Gary Carleton Judge's Profile:
I have been involved with dogs nearly all my life. My parents brought me my first dog, a Cocker Spaniel, as a gift when I was 12 years old. I worked in boarding kennels in Karori, Wellington as a youngster and helped to show various breeds of dogs for the owners. They included: Dalmatians, Golden Retrievers, Bassett Hounds, Griffon Bruxellois, Springer Spaniels, Standard Schnauzers just to name a few. I have owned and bred American Cocker Spaniels and Samoyeds. I have had considerable success with these breeds.
My Club involvement goes back a very long way. I have been:
Secretary/Treasurer for the Cocker Spaniel Club (at the age of 18),
Secretary/Treasurer of the Gundog Society (foundation member of this Club).
Assistant Show Manager of the NZKC National Dog Show, Show Manager &
Committee member of The Wellington Management Committee,
Secretary of the Wellington Judges Committee and
President of The Samoyed Club for 8 years.
Currently I am Secretary for the Horowhenua-Kapiti Judges Association, Life Member of The Samoyed Club Inc. And I am in my fifth term as President of the Horowhenua Kennel Association.
My wife and I own and operate Boarding Kennels and have a strong interest in Thoroughbreds, the racing and breeding of them. We presently own successful Samoyeds and Akitas. Before this lifestyle I was involved In the IT Business working for one of the largest Computer Companies in New Zealand, in a managerial position.
I started my judging career with the Gundog Group and now judge Utility, Non Sporting, Toys and Hounds at Championship level and issue challenge certificates in all breeds in these groups.
