I grew up with dogs as my father had German shepherds and later Miniature Schnauzers, black. At the age of 16 I bought my first dog, a German Dogge .My first litter was in this breed. Further in the future I breed Basset - Hounds, Wire Teckel Standard and Westies.

Since 1964 I am judge for German Dogge and one year later for Basset-Hounds and the French Bassets and Teckel ( Dachshund). Since 1974 I am Group Judge for the old Group 5 and 6. Since 1986 I am Allrounder. From February 1998 I was president of the FCI Judges Commission. Since 2014 honorary president.
