Sue began showing dogs at the age of ten with German Shepherds, progressing through the years with handling various top winning dogs in the specialty ring. She gained her Group 5 license in 1978. Having judged throughout Australia over the years she then went on to become a National Council recognized breed specialist judge after completing some rather arduous exams. In the late 80`s she purchased her first English Cocker Spaniel as they had always held her interest. She showed this boy to his title in North Queensland but her passion for German Shepherds stayed with her for many years to come. In the mid 90`s she became more interested in the cocker then owning a little girl, - once she bred her and started showing her pups successfully she was well and truly hooked and has not looked back. Her whole life is now dedicated to this wonderful breed and she owns eight Cockers, plus four more with friends, including one they imported from Sweden. She hopes the future is bright for them at Cobalt English Cocker Spaniels. Sue has judged in most states of Australia and numerous times in New Zealand. At present she has 4 championship Groups 1, 3,5 & 6 and is working on Groups 4 and 7.
