Bleiji-Pors, n.

Netherlands

For those who do not know me, please let me introduce myself: Nely Bleiji, devoted sighthound lover.
Sighthounds in general, but especially the sighthounds I have and have had the honour to enjoy as family members, are essential to my wellbeing. I obtained my first sighthound 45 years ago. It was absolutely love at first sight and this love has remained over the years.
In 1982 I was appointed for judging my first breed: the Sloughi. I only have the authority to judge the breeds I treasure in my heart, being: Sloughi, Azawakh, Saluki, Italian Greyhound, Whippet and Afghan Hound. This is as far as my ambition goes. Judging is for me a means that enables me to interact with the sighthounds I treasure so much, and not a goal in itself. I sincerely enjoy going to dog shows as a spectator as well, enjoying sighthounds proudly being presented by their owners.
During judging I try to recognize the qualities in the exterior in relation to the work and the terrain, in which the specific breed had to originally perform. I will always respect the nature of our beautiful sighthounds, both in- and outside the show ring.
Once upon a time when visiting a veterinarian, an assistant grumbled at my not so cooperative Afghan Hound: “You shall listen, you may be an Afghan Hound, but in reality you are just an ordinary dog”. She was completely wrong. You get the picture, I went in search of another veterinarian!!!

Jakkel, Dr. T.
Hungary

I didn’t 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-earth 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. Without the -often sacrificing- hard job of our breeders we could NOT held dogshows, could NOT own good dogs, and I was NOT able to judge BIS in this event , which I am looking for so much to do.


Jansen-Kalshoven, M.
Netherlands

Cairn Terrier Kennel ~ Cobby Body ~.

Ik ben met de kynologie in aanraking gekomen op 15 jarige leeftijd als kennelhulp bij Keurmeester/fokker Chrit Rijks van brakkenkennel van ‘t Heytse (Heythuysen) en oom Adriaan van Zijl, bevlogen en succesvol New Foundlander fokker: kennel Avalon (Roermond).

Na een St. Bernhard langhaar en wit Toy Poedeltje heb ik een rood Cairn Terrier teefje gekocht en daarmee geshowd, gefokt, G&G en behendigheid gedaan.

Honden heb ik leren trimmen in de grootste trimsalon van Rotterdam (Ria v.d. Hoven) en ben gestart met toen nog AKK.

Daarna E&B en de diverse keurmeesterexamens afgelegd.

Inmiddels ben ik Groepskeurmeester van groep 3, de Terriers, en mag ik de Griffonnetjes en Cavaliers keuren uit rasgroep 9, de Gezelschapshondjes.

Aan deze laatste rasgroep hoop ik nog een paar rassen te kunnen verbinden in de toekomst.

Ik heb twee volwassen dochters en 1 fantastische kleinzoon

12 jaar geleden ben ik vanuit het Westen verhuisd naar landelijk en rustig Drenthe om ruimte te hebben voor de Cairn Terriers.

Ik geef nog steeds ringtraining, trim workshops (ruwharige Terriers) en KK1.

En uiteraard: fokken, exposeren en keuren; dit alles met heel veel plezier.

Door de honden hebben ik gelukkig veel aanloop op het stille platteland:

pupkopers, trimklanten, fokkers (niet alleen met Cairn Terriers) die hun pups komen laten “evalueren” en mensen die een teefje komen laten dekken.

Eentje verzuchtte laatst: een volgende keer laat ik mijn Cairn Terrier teef maar één keer dekken bij jou hoor; 9 pups is me echt véél te veel!

Melchior, M.J.
Luxemburg

I say thank you for the invitation to judge at this show and I would like to present myself.

I live in a small village near to the city of Luxembourg. I grew up with dogs of different breeds, such as poodles and wire coated Dachshounds. Dogs have been a part of my life since ever. In 1978, my husband and I, bought our two first own dogs, a fawn Great Dane female and a black Dobermann female. In the following years we bred several litters of Great Danes. In 1990, I became a judge in my own breeds for a start. Since that time, I went on studying for more and more breeds and I feel enthusiastic about judging also other breeds than my own. I am a member since the foundation of the Dobermann Club Luxembourg in 1983. In 1996, I became a member of the committee and president of the Club since 2004. In 2010, I also became a member of the breeding commission for working dogs in Luxembourg and presiding this commission since 2016.

I wish fill success to this show and not every dog can win.

But each dog should be the winner of heart for his owner.


Mil-van Buuren, C. van.
Netherlands

Hallo allemaal,

Vanuit de organisatie van de Dogshow KV Rijnland, waar ik de eer heb de Bouvier des Flandres te mogen keuren is mij gevraagd een stukje over mijzelf te schrijven en daar geef ik graag gehoor aan.

