Beata got involved in the dog fancier's world in 1986. At the beginning it was in the military organization of former USSR - DOSAAF as a judge and a trainer, and from 1992 as a judge of the Latvian Cynology Federation. For several years Beata was the vice-president of Latvian British and Australian Sheepdogs Club and National Cocker Club. Her first breed was the Collie when 20 years ago she bought her first puppy. In 1996 she imported the first Welsh Corgi (Pembroke) in Latvia. Of course, these are her favourite breeds, but she enjoys being in the ring with Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers too. Dobermann - it is elegance and expressiveness for her. Beata has already judged in Belarus, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Slovenia, and Ukraine, and is fluent in Russian and English.
