Breeder Experience:

Samaralyn Reg'd was a very small kennel, producing litters for our own needs.

Show/Exhibiting Experience:

All dogs were owner-handled and conditioned, and all specials were multiple-group winners. Without campaigning and in limited shows, all specials were nationally ranked, with an Airedale in 1976 and a Lakeland in l993 achieving top national ranking in their breeds with multiple BIS awards.

Judging Experience:

I began to judge when I retired my Lakeland from competition and achieved all-breed status in 2008.

During that time I have been privileged to judge national breed and group specialties, as well as participating in dog shows in many corners of the world.

Experience / Qualifications:

Until the end of 2010, I have been the national newsletter editor for the Canadian Dog Judges. I pursue continuing education with seminars both locally and nationally through CDJA online seminars, CDJA Study Group and CKC seminars.
