ALEXANDER, Ms Glenys Victoria,
Dog breeding and showing became a part of her life at a very young age and Glenys became a partner in her family's well known Walamara Dobermann Kennels at 12 years of age. There have been innumerous wins over the years with well over 100 WalamaraChampions in several different countries, including Australia, New Zealand, USA, Singapore, India and Greece and too many Best in Show and Specialty winners to count, with hopefully many more to come. One of their most famous dogs, American Ch. Calliope Night Sentry (Imp USA) has sired nearly 80 Champions. After marrying into a Terrier family Glenys began her infatuation with Smooth and Wire Fox Terriers and was lucky enough to own and handle one of the biggest winning Terriers ever in Australia. The Wire, American and Australian Ch. Aldee's Poncharelo of Ana-Dare (Imp USA) won 110 Best in Groups and 85 in Show awards after arriving in Australia at 4 years of age. Two other imports followed and several Best in Show winners were bred under her own Ivanhoe Kennels. Whippets wound their way into her heart when she acquired a dog in the mid eighties for her son and several Best in Show winners and champions have owned them since. She began handling a Pug in the mid nineties and currently has, in partnership, Champions and Best in Show and Group winners. Judging called Glenys at a young age and she was lucky to be encouraged by some gifted mentors who gave of their knowledge gladly. Always interested in giving back to the dog world, she has lectured and been involved in the training of judges in Australia and several other countries. Judging appointments have taken her to all states of Australia and other countries including New Zealand, India, Japan, Indonesia, USA and the Philippines.
