the Nowegian Toy Club for 7 years, some years in the Norwigian Spaniel Club and the NKK show committee. I am an honourary member of the Toy Club.
