valinger Valinger Eva

Mitt intresse för hundutställningar började redan i början av 1960-talet då jag som tonåring började ställa ut vår pembrokecorgi på bl.a SSD:s (Specialklubben för Sällskaps- och Dvärghundar) utställningar. Numera dömer jag ett tiotal forna SSD-raser samt pudel och jag har ägt och/eller fött upp champions inom tre pudelstorlekar, kh. chihuahua, kh.dvärgtax, norfolkterrier och welsh corgi pembroke.Tibetansk spaniel tillhörde också SSD tidigare och eftersom jag var allätare när det gällde hundar och olika hundraser, och dessutom utbildade mig till ringsekreterare, kunde jag naturligtvis inte undgå att se tibbar i alla möjliga former och färger under årens lopp. Intresset för tibetansk spaniel väcktes på större allvar först i början av 1970-talet då jag fick en aha-upplevelse av den ljuvliga Ch Lässebackens Afrodite.Det dröjde dock fram till 1990-talet innan det kom in en tibbe i familjen. Då blev min 11-årige son av en slump ägare till en ung Nalinatik (e Ch Karika of Zlazano u Ch Nalinas Baby Devine) som visade prov på alla tibbens olika fascinerande karaktärer.Ungefär samtidigt medverkade jag bl.a. med en del foton och teckningar till SSTS raskompendium för en domarkonferens och i samma veva blev jag också auktoriserad som domare för tibetansk spaniel.Jag har tidigare bl.a dömt på två av Tibbeklubbens rasspecialer, en officiell och en inofficiell, men detta blir första gången jag får möjlighet att träffa och döma tibbar i södra Sverige. Hoppas vi ses i Höganäs!

van Bavel van Bokhoven Winny

Winny grew up in a family where animals were very important. But because she was afraid of dogs, her father bought her one. In 1956, the first poodle, a black standard, joined the family and in 1958 the first white dwarf poodles arrived. That was the beginning of “van de Molenvliet” kennels that she later inherited from her parents. She and her poodles went to dogshows inland and abroad and with quite some success, as they won many championship titles. One of the major achievements was with “White Margie van de Molenvliet” with whom she in Vienna won the first F.C.I worldchampionship title given to a toypoodle. In this dogshow “Margie” also received B.O.B. Already from the beginning, she enjoyed taking care for the poodles and her parents involved her in everthing concerning the kennel. As she grew older, her interest for cynology increased and with all her experiences she obtained running the kennel it was a logical step to becoming a judge. During her education to becoming a judge she got in close contact with Mw. M. Visser Seltenrijch from the association “het Nederlands Kooikerhondje” . Mw. M. Visser Seltenrijch noticed the fascination of Winny for this breed and asked her to edit and automate the cynological archive. This only raised her interest for this breed even more and in 1987 she grabbed the oppurtunity to take part in the exam for judge for “het Nederlands Kooikerhondje”. By the Dutch Kennelclub she was designated judge for “het Nederlandse Kooikerhondje” and later also for Poodles. She judged Kooikerhondjes many times on championship clubshows, C.A.C and C.A.C.I.B. shows in the Netherlands and Belgium and poodles in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Russia and the Ukrain.. She is looking forward to judge poodles again and also to become the expierence of the qualitie of her national breed in Sweden. Besides that, she is also a judge for donkeys.

van den Broek André  (NL)

I’m already involved in dogs since 1968 when I started my dog carreer with a whippet. Due to the fact that I wanted to explore my interest in dogs I succeeded to become a judge for Whippets in 1981. During that time my attention was drawn to the pharaohound and in 1982. I bred my first litter with the affix: “Of the Netherlands”. In this breed I have been very successful; breeding BIS and BIG-winners and exported to several countries including USA. I also got involved with borzois in handling, co-owning and co-breeding with lots of success in the past (“Gustopsowaya’s” borzois and a long time ago “Van Borjoschka” borzois). At the moment with “Modnyabistru” borzois. My interest resulted in expanding my judging-license more and in the year 2000 I became a group-judge for sighthounds. I have been judging in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slowakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Tsjechie, USA and of course Holland. This judging includes several specialties (for my two own breeds the Dutch, Russian, French, Finnish, Belgian, Italian and Polish Borzoi specialty and the Swedish, Finnish, English and Bulgarian Pharaohound specialty). Also I have judged several times the clubshow from the Dutch Dachshund Club, the Dutch Schnauzer Club including the ISPU show in Holland, two times the Great Dane of the Year show and I have judged at the European- and Worlddogshow.Besides sighthounds and the Mediterranean breeds from FCI-group-5 I’m also a judge now for Pinschers and Schnauzers, Dachshunds and Great Danes. All breeds in which I’m really interested.

