I am available for appointments to judge these Groups, or parts thereof at Championship level.
I am qualified to judge Child and Junior handling at Championship level.
I am a registered Marshal for DMA and APT* as well as a learner Judge in that discipline.
I am registered to perform the CBA** on Boerboels and have judged the National Speciality for the Boerboel Club of Russia.
I am a Specialist Bullmastiff Judge with 37 years of experience and have judged for the Bullmastiff Club of Southern Africa, the Bullmastiff Club of KZN and the Bullmastiff Club of Russia. I am cleared to award the CACIB and CC & to perform the CBA on the Bullmastiff.
I am a Specialist Jack Russell Terrier Judge with 26 years of experience.
I have judged around SA in both Championship and Open shows, in the Russian Federation, Namibia and Australia.
I grew up amongst dogs – GSD’s, Great Danes and Dachshunds with some mixed breeds and cats completing the household.
I bought my first Bullmastiff in 1979 but this bitch was not registered and was just a pet and companion.
In 1989 I obtained my first KUSA registered Bullmastiff from the Rianel Kennel and this bitch became the foundation bitch of the Chizelhurst Bullmastiffs.
From 1989 to present: I have campaigned and championed multiple Bullmastiffs and have been awarded BISS, RBISS, BOS in SS and BPISS with my top achievers by both Specialist Judges (local and international) and by All Breeds Judges, again both local and international. There have been multiple group placings and a RBIS at an All Breeds Show (Ch) as well as a RBIS show at a Working and Herding shows.
SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENTS – DOGS
Multiple BISS Ch Chizelhurst Chascah was the third Bullmastiff in Southern Africa to obtain an APT pass.
Ch Chizelhurst Chip off the Block is still, to date, the only Bullmastiff in Southern Africa with a DMA and APT pass alongside his HD 0 0 and ED 0 0 ratings (thus emulating what the Bullmastiff should be all about – soundness, temperament and conformational beauty).
MBISS Ch Chizelhurst Chenjela was the first Bullmastiff in Southern Africa to pass the CBA (BA) & he was awarded BISS at the first Conformation Show of the Cape Bullmastiff Club under a specialist judge.
