About me:

I grew up with a German shepherd who was my very best friend during my childhood. At the age of 14 I had my first Belgian shepherd Groenendaal, the breed that I have also bred for several years.

At the age of 16 I started to work as a ringsteward at dogshows and in 1997 I became a judge for Belgian shepherds.

After 23 years of studying and doing breed exams I became an allround judge in July 2019.

I’m also approved to judge Junior Handling and it was a great honor to be one of the judges for the Junior Handling competition at the World Dog Show in Amsterdam.


I have already judged a lot of International shows and breed specialties in most European countries, in Israel, the United States of America, Argentina and Australia and at some European and World Dog Shows as well. I also gave seminars in some countries especially on Belgian shepherds and Junior Handling.


Due to my judging I have stopped breeding because unfortunately I don’t have time for this anymore.


Of course I still have dogs at home : 3 Tervuren adult males. I also own a Groenendaal female and a young Brussels Griffon female. All my Belgian shepherd dogs won at World dog shows and have won national and several international titles. We also work with our dogs : IPO (obedience, tracking and bitework).


Besides judging I’m also involved in different committees : I’m the vice-president of the Belgian Kennel Club, the president of Section 4A (responsible for Dogshows in Belgium) and I’m the general secretary of the Judges Qualification Commission.


So you could say that I’m a real dog person and that dogs and the cynology are my passion!


I am looking very much forward to my judging appointment at the World Dog Show in Zagreb Croatia! I’m sure this event will be organized in the perfect way!


I would like to thank the organizers for the invitation which is a big honor for me!