Van Der Berg Hans, Nederländerna  van_der_berg_h

När jag låg i min vagga stod Popov, en skotsk terrier, vakt. Det är därför inte så konstigt att just den rasen har spelat en betydande roll i mitt liv. Fick min första Skotte champion vid 18 års ålder och födde senare upp flera champions under kennel namnet Rymore.Runt 1970 introducerade jag min första Norfolk på utställningar. Engelska importen Ch Nanfan Nova och Ch Ragus Brown Herb var verkliga representanter för den rasen. Jag visade ibland även Chihuahua.Jag började döma 1978 och har sedan dess dömt i de flesta europeiska städer, Nord- och Syd Amerika, New Zealand, Australien, Asien och Kanadavan den Berg Hans When I was born, Popov, a scottish terrier, stood guard at my cradle and so it’s hardly surprising that that breed should have played an important role in my life. In 1961 we went with our first ”show”scottie to the clubshow of the the Dutch Scottish Terrier Club and Dumbarton Duskie won het first cc. In 1962 she became the first champion we had. Later on we bred many scottie champions under the Rymore prefix.Judging started in 1976 and I have been to most of the European countries, many Asian and South American countries, to Canada, USA, New Zealand and Australia. At the moment I am judging allmost every weekend.Of course there are many ”highlights”: I judged at 10 world shows and a lot of European shows; did twice BIS at the Amsterdam Winner Show, judged at Crufts and I am qualified to judge all groups and BIS in England. Holland has a long history in dog breeding and showing and it was a great honour for me being asked to judge BIS at the European winner show in Holland just one week before I am judging in Barnaul. I have been judging in Sweden many, many times and I allways like the professional way of organising your shows.It is quite a long time ago I judging in Stockholm and I am very happy with the breeds I am doing in December.

van der Horst Theo (NL)
Group Judge 3 (Terriers). English Bulldog, Bullmastiff and Mopshond.
Born in 1947 in Amsterdam. Our first dogs were English Bulldogs. These dogs motivated me to deepen my understanding of cynology. My father always said, ”What a good for men, is also good for my dog”. Just wanted to know if he was right, I was looking for a course that gave me the right answers. At the end of the 70’s at the KC West Friesland, the AKK (General Cynological knowledge) course followed successively afterwards, followed by the E & B (exterior and movement) course. In the E & B course, I was very attracted to a Border Terrier, a real ”nature” breed, compared to the Bull. Then I went deeper into the Terriers which resulted in steeling my heart. Character, construction and variety are the points I can think of. I find my first love “the Bulldog”, back in ”Bull types Terriers” in section 3, their big ego in section 2, the ”Small-sized Terriers” and build and character with a very large personality in section 1 ”Large and Medium-sized Terriers ”and finally” their tenderness in section 4 ”Toy Terriers.” Do realize that they are all ”true terriers”, but that does not mean they should be brutal, but have a good set of brains and policy to do the ”dangerous” work. Since 2014, I have been chairmen of ”the VKK” the Association of Cynological Judges in the Netherlands.
van Luijk-Grevelink Annemieke (NL)