Ik ben Claudia van Mil, 51 jaar en woon met mijn man, 2 kinderen en 2 Groenendaelers in Naaldwijk vlakbij de kust, waar ik ook vaak te vinden ben met mijn honden.
Ik werk alweer 26 jaar bij Royal FloraHolland als administratief en fiscaal medewerkster.
In februari 2015 ben ik geslaagd voor het keurmeestersexamen voor de Bouvier des Flandres, waarna ik in 2016 de Kampioenschapsclubmatch en de show in Ahoy (Rotterdam) heb mogen keuren. Honden spelen een grote rol in mijn leven, met de Bouvier ben ik zo’n beetje opgegroeid, heb zelf ook Bouviers gehad en dit ras heeft nog steeds een heel speciaal plaatsje in mijn hart.

In 1985 begon ik aan de opleiding hondentrimster en kocht toen mijn eerste eigen Bouvier en heb daarna een aantal jaren in een grote trimsalon in Den-Haag gewerkt.
Via mijn vader heb ik destijds de Belgische Herders leren kennen, hij had toen een Tervuerense herder, en zo ben ik met dit ras in contact gekomen.

Mijn eerste Tervuerense herder kocht ik in 1989 bij de kennel van Astritahof van de familie Damen, geweldig lieve mensen met een grote liefde voor het ras.
Met deze hond heb ik geshowd en heb met haar de Agility sport ontdekt.
In die tijd ben ik ook begonnen met AKK (zoals dat toen nog heette) en daarna E&B maar door omstandigheden nooit examen gedaan, jaren later heb ik dit weer opgepakt en heb de KK2 en E&B opnieuw gedaan en werd toen aspirant-keurmeester voor de Bouvier en de Belgische Herder.

Ik ben ook actief in het verenigingsleven en ben momenteel secretaris bij Hondensportvereniging de Vrije Sprong in ‘s-Gravenzande, waar ik ook met mijn honden train.
Ik vind het leuk om af en toe een Agility wedstrijd te lopen maar ben daar niet heel fanatiek in, temeer omdat er nog zoveel andere dingen zijn in de kynologie die ik ook leuk vind om te doen, en je kan eenmaal niet alles tegelijk, al zou dat wel handig zijn.

Ik hoop dat jullie zo een beetje een idee hebben van wie ik ben en wat ik doe, heb erg veel zin om in Hazerswoude te komen keuren en hoop jullie allemaal daar te zien.


Oosten, w. van.

A Dutch Shepherd Longhaired was my first own dog, I was 13 years young. I like to train with the Dutch Shepherds and learnt a lot as a child already and liked to do Junior Handling and still involved with the Junior Handling. Since 2011 I am a FCI judge and already judged several times in the Netherlands and also some specialties abroad. I am a judge of the following breeds: Chinese Crested Dog, Kromföhrlander, Poodles, Bichon Havanais, Welsh Corgi Pembroke, Coton de Tuléar, Tibetan Spaniel, Boston Terrier, Shih Tzu, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Schnauzers, Pug and ‘Markiesje’. Day in day out I am working with dogs and dogpeople, my passion and my way of life. Chinese Cresteds are in my life since the year 2000. Our Happy Dancing Cresteds are shown worldwide and already won a lot of titles. This show I will judge the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for the first time and am really honoured to be one of the judges of KV Rijnlands dogshow 2018!


Pedersen, G.N.

Netherlands

Is born in Norway, but since 2007 living in the Netherlands. For more than 50 years he has been an active member of the pedigree dog-world, – in different areas and in different positions. Since 1987 he is an international FCI-judge, – now qualified for all breeds in FCI group 5 and 12 breeds from group 1. He has judged in most European countries as well as in Australia and New Zealand.



His own breeds for almost 20 years was the Welsh Corgi, Pembroke and the German Shepherd, – and later also breeding Chow Chow’s  and Pekingese under the prefix Contender’s , – together with his wife Ann Elise.



His judging is accurate and straight to the point, – focused on health and on the natural personality of the breed. After 30 years of judging, he still is a much requested judge, – perhaps  because of his respect for the dogs as well for the handlers in the ring

Schrander, W.
Netherlands

In my childhood there always was a dog as a family-member. A Bouvier, Toy-pinschers and later the American Cocker Spaniel and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

About 32 years ago I became a judge. My first breed was the American Cocker Spaniel and a short time later I passed the test for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

For many years I was a partner in a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel kennel in The Netherlands. There I learned a lot about dogs, behaviour and breeding .

In the course of time I became a judge of the complete Spaniel Section in group 8: English Cocker Spaniel, American Cocker Spaniel , English Springer Spaniel , Welsh Springer Spaniel, Sussex Spaniel ,Field Spaniel and the German Wachtelhund. I also became a judge of the section Tibetan Breeds in group 9: Tibetan Terrier, Tibetan Spaniel, Shih-Tzu and Lhasa Apso. I am very much interested in the historical and cultural background of all my breeds.. My last breed is the Shiba.

