About Myself

Originally born in Hamburg, I graduated from high school in Munich in 1974, then studied agricultural sciences in Weihenstephan, specializing in animal breeding. From 1978, I studied veterinary medicine first in Munich at the LMU and later at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hanover, where I also passed my state examination. I did my doctorate in Munich in the 1980s.

I have been a member of the German Terrier Club since 1977 and have been one of the club's breeding supervisors since 19??. In the eighties I trained as a breed judge for small terriers and was entered on the VDH judges' list in 1991. Since then I have had several assignments as a breed judge at home and abroad at national and international dog shows and terrier specialty shows (including USA, UK and Scandinavia).

A picture from the late 1990s: my first Deerhound and some of the terriers of the time, photographed by the famous animal photographer Sally Anne Thompson, UK. Sally used to take a lot of photos for me, for which I am very grateful.

In 2003, I judged at the Championship Show of the Norfolk Terrier Club of Great Britain. My BOB Was the Top Winner from 2002: Ch. Belleville Magic Flute.