Judge and veterinarian. Growing up between animals including dogs started my cynological career. Passed the examn for the Golden Retriever and Labrador Retrievers in 1975. Then quickly followed by the qualification to judge the Flatcoated, Curly coated Retriever and the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Between 1992 and 1993, followed by the Nova Scotia duck tolling Retriever, The Welsh corgi Pembroke and Cardigan and the Våttgotaspets. In 1965 I got my first Golden Retriever, a breed that I have had for over 40 years, and I showed, trained in hunting and “picker up”. Which led to became the second International Champion of the breed in the Netherlands. About twenty years board member of the GRCN (Golden Retriever Club Netherlands) with activities in the Hunting- and Breeding Advisory Board. In addition, I also worked for 10 years as a practice counselor and examiner in the E and B old style. Which is rewarded the Golden pin of the Dutch Kennel Club “Raad van Beheer” and the Erespeld (pin of honour) as a member of the GRCN. For about 10 years I owned some Welsh corgi Pembrokes that bred a litter. And now I’ve been the lucky owner of the Curly Coated Retriever for sixteen years. A breed that I also showed, worked with and bred a litter. For several years, I have been appointed chairman of the CCRCN breed club. My qualification as a judge of the various breeds have brought me to many countries in Europe such as Belgium, Germany, England, France, Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, the Czech Republic, Sweden and Switzerland. All these valuable contacts with lovers nationally and internationally of the pure bred dogs have greatly enhanced my cynological insight and strengthens the value that I attach to a good and healthy bred pedigree dogs with the right character.

Chantal van Raamsdonk-Blatter, Belgium

In the eighties I came in contact with French Bulldogs through my boyfriend. The parents of my boyfriend, now husband, were the owners of the famous De la Parure French Bulldog kennel. Since then I have been involved with French bulldogs, Bulldogs, Bull Mastiff and Old English Mastiff. Needles to say I have been surrounded by many dogs and several breeds ever since. Since I met with these great breeds I was “infected” and have devoted myself together with my husband to participate in the kennel. During the first years I helped out with taking care of the kennel, puppies and also went to shows of course. I was fortunate to spend much “quality time” with some of the greatest pioneers, breeders owners in different breeds. Besides taking care of our dogs I also started to show interest in showing dogs and I showed many dogs at events worldwide. I travelled all over the globe and enjoyed every minute of it. After my husband passed his exams and became an FCI judge I decided I also wanted to become a judge. At the moment I am an active judge for several breeds in Group 2, 3, and I am judge of the complete Group 4 and group 9 in January 2020. I am extremely proud of what I have achieved so far and look forward that I can keep developing myself as breeder, and judge in order to serve our beloved breeds even better in the near future.

Van Raamsdonk Dimitry
From the day I was born I came in contact with dogs and French bulldogs in particular. One can say I was “infected” by the “Frenchie virus”. During my childhood years I have followed my parents during long travels to the numerous dogs shows throughout the world. I was fortunate to spend “quality time” with some of the greatest pioneers, breeders owners of many breeds. I spent many years of my childhood in Germany and UK among people who had different other breeds besides their French bulldogs.

Since “junior handling” did not really exist I “showed” dogs during the so called “Junior fancy dress show” where you had to “dress up” in a personality which had some kind of connection with the breed or its origin. Later on I chose to stay at home and care for the dogs while my parents were away traveling, showing or judging. I loved to work with my four legged friends: taking care of them and simply be there for them and to play and train. They were always great company and good fun to be around with.

A bit later I also started to show interest in showing dogs and I guess the rest is “history”. Fairly young I travelled all over the globe and I enjoyed every minute of it. I especially enjoy the bond you build with the dog(s). I love the challenge to try and get a super connection with a dog in order to get that “click”. This makes it able to achieve great results together.

I showed many French bulldogs of which some are very well known in the French bulldog scene worldwide.
We have bred, raised, trained, (co)owned, handled multiple Group Winners, Multiple BIS Winners, 24 FCI World Winner Titles, Cruft Winners and exported our dogs to 60 countries worldwide.

Finally I wanted to follow my parents footsteps and I decided I also wanted to become a judge of my own breed and all other breeds which have my unconditional interest. For me it is of paramount importance that dogs will stay our sound, healthy and happy companions. Now and in the future!

Of course I also enjoy the Dog Show Club life and currently I am in several functions:
– President of the Belgium French Bulldog Club
– President of the Outdoor Uden International Dog Show
– Committee member of the Belgian National Breed Committee

I am extremely proud of what I have received so far and look forward that I can keep developing myself as breeder, owner, and judge in order to serve our beloved breeds even better in the near future.

van Ruiten-Hajnová Gabi (CZ)

I was born in the mid-sixties in the former Czechoslovakia. Married to a Dutch man, I’m living now in both Czech Republic and the Netherlands.

