POWELL, Doreen Cape Town,
Doreen and her late husband became involved in pedigree dogs in 1960, on acquiring a Boxer. At that time residing in Natal, they were both drawn into the sport - both the Breed and Training sections. Their prefix Galaxy (1960) has, over the years, been part of their team of Boxers, to be followed by German Shepherds, Miniature Schnauzers and finally Whippets. Finally settling in Cape Town in 1977, Doreen was able to continue in training and judging dogs, as well as being involved in educating the public to "Responsible Dog Ownership" with their Canine Good Citizen Certificate. Doreen is a Life Member of the Kennel Union of Southern Africa and WP Boxer Club. She has judged all over the world, including Brazil, Bangkok, Natal, Canada, London and Australia.
