Tony was born in the U.K. into a dog orientated family, his Father having working dogs (Border Collies & Pembroke Corgi) and his mother having gundogs (Cocker Spaniels). The natural consequence was that he should also become involved at a very early age. His main involvement has been in the Terrier Group, in which he bred Bull Terriers with success for many years and is currently an R.O.M. judge for the breed.More recently he has had some success the Soft Coated Wheaten. Tony also has a very strong affiliation with the Working and Gundog Groups stemming from his parents. Breeds he has owned, and of special interest are; Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Border Terrier, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, Border Collie, Pembroke Corgi, Shih Tzu & Griffon Bruxellois. He has been judging since 1976, commencing with Terriers and achieved All Breed status in 1990. His judging appointments have taken him throughout Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Indonesia and Malaysia & Thailand, covering all Groups and many Specialty shows. The highlight of his judging career was being invited to judge the Epol Supreme Competition (restricted to multiple Best in Show Winners) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
