About me:

"PATSY HOLLINGS started her career with her husband Stephen judging at Young Farmers clubs nationally.

In 1972, when Patsy and Stephen married and got their first dog, an English Setter in 1973, it was a natural progression to show her. In 1976 they bought their first Weimaraner, and soon after purchased a dog from the famous Hansom line of Dick Finch. With their knowledge of stock they have gone on to produce more than 100 UK Champions.

With advice, care and commitment they produced the record-holding brood bitch in the breed, Gunalt Joy. They owned/campaigned the breed's first Championship show 'Best in Show' winner, 'Sh Ch Hansom Portman of Gunalt',to date have bred 3 more UK championship best in show winners and  bred the previous UK record 'Challenge Certificate' holder 'Sh Ch Gunalt Harris Tweed' & the  current UK CC record holder in Gunalt De Ice at Stridview , plus numerous champion Weimaraners & group winners for us and others, over 100  title holders in the UK.

Stephen and Patsy are the top Weimaraner breeders of all time in the UK and have also bred Champions in many countries throughout the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Barbados, South Africa, Scandinavia and Europe.

Over the years we have had other breeds including a field spaniel, Sawood Geogio of Gunalt who won through his classes and gained a res CC. Also winning , Golden retriever and Norfolk Terriers. 

These days Patsy leans more towards judging than exhibiting, and awards over 70 sets of CC's within the 7  Groups, including; Best In Show, Gundog, Terrier, Utility and Pastoral Groups at Championship level in the UK.

The highlights of Patsy's judging career include judging dogs in many countries all over the world, which is a great honour. Patsy has judged many breeds at Crufts including , the 'Gundog Group' at Crufts 2008, and her first championship 'Best in Show' in South Wales, 2007.

Patsy is contracted to judge Best in Show at Crufts in 2025

Patsy has written several books on Weimaraners and many articles on dogs."
