Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Mrs Zena Worcestershire,




Zena Thorn-Andrews, Britain's most successful breeder in terms of the number of UK champions produced, now holds another distinction, as the only judge currently passed by the Kennel Club to award CCs in all breeds entitled to them. The only other judge to achieve this in recent times was her husband Terry Thorn, who was also passed for all CC breeds, and who died last year. Approved to award CC's in 130 breeds and an All Breed Judge under FCI rules. Zena has bred or owned 103 British Champions and is now the top breeder all breeds for the number of Champions since records began in 1873. Her record of Champions and over 600 CC's make her the all time top breeder in the UK. Her Miniature Wire Dachshunds are well known world-wide.
