GOODWIN, Mr Allan H Victoria,
Allan has been involved with the showing of dogs since 1963, beginning with the Collie (Rough), then to Irish Setters in 1969, with which he was very successful, attaining many Group Firsts and Best in Show awards. His daughter started with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in 1972, a club which he helped form and run for the next 12 years. In recent years he has taken over the breeding and exhibiting of Cavaliers, again attaining many Group Firsts and Best in Show awards. He commenced judging in 1978 and since that time has judged in every state of Australia and both islands of New Zealand many times. He has also judged in the USA and the Philippines. In America he has judged on both the East and West Coast and in each case considers himself fortunate to have judged a Group. In recent years he has been responsible for the training of Gundog Trainee Judges and has acquired the Hound Group. Allan is also involved in other sub committees of the VCA and is President of an all-breed club.