In my daily life I’m a physician, specialized in geriatric medicine with focus on dementia care.

Ever since my childhood I have been a great animal lover and dogs and horses have always been my particular favourites. My first dog was a Slovensky cuvac without a pedigree but with a pretty name, Rex. With him I took the first steps into the world of dogs, that is why my kennel name is Garex.

In 1981 I got my first pedigree dog: a Briard male. With him I did working training, tests and competitions, but from then on I also started to attend the dogshows either as an exhibitor and as a steward. During my time with Briards, another breed came into my life: the Black Russian Terrier. My life with shortlegged terriers started in 1989 with a Scottish Terrier bitch.

But my beloved breed turned out to be the Cesky Terrier, the national terrier breed of Czech Republic. After a long wait for a suitable puppy, in 1995 the first Cesky Terrier came to our home and since then this is the only breed at the Garex kennels.

At this moment I am a member of the breeding advisory committee of the parent club of Cesky Terrier and also one of the few breed specialists worldwide.

In 1990 I bred my first litter useing the kennel name Garex. My breeding activities are not large, but the show results of my (home-bred) dogs are to be proud of: including several European and World champions, successes on for example Crufts and Best in Show titles. As breeder my aim is to breed healthy, sound dogs, with good temperament and movement, who are not only good in the show ring or make superb pets but can compete in several sporting activities.

In the early nineties I started in the Czech Republic my show judge training. Because of my move to the Netherlands I had to interrupt my training, but I continued this later in the Netherlands and became a FCI-judge in 2005. In 2015 my judge registration is moved back to Czech Republic.

Now I am international FCI-judge in the following breeds: Airedale Terrier, Australian Terrier, Cairn Terrier, Cesky Terrier, Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Japanese Terrier, Lakeland Terrier, Norfolk Terrier, Norwich Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Sealyham Terrier, Skye Terrier, Welsh Terrier and West Highland White Terrier. I hope to add more Terrier breeds to my list in the future.

Besides the pedigree dogs my hobbies are horses (I am the happy owner of a mini horse and a Welsh pony) and gardening.

Varlet Marie-France, France

Passionate about Belgian Shepherds since childhood, I got my first Belgian Shepherd in 1977, a Tervueren from the kennel “de la Douce Plaine”, a son of Tarass de la Pouroffe. I lived in the North of France at the time, so that I could spend a lot of time in Belgium, particularly with  wo renowned Belgian Shepherd breeders: Yves Dambrain (kennel “du Maugré”) for the morphological selection, and Luc Vansteenbrugge (kennel “des Deux Pottois”) for the work and top level sports competition selection. I tried to conduct my selection according to their principles. I started my Malinois kennel in 1985, under the affix “de la Terre Aimée”, with a line of morphological selection, and worked on Ajax du Maugré, Ego du Maugré; I have also imported two males who became best breeders, Iago du Maugré and his son, Maubray du Maugré, and also with a second line, for work, with the bloodlines of Cartouche, G’Bibber. My selection plan led to many significant results, with national beauty champions and working champions in the ring discipline. As I have always been a Laekenois enthusiast as well, I have purchased two very beautiful dames, Rustieck and the sr Redding Van de Duvetorre.
After 15 years of breeding, I made the choice to participate more actively in the development of the breed, by following the judge training curriculum and as a Board member of the French Club of the Belgian Shepherd, I am the Président of CFCBB. It is a great pleasure to judge our Belgian Shepherds abroad, and to be able to follow the worldwide evolvement of this breed.

