I acquired my first Samoyed in 1969. I began showing samoyeds in 1970 and since then have bred and owned twenty-five New Zealand champions. Our kennels, Nikolaevsk, holds the breed record for the most champions bred in the South Island, including the first South Island bred Grand Champion samoyed. Bear,   NZ Grand Ch Nikolaevsk An Bye Lay, is the breed record holder, winning Best in Show at the Dominion Samoyed Clubs annual championship on six consecutive occasions. In 1974 I imported Carwood Snow Nanette, bred by Gladys Varney in the United Kingdom.

When I married Brian, I inherited his Tibetan Terriers, O.E.S., and Elkhounds. Together Brian and I have owned or bred one hundred and twenty-four New Zealand, Australian or US Champion Samoyeds, Tibetan Terriers, Old English Sheepdogs and Elkhounds.

In 1989 I was admitted to the New Zealand Kennel Club’s Judges Panel. I am at present licenced to judge all seven groups at championship level and to award CC’s to all breeds in those groups. I am also licenced to judge Best in Show.

I have judged in New Zealand, Australia, USA, Ireland, and the UK. 

I have awarded CC’s to Samoyeds in both the North Island and the South Island here in New Zealand. I have also awarded CC’s in the breed in Australia, Green Stars in Ireland and judged a samoyed specialty in the USA . In 1995 I judged the Auckland  Samoyed Associations Open Show.

In 2000 I was made a life member of the Dominion Samoyed Club.

I began showing dogs in the early sixties with my parents Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s.Then in the early seventies I acquired my first Old English Sheepdog. I showed a number of  O.E.S. to their New Zealand titles. I also at this time purchased my first Norwegian Elkhound and have owned or bred twelve New Zealand champions including my USA import NZ Ch Windy Cove Brut N’ Rodna’s Banjo, who was shown with some success in the U.K. for me, by Joe Cartledge.

In 1977 I acquired my first Tibetan Terrier NZ Ch Granton Milord Argyle from Sue Wilson in Australia. Bobby was the first T.T. to come to New Zealand and the first T.T. champion in this country.

I followed this up with the purchase of  Tibetan terriers  from Jill Gould (NZ Ch Arkatagh Sarabande) Cindy Hewitt (NZ Ch Chiangtzu Berillium ), Joan  Cain (NZ Ch Jemecs Briareus and NZ Ch Jemecs Endymion ) Krista Guziolek (NZ Ch. Boshanti Tyson) and Audrey Flockart (NZ Ch Qinghai Ga Dongge Imp. Aust.).

To date I have owned or bred eighty-two Tibetan terrier champions in New Zealand, Australia and the USA.

When I married Louise, I inherited her Samoyeds and to date we have owned or bred twenty-five Samoyed champions including the South Islands first Grand Champion Samoyed. Together Louise and I have owned or bred one hundred and twenty-four NZ, Australian or US champion, T.T.’s, O.E.S., Samoyeds and Elkhounds.

"Samoyed of the Year Contest" in 2002 in the United Kingdom. In April 2004 I judged the New South Wales Samoyed Club's Championship Show in Sydney. I had the honour in 1996 of awarding the first Hamiltonstovare challenge certificates in New Zealand.
