Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Ms Jeanette V Victoria,



  • ANKC:

    Terrier, Gundog, Hound, Non-Sporting

Born into a 'doggy' family that bred and exhibited Great Danes and bred, trained and raced greyhounds, Jeanette was destined to continue the family tradition of involvement in canine activities. Borzois were her first breed, a love that has endured to the present. A few years later Jeanette added Afghan Hounds to her kennel at a time when the breed was at its greatest numerical and competitive strength around the world. Show ring and breeding success in both breeds resulted in many champions and Best in Show wins. In the mid-1970's American Cocker Spaniels, new to Australia, became a fascination for Jeanette. Her first was bred in Victoria from two U.K. imports. After extensive research Jeanette imported Australia's first American champion. (Also the breed's first USA import) By late 1976 two more imports, browns, had arrived to establish a breeding program that has produced more than 50 champions. More than 30 years involvement with Gundogs has included not just American cockers but also Irish Setters and G.S.P.'s.
