STAUNSKJAER, Mr Ole Gilleleje,
Ole was born into a dog family. Since 1927 his parents were breeding Great Danes under the kennel name Blaaholm and they were enthusiastic exhibitors of harlequin Great Danes. Today he and his daughter Camilla are continuing the breeding of Great Danes in the Blaaholm name. Fortunately his whole family is involved in dog sports - his wife Tove has been a very successful Lhasa Apso breeder with the kennel name Palomino. Ole started judging Great Danes in 1956 and became all-round judge in 1988. During the years he has judged in about 60 countries. He is an honorary member of the Danish Kennel Club and has been member of the general committee for 25 years. He is also honorary member of the Great Dane Club in Denmark and has been a member of the general committee of this club for 36 years. Today he is responsible for the training and education of judges in Denmark and has been a member of the FCI Judge and Show Commissions for 26 years.
