I commenced showing and breeding dogs in my home City of Melbourne, Australia in 1968,  and have had quite a deal of success with my “Bonnymead” prefix.  I have had the pleasure of owning and breeding many Champions, Best in Show  and Specialty winners.  Although being mainly involved with Beagles and Whippets, I have also owned and exhibited Finnish Spitz, Labrador Retrievers and Greyhounds, and have handled many other breeds in the showring.   I have imported several Beagles and Whippets from the United Kingdom and more recently have successfully bred from Imported Frozen Semen.

I am ANKC  licenced to award CC's at Championship Shows to  Hounds, Toys, Terriers, Gundogs, and Working Dogs . Hopefully I will soon add the Utility & Non-Sporting Groups which I currently judge at Open Show level.

I have had the wonderful experience of judging at Major Shows and Specialties in England, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Thailand, South Africa, New Zealand and of course, Australia.     

For many years I have been involved in Club Administration, serving on the Beagle Club of Victoria, The Whippet Association of Victoria, The Hound Club,  LKA, and LCCC Committees in recent years.

Currently  President  and Life Member of
The Whippet Association of Victoria
Life Member and Vice-President of  the  Ladies Kennel Association,
Life Member and  Vice-President of Lyndhurst Canine Country Club.
I was  honoured with Life Membership of The Beagle Club of Victoria in 1985, and in 1999 became their Patron.
