Having been brought up with dogs all his life, along with my wife, Sue, I first started exhibiting my own dogs (Rottweilers) in the UK over 25 years ago under the "Hardrada" prefix, later I successfully showed Swedish Vallhunds and St Bernards. Sue and I have produced champions and Crufts CC winners in both breeds, some of our top winners were BIS Ch Hardrada Let It Be Me JW, BIS UK & Irish/ Int Ch Hardrada Double Dutch JW and, Ch Svedala Tomte Pelle Top SV.
In 2002 we moved to New Zealand, I have served on a number of show committees over the years, for the last 9 years I have served on the Tauranga Kennel Assn (Championship show committee) I also have the honor of being President of the Bay Of Plenty Judges Asso.
I have produced 20 champions, and over 40'cc winners, with champions in 6 countries, which include many multi best in show winners, at both General and Breed speciality shows, Hardrada breeding can be found in many countries throughout the world. In 2012 the Crufts Best Of Breed Winner was also from our lines.
I have been privilaged to judge the following breeds at breed speciality shows, Alaskan Malamutes, Bullmastiffs, Dobermanns,Dogue de Bordeaux, Rottweiler's and St Bernards, and am looking forward to judging the NSW Newfoundland Club Championship Show (Australia) in 2013
