LUYTEN, Mr Peter Victoria,
Originally starting as an obedience trial exhibitor, and interested in field work for gundogs, Peter has had English and Irish Setters, Curly Coated Retrievers, the first G.S.P. bitch ever born in Australia, and extensive breeding and showing of Pointers, breeding BIS winners and exporting to the famous Arista kennel of N.Z. Dobermann's were bred & imported from U.K., USA, Germany and Holland, and exported back to Europe, giving up the breed when the docking fiasco took its toll. Great Danes was another breed which they kept and won BIS with. They won BIS at the original Schnauzer Club of Vic. with Mini Ch. Rathmines Bruno. As a breeder and exhibitorjudge of Hackney Ponies, they naturally bred Miniature Pinschers. In the Hound Group he has had only one Fox Hound. In Whippets they had the BIS winner of the Launceston Royal, plus many other BIS awards. In working dogs he has had German Shepherds, and a Bouvier de Flanders (Imp USA). Currently showing a Collie Rough. Over the last 47 years he has developed a respected Terrier kennel in Fox Terriers (Smooth and Wire), Kerry Blues, and Irish. Has bred Lakeland (BIS Brisbane Royal), Welsh, Sealyham, Scottish and Airedale have all been taken to major awards under specialists. Peter's chief reason for having owned many different breeds is that he is a great believer in hands on experience. This quest has rewarded him by many appointments around the world. He was the first Australian judge to judge Smooths in the 130 year history of the mother Club, in England.
