MINNS, Mrs June E Kent,
June always had a dog of some sort but her first "real" dog was a Shih Tzu which she showed on occasions. Then in the mid sixties came a long succession of Labradors. At one time there were six Labradors & three Sussex Spaniels and she's showed them on a very regular basis for the last 30 years. She started to judge in the mid eighties when entries at shows were immense (about 100 Labradors at most of the good Open Shows) and she was able to get a lot of experience in many of the Gundog breeds. She is approved by the Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates in Labradors, Cocker, Sussex & Field Spaniels and also Hungarian Vizslas. June has judged in Belgium, Holland, Sweden, the Channel Islands and South Africa (twice). On the club scene she's been a member of the Committee of a Labrador breed club and a general Open Show committees for over 20 years.
