    All Breeds

I have been involved with dogs since 1970 where my English, Irish and Gordon Setter shared a home with a Saluki and Borzoi. I have bred Gordon Setters under the “Triseter” prefix for over 40 years and more recently also breeding and showing Pugs, I have bred English Setters, Irish Setters and owned and shown American Cockers Spaniels, Pointers and Tibetan Terriers, plus I have handled most breeds in the Gundog and many in the Toy and Terrier Groups.

My kennel name is ‘TRISETER’ this name came about from my heavy involvement and owning, breeding and showing three of the Setter Breeds.

I have taken many dogs through to Best in Show at All Breeds Shows and Speciality Shows. Over the years I have handled many different breeds, with the pinnacle being handling and winning Runner Up In Show from an entry of 291 Gordon Setters at GORDONS2000 (a Gordon Setter Specialty) in England with a Gordon Setter bitch I bred that lived in Finland.
Previous to the above I thought that my Best In Group 8 (FCI) win with a Curly Coated Retriever at the World Winners Dog Show in Finland in 1998 was one of the highlight of my show/handling career.
In Australia my pinnacle has been breeding and handling the BEST IN SHOW Adelaide Royal 2012 with Gordon Setter Supreme Ch Triseter Celtic Ice.

My judging has taken me extensively throughout all States in Australia, and I have judged many Breed Specialities through out Australia and overseas.

Overseas I have judged at GROUP and BEST IN SHOW level and issued CC’s, CAC’s and CACIB’s at FCI level in Denmark, Finland, Italy, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Indonesia, Japan and have also judged and issued CC's in USA, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, and England.
