DOEDIJNS, Mr A Rony Aruba,
Judge Mr. Rony Doedijns
I am involved in the Dog World now for about 31 years. My own breed is Finnish Spitz and Tibetan Terriers. When I was 15 years old I received from my parents my first pedigree dog. This was a Finnish Spitz male puppy bred in Holland. I started showing him and I always say that my first Finnish Spitz was responsible for getting me so deep in the Dog World.
As a junior he won many BOB’s and was also very successful in the group. He often was selected and won several groups. Many times under specialist judges from Scandinavia. As it goes I imported a Finnish Spitz bitch from Finland and during the years I imported several Finnish Spitz from the country of origin Finland. Then I started breeding Finnish Spitz. I owned or bred several Dutch and international champions, European Champions and FCI World Champions in Finnish Spitz.
Since may 2007 I was inaugurated by the Dutch Kennel Club as the third all-rounder in the Netherlands, allowed to judge all breeds at championship show level. I am first Dutch judge who completed breed exams in all the 10 FCI groups. I have judged Best In Show and all FCI groups at international level in the Netherlands and abroad. In 2008 I judge BIS at the Dog of the Year show in the Netherlands.
I have judged in most of the European Countries, UK, Canada, Scandinavia, Asia, Australia, South America, Africa, Russia and USA. For more than 30 years I am a member of SCANDIA the breed club for Scandinavian Spitz breeds in the Netherlands. I became a member of the British Kennel Club in November 2010.
I’m member off the Royal Dutch Kennel Club “Cynophilia.”
Occasionally I am doing the commentary at the main ring at dog shows in the Netherlands. For many years I was one of the commentators at the International Amsterdam Winner Show. I did the commentary at the European Show 2011.
In 2009 they gave me the honor to judge Best in Show at the Amsterdam Winner show. One of the biggest Dog shows in the Europe.
I was for many years the Show Manger of the Amsterdam Winner Show. The biggest and oldest Dog Show in the Netherlands.
Since the 1st of March 2013, I was installed as Director off the Dutch Kennel Club “The Raad van Beheer” www.raadvanbeheer.nl
