Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Madame Sylvie Landeronde,




Since her childhood, and thanks to her parents who were as dedicated as she was to animals Sylvie's always lived with cats and dogs, sometimes of mixed breeds but mostly with pedigrees. Personally she got her first registered dog in 1974: a Boxer bitch that she loved dearly and who produced her first litter of puppies. Then in 1976 two Shi Tzu's arrived, they brought her to the show world. The first time Sylvie went to a dog show, like many of us, she caught the virus of searching for lovely & sound dogs and trying to breed them! bThe year after was her first visit to Crufts dog show in the UK, and she totally fell for an English Toy Spaniel with a wide, deep, turned up muzzle: the King Charles Spaniel this love at first sight lead to her kennel "Vilfloriane". Cavalier King Charles joined her kennel later. In 25 years she bred over 35 French & International Champions including many champions of other countries. This passion naturally lead her to a judging career. Sylvie is approved to judge Basenji, Brussels Griffon, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Chihuahua, Chinese Crested, Japanese Chin, Pekingese, Pomeranian, Pug, Shih Tzu, Yorkshire Terrier, Bichon Frise, Boston Terrier, Chow Chow, Dalmatian, French Bulldog, Lhasa Apso, Lowchen, Tibetan Spaniel, and Tibetan Terrier.
