HAMMOND, Mr Ken New South Wales,
KENNEL:Kenardobe (formerly Kartril)
Ken Hammond commenced breeding and showing in 1970 with Irish Setters and Dobermann's, successfully campaigning both breeds to many In Show wins before concentrating directly on his main love, the Dobermann. Under the Kartril prefix, has bred and exhibited many champions the most notable being Multi BIS Ch Kartril Mighty Thor. Ken has also bred and handled Scottish Terriers, owned and handled Pugs, German Shorthaired Pointers, Whippets, Beagles and Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Kens work commitments with the Tasmanian Fire Service until 2000, severely restricted his active involvement in the dog world during the 1990's, when he opted to establish his own fire safety risk management consultancy. Until his move to Queensland in July 2004 to work with Queensland Fire and Rescue, Ken has been heavily involved with the TCA Inc holding the position of President for several years. Ken and his wife Narelle campaign Dobermann's and her world renown "Kombinalong" Australian Cattle Dogs. Ken is currently licensed All Breeds, and to date he has judged in all states of Australia (except NT), New Zealand, United States of America, United Kingdom Ireland, Finland, Philippines, India and Canada.