In my judging I find soundness, both in construction and temperament, very important. Also the condition of the dog, I think, is of the utmost importance. No need to say that breed-type comes first. However a wonderful type, lacking soundness, condition and the desired temperament can, in my opinion, never be an excellent representative of its breed. I appreciate it when a dog is handled with kindness and respect by the exhibitor.

In my own country and several other countries I judged Breed-shows as well as CAC/CACIB shows.

I was a committee- member and Chairman of the Dutch Cavalier King Charles Spaniel club for many years and was very proud of being asked as a Breed-editor for an international book about the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I,m looking forward to judge on your show.

Kindest regards……………………Wil Schrander.


Sloot, J.

Ik ben 75 jaar en woon samen met mijn vrouw Sonja in Vlaardingen.
Toen de kinderen nog klein waren werd er een hondje aangeschaft en dat werd Loekie een rode korthaar teckel zonder stamboom, erg handzaam voor in de auto met 3 kinderen achterin. Toen Loekie er niet meer was na 14 jaar werd het tijd voor een andere teckel, want eens een teckel altijd een teckel! Na een boekje te hebben aangeschaft over teckels “ De Teckel,” geschreven door Jan van Rheenen, kwamen wij in aanraking met de NTC en met mevrouw van Breukelen, van de toen bekende kennel van de Hen’s Bergen, waar we een standaard korthaar getijgerd reutje kochten (Bontje) genoemd Charlie, een poosje later kwam Elmer een liver and tan korthaar, waar wij veel tentoonstellingen mee af gingen en met succes. Je krijgt de smaak te pakken en er kwam ook nog een rode korthaar, Cartouche van Barnousch uit de kennel van de familie Smit, deze won vele titels. Het leek mij leuk om zelf ook te keuren en begon op al wat latere leeftijd met de opleiding BKK en AKK geslaagd in 1991 – E en B geslaagd 1993. Opleiding gedaan bij mijnheer en mevrouw Hermsen in Schiedam. In die tijd ook veel gewerkt als ring medewerker, ring training gegeven bij de KC Dordrecht. Dikwijls gekeurd op afstammelingen dagen van o.a. Beagles, Basset Fauve de Bretagne, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Jack Russel Terriër, Teckels en gekeurd op diverse club matches. Het eerste rasexamen waar ik voor slaagde in 1996 was de Duitse Brak toen nog een volledig examen op 10 honden. Daarna de Beagle 1997 – Dalmatische hond 1997 – Dashonden 1999 een volledig examen op 30 honden, verder nog Bassenji 2007- Bassethound 2009 en de Rhodesian Ridgeback 2009. Verdere hobby’s toerfietsen en metaaldetectie.

Stigt, H.
Netherlands

My name is Hans Stigt, I am 51 years old and I live with my partner Rodney in Pijnacker. I am extremely honoured to have been invited again to judge at the KV Rijnland international dog show in Hazerswoude this year. I will be judging four breeds from Group 8 on Saturday the 17th of March 2018: Sussex Spaniel, Field Spaniel, Chesapeake Bay Retriever & Flatcoated Retriever.

 

It all started over 15 ½ years ago when we bought our first yellow Labrador Retriever, Cooper, from a registered breeder in Pijnacker. He was such a sweet and lovely 8-week-old pup; I never could have dreamt that by him coming into our lives I would get to experience so many wonderful things in the cynology. Having a puppy in our house, who grew into a lovely senior, gave us the whole experience. I have learnt so much about dogs and had the privilege to know what it means to share your life with them.

 

When Cooper reached puberty and his ears did not ‘work’ any more, we wanted to castrate him. However, before we did that we wanted him to be judged once at a dog show. He received an ‘excellent’ with a lovely report, so we decided not to go ahead with the castration. This turned out to be a good decision, as he went on to sire 8 litters and we became involved with even more aspects in the cynology. We eventually had three Labradors, continued with training, showing, health checks, and all three became stud dogs. As we became more and more involved with the breed, I began studying and eventually took my first exam for the Labrador Retriever in 2012. I passed! Since then I have added 10 more breeds too, whom I love very much. In 2013, with great pleasure, I became a board member of the Dutch Dog Show Judges Association.

 

I judge with my heart and respect is paramount in my judging; Respect for the dog and also for its handler/exhibitor. It is an honour every time that I am asked by a show organisation to judge and qualify another person’s most precious possession. I enjoy the dogs so much and I always try to show this. I want to thank the dog show organisation KV Rijnland for this year’s invitation and I hope that together we can make it a wonderful event like last year!

It will be lovely to see you all on the 17th of March 2018 in Hazerswoude. I’m very much looking forward to it!

 

With kindest regards,

Hans Stigt