Vasiljevic Ivan, Serbia

I was born in 1967 in Smederevo, Serbia. My first pure bred dog was a German Sheppard. I showed him for the first time in Belgrade in 1982. When I moved to Belgrade for studying I was without a dog for several years. In 1993 I decided to buy an English Cocker Spaniel. My first spaniel had a very interesting pedigree and became a first dog in Serbia who passed the working test, first International champion in the breed in Serbia and many other “firsts”. The kennel name “Jasenak” was established in 1999. Being successful in breeding, my dogs won many titles including World and European Winners, many International and National champions of many European countries, Top spaniel of the year, Top dog of the Year all breeds and many, many others. After I got married, my wife Dragana and me started with poodles in 2002. So, today, Jasenak focuses mainly on Poodles. We have owned and produced many champions at all levels all over the world. My wife is the person in charge for breeding and thanks to her Jasenak poodles keep carrying on Jasenak flag very high in dog world. Becoming a judge was a natural direction in my further development, so I become a judge in 1999. My first appointment was in 2000 and until now I have judged in Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Luxemburg, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Japan. At the moment I am licensed for all breeds from Groups 2, 3, 7, 8 and 9. My ambition is to add some more breeds later. Serbian Kennel Club awarded me with Bronze Medal of Merit in cynology.

vd Bult Slooijer Marianne, Holland

Marianne fick sin första pudel vid 7 års ålder. Redan från början var det viktigt att en pudel skall se ut som och uppföra sig som en pudel och trivas med livet tillsammans med sin ägare. Marianne har haft och arbetat med flera dobermann och har en svart storpudelhane med flera championtitlar men har inte fött upp någondera. Marianne har kennelnamnet Special Attraction tillsammans med maken Jan och de har fött upp mellan, dvärg och toypudel, i första hand svarta men även en del vita. Hundarna lever med familjen i hemmiljö. Numera koncentrerar de sig på dvärgstorleken. My first Poodle came into my life in 1962. It was a 21 month old black Miniature bitch named Arlette vom Küstershof. At that time I only wanted to breed her just once and keep a bitch out of this litter. That`s how I started. This bitch was registered under the name Ariane vom Kastanieneck. She was the foundation bitch of my Kennel vom Kastanieneck, which is protected by the FCI since 1963. September 1965 was the first year, that the German Poodle Club ( DPK) held a Winners Show . Ariane vom Kastanieneck, my black Miniature bitch, became the prestigious title DPK Winner 1965. Since 1981 I am a Poodle Judge . I enjoy judging, not only in Germany, also in foreign countries. Over the years more than 50 Poodles out of my breeding were and are successfully in the showring. Many of my own Poodles are World Winners, Bundes Winners, Europe Winners, International Champions and National Champions like German, Dutch, Swiss, Luxemburg, French, Belgium and so on. Two littermates are World Winners. One in 2002 and the other one in 2003. Time is flying and it is now almost 50 years, since I belong to the German Poodle Club ( DPK). I only raise one or two litters per year. My goal is to breed healthy, black Miniature Poodles with a great temperament. Since today Poodles are my hobby and I hope they will be for many many more years.

Veiga Maria Gabriela (PT)

I was ”in” dogs all my life, but started showing my own Basset Hounds in 1980. In the mid 80’s I acquired my first Whippets and with these I started my own kennel name with the prefix ”Pizons”. Later on, I also owned Italian Greyhound, Greyhound, one Borzoi and several Chihuahuas.

I became a judge in 1999, starting, of course, with Group 10.

Having lived many many years with my husband’s Portuguese Podengos, I finally capitulated and fell in love with the Pequeno smooth variety. I started breeding this variety under my own kennel name in 2005.

I have been involved in several breed clubs, and I was a member of the Show Comitee of the Portuguese Kennel Club for many years. Nowadays I belong to the Technical Comitee of the Portuguese Podengo Club, and in this capacity, I have held seminars for judges in several countries.

I have also judged in many countries and continents but it is a great honour to be invited to judge at the World Dog Show 2018 organized by the Dutch Kennel Club.

Myriam Vermeire (BE)

In 1997 I became a judge for Belgian shepherds.

I’ve bred Groenendaals under the kennelname ‘La Poumyroffe’ but now I don’t breed anymore. I don’t have the time because I’m judging a lot abroad.

