Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Mrs Shirley Ontario,




Shirley began showing dogs when she was fourteen, when her great uncle, a former president of the Canadian Kennel Club started taking her to dog shows with him. She did not acquire her first Pug until 1962, and she cites the breed's "wonderful, outgoing, cheerful temperament" as what most attracts her. She has bred Pugs and Cairn Terriers and has owned and exhibited Pugs, Cairn Terriers, German Shepherds, Dachshunds, Toy Poodles and Golden Retrievers. Shirley is a licensed All-Breeds judge and has judged in Argentina, Australia, Chile, China, Guatemala, Holland, Japan, Philippines, Thailand, USA. South Africa and Venezuela.
