Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Mrs Sandra New South Wales,




Dogs have occupied Sandra's entire life for as long as she can remember. Her mother bred American Cocker Spaniels for 40 years. As she entered into her 20's Sandra became actively involved with showing. She bred Black and Black & Tan American Cocker Spaniels under the LESAN'S prefix. Her crowning glory was in 1989 when her Am Cdn, Bda. Ch. Lesan's Just One Kiss went Best of Winners at the US Nationals from the largest ever entry of black bitches. Health issues with the breed eventually took her out of the breeding of American Cocker Spaniels. Her judging career began in 1993 with the Canadian Kennel Club and she is currently now an All-Breed Judge. She also worked with the American Kennel Club in getting approval under their system and is currently approved for all of the Sporting and Toy Groups along with some breeds in the Non Sporting Group. It was 9 years ago that she began breeding Affenpinschers. In a short time she has gone Best of Winners twice, Award of Merit along with Best of Opposite Sex at the US Nationals. Currently all of her dogs are American and Canadian Champions with 3 of them being Best in Show Winners. She also has Canada's All Time Top Winning Affenpinschers in her home. Sandra has been fortunate in having judged the American Spaniel Club twice with her doing the Black and Parti-Coloured Varieties. Dogs have been a lifetime passion both from the breeding and judging point of view and one which she takes seriously.