At this moment I have 3 dogs at home : a smooth Griffon Havana of Baluchistan (Belgian champion) and 2 Tervurens : Multi Ch. Grimmendans Iroquoi who became World champion in Salzburg and a young male Grimmendans Nvictus. I also co-own a Groenendaal female Multi Ch, Nepal de Bruine Buck who won Crufts in 2015 and a Tervuren male Grimmendans Lavignac who won the World show in Milan.

I have already judged in most European countries, Israel, USA, Argentina and Australia. Beside groups 1, 2, 5 and 10 I’m qualified for a lot of breeds in group 9, for the Rhodesian Ridgeback and Dalmatian in group 6 and some breeds in group 3. I’m the general secretary of the “Lokerse Winner”, a show for FCI-groups 1 and 2, I’m the president of section 4A, vice-president of the Belgian Club for Griffons, Papillons and Phalènes and I’m a committee member of the Belgian Kennel Club and of the Judges’ Qualification Committee. Beside this I’m responsible for the ring stewards at some Belgian shows, the European Dog Show held in Brussels in 2016 included.

I would like to thank the Dutch Kennel Club for the kind invitation! I wish them a lot of success and I’m sure that it will be a great organization! It’s really a big honor to judge at this World Dog Show!

Vojtek Vlastislav (SK)

”I bought my first hound ever in 1974. It was an Afghan Hound bitch already from Slovak breeding. In the times of communism conditions for breeding were much curtailed. We could travel only to Hungary and Poland. Other European countries were for people from Czechoslovakia inaccessible.

In 1978 the first litter with which we started the GANDAMAK breeding was born. For breeding we used only our own bitches, and from those only the best ones. Still under the communism regime, we used studs whose owners we could persuade to undergo all the bureaucracy in order to get admission to enter Slovakia.

My career as a judge started in 1980 when I started with judging Afghan Hounds. Then in 1985 I became a judge for the whole FCI Group 10.

Since 2000 I have started to extend my judging scope to other breeds. So, to this day I am judging the following breeds: Group 1. Bearded Collie, Border Collie, Welsh Corgi Cardigan, Welsh Corgi Pembroke
Group 2. Doberman, Rottweiler, Pincher, Zwergpincher
Group 5. Alaskan Malamute, American Akita, Basenji, Cirneco dell´Etna, Pharaoh Hound, Perro Sin Pello Del Peru, Podenco
Ibizenco, Podenco Portugues, Samoyed, Shiba, Siberian Husky
Group 6. Dalmatian, Rhodesian Ridgeback
Group 7. Hungarian Wire-haired Pointing Dog, Hungarian Short-haired Pointing Dog
Group 9. Chinese Crested Dog
Group 10.All.

I have judged in England, Dubai, Scandinavia, South Africa, Israel, USA, Australia and Russia, and practically all over the Europe. I had the honour to judge at two world dog shows – in Poland in 2006 and in France in 2011, and the World Champion of Champions for the anniversary 100 year of the FCI in Brussel-Belgium in 2011.

I am honoured by your invitation and am looking forward to seeing and judging your World dog show 2018.”

Voláriková Linda (SK)

I got my first dog, an English Springer Spaniel in 1989 and I have been deeply involved with everything concerning dogs ever since then. I won the search and rescue championship in Slovakia with this Springer and also tried agility. My first show dog was an American Cocker Spaniel just two years later. Didn’t have much success with him, but fell in love with this breed so much that I breed and show them till the presen time. Under my prefix LAYTON in very limited breeding. I have bred 42 champions, including 25 International Champions, several all-breed Best in Show winners and World Show Best of Breed. I have also bred one litter of Dobermanns out of my beloved bitch Petra z Tomky with which I also actively worked.

I started judging in 2002. My first breed was, of course, the American Cocker Spaniel. Since then I am approved to judge over 70 other breeds and I have been honoured to judge in more than 30 countries, including European shows and World Shows.

I like judging also the Junior Handling competition, as I very much appreciate the devotion of the young people to the dog World. I had been a part of organizing team of the oldes international dog show in Slovakia for serveral years and enjoyged devoting my time to this interesting work. At many shows, not only in Slovakia, I have acted as the main ring spreaker, which gives me so much experience in looking at the dogs closely, but also studying the diffrent breeds in detail, a I like doing a lot of preparation work prior to the job.
